I suppose The Copper Scroll by Joel Rosenberg could be considered a thriller, albeit a religious one. This is the fourth book in his end times series, preceded by The Last Jihad, The Last Days, and The Ezekiel Option. This latest installment follows Jon Bennett and Erin McCoy Bennett (yes, they did get married!) on the ultimate treasure hunt. Of course, some nasty fellows learn what they are doing, courtesy of a mole, and try to wreck everyone's day. There's lots of action, gunfights, and adrenaline-pumping twists, all wrapped up by a happy, intriguing, ending. Rosenberg also peppers his novel with plenty of Biblical and historical references in order to provide even the most Biblically-inept reader the basic knowledge to understand the plot. He weaves together archeological finds, Biblical text, and his own creativity, resulting in a very interesting read. Even if you're not interested in Bible prophecy or history, this book will get you hooked!
