Sinossi

Combining the adrenaline-fueled adventure of Indiana Jones with the thrills of a Steve Berry Novel, The Bone Box is the latest in biblical archeological suspense.

Archeologist and agnostic Randall Bullock has come to Israel to try and resurrect his crumbling career and shattered life. Teaming up with Miri Sharon, a beautiful representative of Israeli Antiques Authority, the two unearth a stone casket marked "Joseph, son of Caiaphas," which contains several fragile scrolls that document the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This discovery launches Miri and Randall, along with his estranged nineteen-year-old daughter, Tracy, into a race to validate the monumental find, no matter what the Israeli authorities, media circus, and archaeological rivals want the world to believe. Forced to face the power of this historical resurrection, Randall must also struggle with his own beliefs -- or lack of them -- while trying to keep the consequences of their discovery from taking a disastrous turn.

The Bone Box, fraught with political intrigue, is a suspense-filled blend of historical fact, romance, and transforming faith. Through all the danger and struggle, Randall discovers how easy -- and deadly -- it is to ignore the evidence and reject the true story of Christ.

5.0 su 5 stelle Imagine that! 18 marzo 2013
Di Barbara J. Foos - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I was very interested in reading this book, first because I know the author and love his sense of humor, and his wisdom. Second because I read the story line and was interested to see how Joseph son of Caiaphas "bone box" was found, and what was in the scroll.
I really enjoyed the book, it was one that is hard to put down. There was Bob's sense of humor throughout the book. There were some VERY touching moments, and the last several chapters had me in tears, in a joyful way.
Thank you Bob for all your mental pictures of the places you took us to. And thank you so much for all the background I know you had to study. Very historical, and a GREAT read!
There was a lot of inspiring imagination put into this book.
Thank you, Barb

5.0 su 5 stelle A Wow! Read 18 settembre 2013
Di Jeanette E. Levellie - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
From page one, where a has-been archaeologist is called on to research two ancient caskets, to the final plot twist, The Bone Box fascinated and entertained this critical reader.

I was impressed with Hostetler's ability to weave three sub-plots into one, and to change points of view from modern characters and settings to ancient ones with seeming ease.

The author must have spent years researching for The Bone Box--it brims with Jewish history and geography that will delight the most astute reader.

But my favorite aspect of this masterfully-written novel is that it caused me to ask myself, "Do I just believe in Jesus, or am I following Jesus?"

Wow. And thank you.

4.0 su 5 stelle Book Review: The Bone Box 30 agosto 2009
Di Keiki Hendrix - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
An agnostic archeologist, is asked to begin an emergency excavation of a burial site in Taipoit, just outside of Jerusalem where he discovers the remains of Caiaphas, the High Priest that presided over the trial and subsequent delivery of Jesus Christ to the Romans to be crucified.

In Bob Hostetler's "The Bone Box", archeologist Randall Bullock lives a mediocre life participating in digs far from his family. The recent loss of his wife and the strained relationship with his only daughter intensifies his loneliness driving him to drink , despair and loss of interest in his chosen occupation.

An old friend offers him an opportunity to investigate a cave recently discovered at a construction site. While on location, his daughter Tracy (recently expelled from college) arrives unexpectedly creating more complexity as he attempts to expedite the digg before the Jewish Sabbath.

An Israeli Antiques Authority guard named Miri Sharon is assigned to the site and instructs Randall in some of the complex customs of the Jewish religion stressing that "nothing in Israel is simple". Indeed it is not as Randall soon discovers a mob surrounding the site insisting that any bones discovered be surrendered to them for proper burial.

Randall and his daughter hurry to document as much of the discovery as possible before they are forced to surrender the bones to the insistent Jews but not before he discovers a scroll.This discover would be monumental to history but the great significance is how the discovery of the scroll affects Randall Bullock.

For purely evidential reasons and with only vague memories of the name Caiaphas from his wife and from his childhood, Randall searches the bible to discover more about this man.

A parallel account of Caiaphas is told beginning with his appointment as High Priest portraying the man in a much more `human' way than I have read before. The story of John the Baptist arrival on the scene, Yeshua's many miracles and healings, and Yeshua's subsequent trial and crucifixion are retold from Caiaphas' viewpoint. This is a fiction account,of course, but was very well researched. Christian readers will connect many of the events described in the parallel story.

