From the Books Back Cover:
" In 1986, when drought brougth the level of the Sea of Galilee unusally low, the tow brothers Moshe and Yuval Lufan unearthed the timber frame of an ancient fishing boat. Archaeologist Kurt Raveh was to call the 2,000-year-old boat - of the very type Jesus used to sail the Galilee - the most important discovery of the twentieth century.
Recovery and preservation of the waterlogged "Jesus boat" was a unique challenge, as no other wooden object had ever survived two millennia in sweet water.
Here is the emotional, suspenseful and inspiring story of the boat and those who dedicated fourteen years of their lives to making it available for all the world to see."
