What if you had the seven most powerful ideas in the world?

For a thousand years rumors spread among the desert peoples that mysterious scrolls containing fantastic secrets had fashioned the Abdali-ud-din into the richest, most powerful trading dynasty in the world.

Men would kill for such knowledge. Indeed, they had killed. And then suddenly, the scrolls simply disappeared.

This is the story of the last holder of the scrolls, an old chief named Zafir. Worried that his life was nearly spent, Zafir chose young Bassam to be his heir to the scrolls. Was Bassam ready? To prove the young man Zafir took him on a long caravan trek with the intent of teaching him the scrolls. Partway into the trip came a deadly surprise. Things changed.

The hidden messages of the scrolls are timeless. The same secrets that gave such riches to the dynasties of old are just as potent today. Learn these cryptic mysteries that Zafir passed to Bassam, and Bassam to his beloved Rasha, and be delightfully surprised how the Seven Secret Scrolls may guide all who possess them on a pleasant journey toward peace and prosperity.

About the Author:

Paul B. Skousen is an author and instructor on the United States Constitution. He received his undergraduate from BYU in Journalism and his Master's degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University. After graduate school Paul worked for President Ronald Reagan in the White House Situation Room.

In addition, Paul was an intelligence officer for the CIA. He received national notoriety when he preserved a large bag of shredded top secret documents, the so-called "smoking gun" from the Iran-Contra Affair, that he sold piecemeal as "shredded secrets from the White House." Paul Harvey and other media outlets covered the unusual story. Paul has extensive experience interviewing political and military leaders in Egypt, Israel and Jordan, including the former prime minister of Jordan, the political advisor to Egypt's President Mubarak, and senior generals in the Israeli military

Paul is the author of six books including The Naked Socialist, Bassam and the Seven Secret Scrolls and Treasures from the Journal of Discourses. He has revised and edited several of his father's books including Fantastic Victory, The Cleansing of America, The Five Thousand Year Leap Glenn Beck Edition, and The Majesty of God's Law. He is currently writing the Biography of W. Cleon Skousen, among other projects, and is a frequent speaker and motivational instructor.

Additionally, Paul has been a columnist for The Daily Caller, and currently teaches communications and journalism at Utah Valley University.

Review:

Paul Skousen could be described as the Ayn Rand of the desert.  He weaves a surprising message into a tapestry of unexpected threads, placing his protagonist in a very different environment than might be anticipated for a story of individual liberty and self-determination. Read it for yourself, give it to your (older) children, better still, give it to your liberal friends; everyone might learn something useful in addition to enjoying a rollicking good story.
--Stefan Bartelski, Host of the "Patriot Come Lately" Radio Show


Paul Skousen shows us he has the gifts of descriptive metaphors and modifiers of all kinds. He makes Bassam and the Seven Secret Scrolls so interesting, so down to earth, that a book one may never have considered reading becomes one which changes one's soul.
--Michael J. Thompson--AML

Book and Audiobook of the Year for 2015
--Izzard Ink Publishing


Audible Hidden Gem August 2015
--Audible.com

This is a beautifully written story given to us as if it was a tale only the most esteemed sages, descendants of eons past, have deemed us worthy enough to pass it on to. Every word commands our attention as not a single one is to be missed or we may lose the meaning of the entire book. The excerpt has an ancient feel to it that leads me to imagine reading it by oil lamp in one of the caves described in the story.
A mystery almost as vexing if not more than the one the author has written. I felt the excerpt to be one with almost magical powers.
--ABNA Manuscript Excerpt Review
