Synopsis: In the Beginning, there was . . . The Word.

The classic thriller of an ancient manuscript, a secret society committed to hiding an explosive truth, and the man who must uncover that truth--if he can stay alive long enough

In the ruins of the ancient Roman seaport of Ostia Antica, an Italian archaeologist has discovered a first century papyrus, its faded text revealing a new gospel written by James, younger brother of Jesus. This discovery will show the world a new Jesus Christ, fill in the missing years of his ministry, contradict the existing accounts of his life--and potentially destroy the foundation of 2,000 years of Western civilization.

First published in 1972, The Word remains a classic of brilliant storytelling, authentic detail and breathtaking narrative power.

About the Author: Irving Wallace wrote sixteen novels and seventeen nonfiction titles during his long career. Together his books sold more than 250,000,000 copies around the world; many became fixtures on the bestseller lists.
