Order of Thaddeus

Holy Shroud

Book 1

An ancient threat. A sacred relic. A religious belief that hangs in the balance.

Silas Grey—ex-Army Ranger, professor of religious studies, and leading relics expert—is on the verge of rocking the religious and nonreligious alike with scientific proof of the Church’s central belief: Jesus Christ’s resurrection. But a series of suspicious deaths and devastating attacks not only threaten Silas’s shocking announcement and those close to him. They are a sign of an even greater threat reemerging from the shadows.

Coming to his aid is the Order of Thaddeus, a religious order that has been battling for the very survival of the Church since its birth. Soon it is clear that an ancient cultic enemy has risen to destroy the Christian faith—beginning with its most sacred relic and teaching. Spanning the globe from Washington to Paris to Jerusalem, Silas and the Order combine forces to plunge into a desperate mission for the very survival of the Church and all it holds dear.

Can they preserve the memory of its central belief before its archenemy erases it forever?

Holy Shroud is the first book in the groundbreaking Order of Thaddeus action-adventure thriller series combining the familiar conspiracy suspense of Dan Brown with the special-ops thrill of James Rollins, wrapped in the historical insight of Steve Berry and inspiration of Ted Dekker.

Embark on this explosively inventive adventure by emerging author J. A. Bouma, straddling thrill and thought, faith and doubt—a ride people are saying is so captivating and inspiring “you won’t want to put it down!”
