Have you noticed the rising tide of rebellion in society, a lack of confidence in the authority of both secular and sacred leaders? Gospel Truths is a search for the Book of Thomas the Contender and the Gospel of Thomas, two works that could change the very fabric of society and spirituality. For the message supposedly lying within these two texts contains the key to fully finding one's identity, purpose and power within one's self and not based on external people or ideas. But as in every powerful truth, there are those who find this potential discovery a disaster in the making, a formidable force to destroy the powers that be. So what's the obvious conflict? Travel to England and France for an unforgettable experience!

J. G. Sandom, like Dan Brown and other writers covering similar conflicts, offers each reader a thrilling adventure ride but also some fascinating knowledge about Masons, the Founding Fathers of America, antiques, architecture, cathedrals, and so much more.

The protagonist who will guide us through this labyrinth is Nigel Lyman, a once notable British Detective now wallowing in grief and sorrow over a job gone bad and a terrible personal loss. But morose or otherwise, Lyman is called to investigate the mysterious death of an Italian financier tied to a formidable banking scandal unprecedented in the global banking world. Little does Nigel know that more battles and deaths will follow but on the journey Nigel begins what will bring him the purpose and healing he most needs and a conclusion the world needs even more! To stop him unknown enemies will galvanize their most fierce forces with their own very specific mission.

Gospel Truths is a dynamic, exciting, intelligent read that will thrill every reader and for true seekers may even send you searching for the real "gospel truth." A notable novel that will gain fresh attention and interest of new readers! Move over, Dan Brown!
