Sofer, A Love and Beyond

LITERATURE: A LOVE & BEYOND Wins 2016 Best Book Award (Broadway World Books).
Author Dan Sofer's debut novel, "A Love and Beyond," (http://hyperurl.co/alab) has won the 2016 Best Book Award (for the category of Religious Fiction).

ESRA Magazine has compared the novel favorably with Dan Brown's bestselling "Da Vinci Code." Sofer's novel adds a unique Jewish twist to the conspiracy theory and thriller genres.

You can decide how much of a recommendation that is for yourself. I have enjoyed the Dan Brown novels and movies, but I don't recommend them as reliable sources for history. From the description I see that Sofer's book involves the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Copper Scroll, the Talmud, the Jerusalem dating scene, and "a ruthless secret society eager to trigger the End of Days." What could go wrong?
