Great book, if you are interested in religious history. This book is presented in two parts. The first part talks about the discovery and validation of the James ossuary. There was a documentary about this on the History or Discovery channel about a year ago. As a matter of fact, they mention this being made within the book. The second part of the book talks about Jesus' brother James as a person. The author puts together a story based on the Christian gospels as well as documented statements from historic writers during the first century. He places all the information in the Jewish society as we knew it for that time. He puts together a pretty compelling story about James.
