    2. I received a copy off this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed reading this book, however there was so much within the book that I'd probably benefit from reading it a few mote times. The story centers around a bone box, a stone box that early Jews used to rebury their dead. An archaeological discovery of such a box proclaiming to be of Jesus Christ has been unearthed in Turkey by Sophia Altay. Now all Sophia wants is to make known the contents but there are m [...]

    3. I received a free copy of this book from the author, in exchange for my honest review. That fact has not influenced my opinion of the story.“Bone Box” by Jay Amberg is a fascinating tale of greed, personal ambition, and the ages-old question of whether the public’s ‘right to know’ outweighs the risk of inciting public discord. Within these pages of fiction, Amberg presents a scenario not difficult to accept as realistic. Although the instigating discovery could have been almost anythin [...]

    4. What elevates Bone Box from intriguing mystery with an underlying love story, which it definitely is, to a story that resonates with meaning are the relationships the author crafts layer upon layer.These include the relation between archeology and the personal quest to understand one's place in the universe, the relation between cultures that unleashes both destructive and redemptive behaviors, the relation between people linked by circumstance and place, the relation between individuals with th [...]

    5. The Bone Box: Jay AmbergWithin this novel there are many conflicts not just the one faced by archeologist Sophia Altay. Altay finds with the help of her assistants an ossuary that within it has relics and documents that date back to early Christianity and could change our understanding if what is written on these documents is revealed. But, as the story opens Joe Travers is being sent to assess the dig, find out what is really happening there and possibly be told to terminate Sophia’s reign as [...]

    7. Jeanne Pinet I received this Firstreads book as a digital upload from the author. Try to imagine what the religious, political and global reactions would be if Christ's bones were discovered along with 2 scrolls, one written by Christ, one by St. John. To what lengths would men go to to possess these artifacts. Would they want them destroyed, manipulated for evil purposes or shared with the world as a sign of hope? This book makes the reader think. It suggests scenarios, some good, some evil of [...]

    8. This is an enthralling story, along the same vein as Dan Brown's novels. I am always fascinated by stories which involve religious relics, whether real or fictional. This one includes so many conflicts that you might think it would be tough to follow, but that doesn't happen at all. You have cultural conflicts, conflicts between religion and archeology, conflicts between individuals, etc.The chapters are generally short and easy to read, which offers the reader a chance to take a breath between [...]

    9. As a passionate traveler, I particularly enjoyed the author's depiction of the various locations in Turkey (all of which I visited 9 years ago). The descriptions were very evocative and brought back memories of fascinating experiences that I hadn't thought about for some time. It made me want to schedule a return trip!The characters were similarly brought to life and were distinct individuals, not at all predictable, with detailed backgrounds. The plot of the novel was intriguing and suspenseful [...]

    10. A fast read, similar to the Dan Brown books, but without the puzzles. After finding an ossuary at a dig in Turkey, a young archealogist must deal with making decisions about her find, protecting the material while finding a way to make it public. The story follows her as she deals with forces that want to destroy her discovery before it comes to light. Finding someone to trust is at the heart of the problem here, and the one person who does comes to her aide becomes the main character in the sto [...]

    11. Jay Amberg's Bone Box is an up and down thriller that makes the reader question who is trustworthy and who isn't for Joe Travers and Sophia Altay. Taken through breathtaking descriptions of Turkish cities and villages, readers are taken into the setting and shown details of the story through the eyes of Travers, Altay, and Abrahim which all cumulate together to show the whole picture in the last few chapters. A murder mystery thrown in makes the challenges of saving the artifacts along with thei [...]

    12. Well-written, historical and rather eerie at times, Bone Box is definitely creative and original, and certainly worth reading.

    13. Good story! I always enjoy any stories that relate to archaeological digs mixed w/murder! I do like this authors stories; they're well written.

    15. Bone Box by Jay Amberg is about the major archaeological discovery of an ossuary, a box of human remains and a few scrolls. With the suspicion that these remains belong to Jesus of Nazareth and that the scrolls pertain to his teachings, a lot of people are willing to do questionable things to get their hands on the contents. The book revolves around two main characters, Sophia Altay and Joseph Travers. Sophia is the primary archaeologist and the one responsible for the dig site where the bone bo [...]

    16. The premise of finding an ossuary containing the bones of Jesus Christ struck me as a topic too enormous to tackle because of its implications. If proven to be true, how would such a find affect the deep-rooted beliefs of a church founded over two thousand years ago?With such thoughts in mind as I read, my hesitation to learn the author's answers to "what if?" added to the tension inherent in such a novel. The story raises tough questions along with conflicting emotions and opinions.

Markinson, Self-Publishing Review: A fast-paced religious thriller that will make many question not just their religious beliefs, but their personal beliefs as well.…What helps this story hit all the right spots, is Amberg’s ability to bring not just the characters to life, but Turkey as well.

    18. Author Jay Amberg offered me an eversion of his book Bone Box in exchange for an honest review, so here goes!The story is set in a Turkish archaeological dig. Most of the main characters are well developed and complex. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized what the relationship between the main male and female characters would be (ha-ha, no spoiler).The overall mood of the book was maintained throughout, even as characters relocated and interacted with new characters.I can see how fundament [...]

    21. Copy receive from:bookjunkiepromotions/First, I have to confess that I did not anticipate liking this book as much as I did. I can't think of a single thing that I did not like about this book. First, a fantastic plot! An unearthed stone box thought to house the bones of Jesus. I mean, wow! I had no idea about the traditions of stone boxes and I learned this and so many other things that I did not know. Second, an equally fantastic heroine- Sophia Altay. I can't love her more! She was an interes [...]

    22. I received an electronic copy of the book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.This is a character driven story more than anything. The premise is interesting, religious relics found in Turkey and the struggle to control them. I wouldn't call the story religious, however, as it really deals with the characters, rather than the relics and what they could or do mean to the world. The writing is relatively fast paced and very descriptive. At times, I felt too descriptive, where [...]

    23. Ed Sarna, Windy City Reviews: The cast of characters is well developed and nuanced. Our perception of who is good and who is not changes over the course of the book. Just as we think we understand what is going on, the plot twists and we have to question our original assumptions. Along with the fast moving plot and well-defined characters, the locations become another integral part of the story. On one hand, the nicely detailed descriptions of the cities and the countryside made me feel as if I [...]

    24. Review: THE BONE BOX by Jay AmbergAn archaeological excavation in Turkey uncovers an ossuary with documents possibly dating from the first century A.D. If verifiable, these documents could change both religion and history. Now the race begins, either to translate, expose, and publicize; or to literally and figuratively bury the discovery and discredit the archaeologist.
