The young Mayan archaeologist gasped when his flashlight illuminated the ‘Mormon Grail’ in the legendary ‘roomful of golden plates.’ Dr. Cortez Ixatotal knew the ancient artifact’s name derived from its supposedly miraculous powers, like the mystical ‘Holy Grail.’ He had been willing to kill the old legend-keeper to locate this mysterious room….”The Mormon Grail,” Dr. Ixatotal thought, “will grant me eternal wealth in this life. I’ll worry about eternal life somewhere down the road, if ever.”
Dr. Ixatotal’s search for the Mormon Grail is motivated by gold lust rather than scientific curiosity. The Mormon Grail turns some into thieves and murderers, while providing others with tangible evidence of God’s existence. Take a dangerous journey of discovery about an ancient artifact that could shake the religious world.
The Mormon Grail is an alternative retelling of the amazing Mormon saga, including the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, which Mormons consider to be scripture on par with the Bible. The book captures the mythology of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon), one of the world’s fastest growing churches. Readers will encounter visions, angels, seer stones, miracles, persecutions, insect plagues, three men who can’t die, handcart treks, atheistic dictators and lost gold mines.