What follows is political intrigue, the path of salvation, and finally reconciliation and redemption. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it highly.

5.0 su 5 stelle Review from "It Is To Write" (www.brucejudisch.blogspot.com) 23 ottobre 2008
Di Bruce Judisch - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Rather than keep you in suspense of the inevitable, I'm going to begin my review of Bob Hostetler's "The Bone Box" with a digression. That'll get it out of the way up front.

One of the great things about Biblical fiction is that it allows us the freedom to examine the record in greater detail than what Scripture often actually gives us. However, that's a two-edged sword. On one edge, there's a danger of the writer weaving his own agenda into the Biblical record and straining, sometimes to the breaking point, reasonable inference (witness accusations against Dan Brown's The DaVinci Code).

On the other edge, through careful research and skillful storytelling, the author can present angles on events and people that are entirely plausible and in keeping with the Scriptural account, but lend a novel (pun intended) perspective on them. In doing so, she offers something perhaps we hadn't thought of before. The unexpected inference--or `twist'--not only enhances the entertainment value, but can also broaden our spiritual horizons.

The latter requires intellectual honesty. The former requires...well, nothing to commend. Happily for us, Mr. Hostetler's "The Bone Box" is guilty of the latter and not the former.

Dr. Randall Bullock is an archaeologist who has pretty much mucked up his personal life in deference to his professional one. Recently widowed, Dr. Bullock tries to put himself back on an even keel by immersing himself in a new dig outside Jerusalem. When a construction project collapses an ancient tomb nearby, he is offered the opportunity to solo the project to examine its contents before having to turn them over to the Antiquities Authority. He discovers no less than the ossuary (bone box) containing the remains of one Joseph bar Caiaphas. Yup, the same Caiaphas who presided over Christ's trial. In the ossuary is a small scroll, the contents of which cast a stunning light on the events of over two thousand years ago.

Enter daughter Tracy, recently expelled from college, who shows up in Israel in search of a father she barely knows--and respects even less--due to his absence from all the significant events of her life, including the death of her mother. They both embark on an awkward road of attempted reconciliation, which comes at a particularly difficult time as the demands of this momentous archaeological discovery pull at her father's attentions. Just like before. Just like always.

Interspersed with Dr. Bullock's story are flashbacks to the first century ad, with Caiaphas playing the central role. From his installation as Kohen haGadol (the High Priest), through the preaching of John the Baptist, to Jesus' trial, Caiaphas is shown in a very interesting light--and as the subject of a most fascinating twist. I don't think you're going to anticipate this one.

Mr. Hostetler's careful research is evident throughout the story. You'll learn loads about modern and ancient Israel through the pages of "The Bone Box". The only possible criticism I could offer to the author's technique might be the reliance of side narratives to enlighten the reader on Hebrew history and culture. Perhaps more of the education could have been interwoven into the story. For example, Dr. Bullock could have presented some of the facts in dialog with Tracy (or other similar exchanges), thereby educating the reader through the action of the story instead of digressive explanations, which, I felt, pulled me away from the story a little more often than I would like to have been pulled. But don't let that dissuade you. The tale and the education are well worth the ride.

Mr. Hostetler's skill at storytelling is just as evident. He mixes intrigue, suspense, pathos and even romance wonderfully in a tale that tackles a well worn story in a fresh and meaningful way. Oh, and what becomes of this discovery that has such crucial historical and theological significance? Well, that's Mr. Hostetler's point. Read the book. He relates it much better than I ever could.

Final thought: I note on the title pages of my own works of Biblical fiction the following: "It has been the author's intent to remain as true to the Biblical account as possible, filling in additional events, descriptions and characters where Scripture permits to accommodate the story line. Such extra-Biblical references are products of the author's own imagination and are not intended to represent any persons, living or dead." It, I believe, should be a goal of every author of Biblical fiction that their work would motivate the reader to delve back into the Bible (cf. Acts 17:11). There, fact will be separated from fiction, and the lesson can be applied against the Authoritative record.

Fortunately, (at the risk of putting words in his mouth) it appears Mr. Hostetler shares the above sentiment. "The Bone Box" was a real pleasure to read. Entertaining, thought-provoking, real, and honest. A great blend of historical and contemporary fiction that really means something.

Yup, highly recommended.

Thanks, Mr. Hostetler.
