However, the book falls short of expectations in several respects. All characters were lacking in any depth or charisma. Its like the scope of the history became too much for the plot. All in all, a story line on christianity I didn’t mind reading. This book shared a lot of the same ideas with me, oast I found myself highlighting a lot of passages to show my family to prove that I am not the only one who has the ideas that I do. Just about to start reading – will let you now if it is worth the davi No eBook available Amazon.

Dec 02, Emily Lee rated it liked it Shelves: The mystery story here held more interest, but it was wrapped in a gosel dull plot.

This did leave me with a desire to learn more about the Pre-Roman Celtic Christianity, as well as Gospwl Christianity. The concept of a lost gospel, written by the hand of Jesus himself, is intriguing, and the thought of what Jesus may have intended for his followers, versus what the church has made of itself and the world, is fascinating and a bit heart-breaking.

The Last Gospel : David Gibbins :

A trail of clues leads to a number of underground and underwater burial chambers, including one under the City of London. I don’t mind that I had to look up Claudius or parts of the Roman period to have a little more understanding of the places we were visiting. I did enjoy the flashbacks to Claudius’ life. Long conversations got confusing to try and figure out who was saying what.


What if you were the one who discovered this secret?

My Favourite Books: The Last Gospel, David Gibbins

I would rather have read a nonfiction of the author’s real experiences than this. I really look forward to Mr. And, I LOVE history and archeology, and science when it’s broken into layman’s terms for my non-scientific brain. I saw that a lot of the reviewers here kept picking on the amount of detail in the book. His many publications on ancient shipwreck sites have appeared in scientific journals, books and popular magazines.

The authors makes our heroes travel from Herculaneum to Rome to London to California, and gjbbins Jerusalem from one page to another.

Unlikely objects were suddenly placed in the way and a late and improbable revelation involving a character so minor as to be a virtual nonentity set the next novel up, but added nothing to this one.

With this book, its the author that brings the story down.

This is the story of one last Gospel, left behind in the age of the New Testament, in the greatest days of the Roman Empire, and of its extraordinary secret, one that has lain concealed for years. The lead char is a Mary Sue and wish fulfillment of the author. This isn’t an archaeology tutorial. He fakes his own death and disappears from imperial Rome to contrive an ingenuous plan to hide this secret gospel of Christ from those who would destroy it.

To get these clues involves thrilling, near death escapes and the genius ability to piece together obscure clues. The words of the Gospel are: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This is an intelligent archaeological adventure thriller written by an author who clearly enjoys throwing his two heroes into the midst of a quest and then sits back to find the best way to get them out it again, by any means possible.

The Last Gospel

As a Christian, the parts about Jesus lwst some appeal; as a Londoner, the setting of a part of the novel just around the corner from an old job offered a personal touch and studying Pompeii in Latin classes all those years ago evoked memories.

IT was a unique story line for me, the history was interesting to me.
