From In 1993, Parfitt, a professor of Jewish studies in London, published Journey to the Vanished City, a fascinating look at the Lemba people of South Africa, who believed they were descended from Jews. In the intervening years, through use of DNA, the Lemba’s claim was proven correct. Here, Parfitt, a real-life Indiana Jones, details another quest, his attempt to solve the mystery of the Ark of the Covenant, a Jewish artifact said to have contained the Ten Commandments. Parfitt’s narrative fits the Indiana Jones label; it’s thoroughly cinematic in tone, with scenes of heartstopping action and featuring characters so quirky they feel more fictional than real. (With no notes, and the disclaimer that names and personal details have been changed, who can say for sure?) But the book also has strong scholarly underpinnings that explain the mystical nature of the Ark, its possible uses, and why and how it could still exist. The resolution of the mystery again evokes Raiders of the Lost Ark, but it could have real-world significance, and it just might lead to another fascinating adventure. --Ilene Cooper Review “It’s worthy of a Spielberg epic: an intrepid British don’s 20-year mission to find the Lost Ark of the Covenant.” (Daily Mail ) “Parfitt’s passionately crafted new theory, like his first, could eventually be proven right…” (Time Magazine ) “Parfitt’s scholarly, fascinating work explains and explodes a pervasive myth.” (The Times ) “Deemed ‘the British Indiana Jones’ by the Wall Street Journal, Parfitt is both scholar and adventurer. This real-life account [is] a gripping…yarn. Recommended.” (Library Journal )
