The Constantine Codex involves readers in an intriguing search for a rare Third Century copy of the New Testament. The search leads to Istanbul where discovery of the codex arouses the passions of zealous Muslims who try to destroy the precious document.
Of particular interest for many readers is a public Christian-Muslim debate that the book stages in Istanbul at the famous Hagia Sophia. It illustrates the challenge that Islam presents to Christianity and how the Christian faith more than meets that challenge.
The Constantine Codex is one of a series of popular novels written by noted historian Dr. Paul L. Maier dealing with archaeology, Christianity, and with opposition to the truth.
