Synopsis

Synopsis

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.

"The Case for the Jordan Lead Codices provides a history and in-depth scientific analysis of the codices - while not conclusive, they certainly indicate the codices are deserving of much greater study - as well as a scathing indictment of the Internet's unchecked proliferation of self-declared experts souring the possibility of further research." --Glenn Dallas, SF Book Review
