The discovery of an ancient corpse sets in motion a chain of events long-prophesied by Native American mystics.

It begins with a burning sunrise ...

Seattle bachelor Peter Barshman's mundane life is shattered by a deadly fire and the arrival of a mysterious young Israeli woman obsessed with a stolen artifact.

At the same time, semi-retired virologist R. K. Brisling M.D. is pulled back into his tragic past and confronted by an epidemic beyond his wildest fears.  

Is there a link between the epidemic, the artifact and the ancient corpse?  Only one man knows, watching from his tower of smoky glass.

EARTH'S ALTAR is a bold reimagining of the biblical story of Noah and the Ark.  If you like the works of Dan Brown or Michael Crichton (or just a story well-told), then jump in and join the desperate race for the truth--and a place on the Ark.  

Will there be a place for you?

"Intelligent, mysterious, beautifully written ..." -- @Megerah111

"Wow.  Best book I ever read on Wattpad ... Two story lines (scientific and historic/religious) running parallel until the end, keeping us guessing throughout.  Strong characters (good and evil) all playing their part.  Is this the real Bible?  Loved it.  Well done." -- @cadewich

That is a very sweet thing to thank the family. I forget how lovely mine are to let me read, write and mostly day dream while they are talking to me!
                              And local transit - I bet you are not travelling London Tube ha ha!
A small suggestion, but should you include the version of the bible you have this from? Mine has is worded differently and it confused me slightly. 🤔
