The Lost Scroll and the Secret of Life is actually an enthralling adventure/murder/mystery story.
I thought this would be more of a repeat of the DaVinci Code and was not overly enthused at the beginning of the book, but as I started reading it, I found myself getting caught up in the adventure and more specifically in the discovering of the "secret" that has been kept by the church for over a thousand years.
The poor maligned church is often used in these stories to make us think about what is really going on and Jankovic uses this as a background for his story - set in 1949.
What I liked about Jankovic's book is that he manages to incorporate many of the religious beliefs into one exciting adventure and although the church is singled out, you can definitely feel the influences of the other religions on the storyline.
I also liked that the author encourages us to find our own truth and to "not take his word for it".
I often wonder if life can so easily be tied up - i.e. find the secret of life and things will get all better and much easier - if only it were that simple.
Yet, this book gave me some entertaining moments and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
