HOW HARD CAN IT POSSIBLY BE TO RECOVER A TREASURE THAT’S BEEN MISSING FOR OVER 500 YEARS?
OF COURSE, FLAMES SHOOT OUT THE BOTTOM OF THIS TREASURE, AND PEOPLE WHO TOUCH IT TEND TO DIE, BUT THAT’S NOT GOING TO STOP ELI FROM TRYING.
NEVER MIND THAT HE’S TWELVE YEARS OLD AND A BIT CLUMSY.
Eli lives in ancient Israel and dreams of being a treasure hunter instead of Uncle Shem’s apprentice. Uncle Shem is the kind of man who would tell Jesus that He walked on water the wrong way, so it’s no wonder that Eli can’t please him.
When Eli accidentally breaks Uncle Shem’s latest invention, things couldn’t get any worse, so Eli resolves to find the ultimate treasure, the Ark of the Covenant. Discovering the Ark will convince everyone that his skills would be put to better use finding ancient artifacts and lost cities.
Then Uncle Shem sends him to Jerusalem to deliver a fragile mirror, and Eli knows his chances of success on the 120-mile trek are slim, but he has another reason for seeking the ancient city: to find Jesus. If anyone knows where to find the Ark, it would be the all-knowing Son of God.
Along the way, Eli encounters bandits, tyrants, and traitors before making some unlikely friends who help him find Jesus in the last place he would have looked. Thanks to Jesus, Eli discovers a treasure even more unique and powerful than the Ark.
But does he have what it takes to overcome his worst fears and save the treasure and his friends from their enemies?
Anyone wanting to foster devotion to Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist will want to give this book and keep one for themselves.
It’s the perfect First Holy Communion gift for an advanced reader or for a family to read aloud together.
