The Last Gospel [aka] The Lost Tomb -- The third book in the Jack Howard series. A novel by David Gibbins. '-' Jack Howard está de volta em uma nova aventura. O famoso arqueologista já havia enfrentado situações misteriosas e arriscadas em Atlantis e A cruzada do ouro. Em O último Evangelho, Jack se envolve em mais uma aventura de tirar o fôlego e continua sua incansável busca por respostas que os rumos da história insistem em esconder. Agora Jack segue em busca de pistas na biblioteca destruída de Pompeia, o centro da Roma Antiga, até os lugares sagrados de Jerusalém. Sua missão é encontrar as origens do Cristianismo, mas isso implica a revelação de assuntos que muitas pessoas preferem manter em segredo, e farão de tudo para impedir o acesso ao mistério. O último Evangelho é um dos escritos mais procurados e esclarecedores de todos os tempos, ou talvez um dos mais perigosos da humanidade.
History is full of secrets. Secrets that have remained hidden for thousands of years. And we have no idea what many of them are. We know they're there, under the ground, at the bottom of the ocean, hidden away, just waiting for someone to unlock them." Enter Jack Howard, one of the greatest archaeologists of his day, a man who never stops believing, never gives up hope that out there might be the next big discovery. But when he and his best friend Costas are interrupted during a dive off the coast of Sicily that might possibly reveal the final journey of St. Paul, Jack has no idea what lies in store...Their journey takes them to one of the great lost libraries of antiquity, destroyed by the eruption of Pompeii, into the heart of ancient Rome and the holiest sites of Jerusalem. Their quest? So earthshattering that there are men who would kill anyone and anything in their path to conceal this secret...the secret of the origins of Christianity itself, and of THE LAST GOSPEL.
