[From the STMcC archives;
...And I thought to myself: ‘What better time than Easter Day 2012 to “resurrect” this old book review of mine?’
So, here she “arrr”, matey:
All hands on deck for the reading of Robert Cornuke's ‘THE LOST SHIPWRECK OF PAUL’, a seaworthy tale of Biblical proportions! This book should appeal to you if: A) you are a crusty, old, armchair sea dog; B) a Christian interested in Biblical archaeology; or, C) simply a reader looking for a good story. But you will especially love this book if you happen to be all three: A crusty, old, Christian, armchair sea dog looking for a good story related to Biblical archaeology. Now we're talkin'!
This latest installment in Robert Cornuke's series of adventures that take him in search of evidence to support the Bible's historicity sets sail for the island of Malta, seeking the ancient lead anchors from the shipwreck of Saint Paul. Using the words of Luke recorded in Acts chapter 27 as his first mate, Cornuke calculates where these long lost lead treasures are apt to be found.
Nevertheless, this is a slightly padded but worthwhile story that proves beyond all reasonable doubt that these recovered artifacts, which meet all of the demanding criteria, are indeed remnants of
This title is certainly superior to Cornuke's disappointing ‘IN SEARCH OF THE LOST MOUNTAINS OF NOAH’, but not nearly as suspenseful as his most important book ‘IN SEARCH OF THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD (THE DISCOVERY OF THE REAL MOUNT SINAI)’. But all in all, ‘THE LOST SHIPWRECK OF PAUL’ manages to stay afloat while both enlightening and entertaining. It's a quick read, making it an ideal companion on a plane flight or for a weekend at the beach; although I doubt that I would pack it along on a pleasure cruise, if you catch my "drift."
