The Lotus Cross
An adventure mystery full of intrigue, suspense, danger and lost historical inquiry, The Lotus Cross is a thriller pitting personal gain against the promise of redemption.
For over a
thousand years, history has kept secret the Lotus Cross, an
artifact with blood traces of the risen Christ hidden within it. Now
that its existence has been confirmed, many will do anything to have
it. In this adventure mystery, a manuscript is discovered which
describes the existence of the Lotus Cross and describes its clandestine history.
Its origins lie in Doubting Thomas, the only apostle to touch the risen Christís wounds and the only early follower to spread the faith to India. On the subcontinent, Thomas forged the Lotus Cross, a vessel to contain the preserved blood of Christ. The cross was fashioned upon a base shaped like a lotus flower. It was taken to China centuries later and eventually hidden to protect its precious contents from those who persecuted the Christian faith. The Lotus Cross would remain lost for over a thousand years until the manuscript discovery.
In an age of advanced scientific techniques, the blood-flecked pouch within the Lotus Cross could yield the key to the second coming of Christ. Professor Michael Drake sets off to find the religious artifact. With the help of other archaeologists, the British Secret Service and members of a secret Christian group, he uncovers the secret within the Lotus Cross, but not without great risk.
An adventure mystery full of intrigue, suspense, danger and historical inquiry, the novel is a thriller pitting personal gain against the promise of redemption.
