However, recently David began to be plagued by disturbing recurring dreams about a bearded man. In addition, hes started to notice that, for reasons he cant explain, hes acquiring enhanced mental and sensory abilities.Meanwhile, archaeologist Arthur MacKnight has been tracking and trying to document large-scale, strange, and unexplained natural events that have occurred in various parts of Europe and Africa over the past few decades. He thinks these events might be related somehow to an astounding discovery he made in the tomb of a first-century Greek inventor. Knowing full well its the find of a lifetime, he wants to wait until he understands how it ties in with the miracle-like events hes been tracking before sharing it with the rest of the world. However, his assistant, Abdul-Samad Barrak, a devout Maronite Christian, disagrees. He strongly feels that such an earth-shaking discovery must be shared with the rest of humanity right away.With the help of Barrak, Welles and Stuart learn about the tomb and its incredible contents. And they are soon struggling to find the thread that connects that find with some fascinating predictions made by an obscure seventeenth-century author. As they try to solve this mystery, they are forced to tackle profound questions of faith, reason, and the very destiny of humanity. Weaving together artifacts and information from both past and present, all involved race to piece together the cosmic puzzle before the human race is devastated by a long-predicted, shattering final event.
