In Search of the Mountain of God

In Search of the Mountain of God: The Discovery of the Real Mt. SinaiThis is one of the most exciting, eye-opening books I have ever read.  I am not a bookworm by any means, but I could not put this one down!  Filled with adventure and danger, this true story will keep you wondering what on earth is going to happen next.

Deep in the Arabian desert stands a mountain with a scorched peak, a huge rock split from top to bottom, and an altar engraved with images of cattle.  Surrounding it is an grove of acacia trees and boundary markers. Not far, an underwater land bridge stretches from the tip of the Sinai peninsula to the shore of Saudi Arabia.  This, many believe, is the real Mount Sinai.

The perils Bob Cornuke and Larry Williams endured to smuggle themselves, pictures and videos in and out of Saudi Arabia are recorded in this book.  Many people, not just them, have put themselves at great risk to expose the real Mount Sinai to the world.  Even though there are several teams and families who have made the same adventure, I invite you to read this particular account because it is the one I've grown to love.

Even if you're not an avid reader, you will love this book.  If you're stubborn and refuse to read it, at least watch the movie. The Search for the Real Mt.
