Synopsis: The Case For the Jordan Lead Codices presents a series of essays by eminent scholars underlining the case for proper analysis and restoration of the codices back to Jordan. For the first time, a very thorough analysis of the metal and its origins is argued by a senior analyst in the private sector.

David Elkington provides a brief account of the discovery. Added to this is a groundbreaking article by Dr Margaret Barker placing the codices in their proper historical and theological context, arguing for their authenticity and the need for further research. Her case is underscored by Prof Philip Davies, the man who was prominent in breaking the embargo on the Dead Sea Scrolls in the early 1990s. An essay by Dr Keith Hearne, one of the world's foremost psychologists, explores the effect of unscrupulous blogging on the delivery of fact and context in history. He discusses the case for religious ‘shock’ in the light of the implications of the discovery.

Jennifer Elkington discusses the effect of the Thoneman affair in the context of proper academic behaviour whilst revealing the fact that very few individuals have had, or asked for access to, proper samples and analysis of the codices.

From the Inside Flap: Arguably the most important religious discovery of all time, the Jordan Lead Codices are considered by many to be more significant in the history of the Christian Church than the Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic Gospels.Much has been going on behind the scenes to try to prevent the publication of any related analytical material.  News of the discovery of the codices was suppressed in Jordan in early 2013. Academics refused to acknowlege both the authors and their efforts to rationalize and analyze the hoard; they even prevented excavation of the cave site in which the codices were found. Furthermore, bloggers and scholars with vested interests aided this suppression by seeking to discredit the discovery.The Case for the Jordan Lead Codices brings together for the first academic papers to be written abouth this ancient find.  In Discovering the Lead Codices, David Elkington provides a first-hand account of the uncovering of the hoard.  Following this is Forgery and the Bible by Professor Philip Davies, who was prominent in breaking the embargo on the Dead Sea Scrolls in the early 1990s.  A groundbreaking article by Dr. Margaret Barker, Those Codices, places the artefacts in their proper historical and theological contexts, making the case for their authenticity as well as the necessity for further research.  A specialist Chartered Engineer in the private sector underscores Barker's argument in an extensive paper, Summary of Technical Analysis of the Jordan Codices, which points to the codices being the earliest Christian texts ever discovered.  An essay by Dr Keith Hearne explores the effect of unscrupulous blogging upon the delivery of fact and context in history in Encounters with the Cyber Commentariat. And finally, in A Right to Reply, Jennifer Elkington discusses the 'Thonemann Affair' (in which Oxford lecturer Peter Thonemann declared that 'the material had been faked') within the framework of proper academic behaviour.  Elkington also reveals the fact that very few individuals have had, or have asked for, access to proper samples and analyses of the codices. This is underlined by further background material describing the activities of certain players in the field.
