The Aleppo Code by Terry Brennan

Will the code reveal history’s most powerful weapon for destruction – or humanity’s only hope?

The living members of Tom Bohannon’s band of adventurers gather again in Jerusalem – physically battered, emotionally exhausted, spiritually challenged, and in various stages of shock – to examine a copy of the tenth-century Aleppo Code, the oldest complete text of Jewish scripture. What the clues inside reveal could lead to the reuniting of the Ark of the Covenant with its true source of power, a weapon that could lead to victory for this ragged bunch trying to save the world.

Hunted by the relentless assassins of the Prophet’s Guard and caught in the web of an international conspiracy plotting the conquest of Europe, Bohannon’s team searches the ruins of Ancient Babylon. Their search lands them amid the chaos that engulfs western Iraq, but they must press on to accomplish one of the most pivotal pieces of end-times prophecy. This intrepid group will uncover secrets that require them to risk everything for their faith, their country, and the peace of all mankind. 

Unfolding against the backdrop of an Israeli/U.S. strike against Iran and the planned economic overthrow of the European Union by the sinister, secret head of the international Muslim Brotherhood, The Aleppo Code is a heart-pounding race. Brennan takes an epic story on a grand scale and tells it primarily through the eyes of one man who is desperately trying to save the world as he follows God’s purpose for his life.

The third of Terry Brennan’s Jerusalem Prophecies novels, The Aleppo Code takes its readers on a riveting adventure rivaling that of Indiana Jones. Tom Bohannon and his team follow clues around the world in search of an important and powerful historical artifact, hoping to keep it out of the wrong hands. Though I haven’t yet read the previous two books (The Sacred Cipher and TheBrotherhood Conspiracy), I certainly enjoyed reading The Aleppo Code with all its fast-paced and non-stop adventure, intrigue, and action, and would recommend that fans of adventure take the time to read this book - but any interested reader should start from the beginning (unlike me), as I imagine reading the first two books would help in understanding the characters better. Still, it’s a highly enjoyable, exciting, and worthwhile read.

Thanks to Kregel Publications, I received a copy of The Aleppo Code and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
