Original novel title: The Testament.
Author: Eric Van Lustbader
Publisher: New York, NY: Tom Doherty Associates, 2006 (hardcover), 2007 (paperback)
Thriller writer Van Lustbader tackles the New Testament of the Bible in what can only be described as yet another Da Vinci Code readalike. According to the dustjacket, "For more than eight hundred years, the Order [of Gnostic Observatines] has preserved an ancient cache of documents, including a long-lost Testament attributed to Christ that could shake Christinaity to its foundations."
