Description


"The Case For the Jordan Lead Codices" presents a series of essays by eminent scholars underlining the case for proper analysis and restoration of the codices back to Jordan. For the first time, a very thorough analysis of the metal and its origins is argued by a senior analyst in the private sector.
David Elkington provides a brief account of the discovery. Added to this is a groundbreaking article by Dr Margaret Barker placing the codices in their proper historical and theological context, arguing for their authenticity and the need for further research. Her case is underscored by Prof Philip Davies, the man who was prominent in breaking the embargo on the Dead Sea Scrolls in the early 1990s. An essay by Dr Keith Hearne, one of the world's foremost psychologists, explores the effect of unscrupulous blogging on the delivery of fact and context in history. He discusses the case for religious 'shock' in the light of the implications of the discovery.
Jennifer Elkington discusses the effect of the Thoneman affair in the context of proper academic behaviour whilst revealing the fact that very few individuals have had, or asked for access to, proper samples and analysis of the codices.

About the Author






Margaret Barker has always enjoyed writing but it wasn't until she'd pursued several careers that she became a full-time writer. Since 1983 she has written over 50 Medical Romance books, some set in exotic locations reflecting her love of travel, others set in the UK, many of them in Yorkshire where she was born. When Margaret is travelling she prefers to soak up the atmosphere and let creative ideas swirl around inside her head before she returns home to write her next story.
