stmartins304St. Martin’s Press has inked a deal with television producers David Gibson and Michael McKinley to publish The Jesus Code, a companion guide to CNN’s TV series.

The book will come out next spring in time for the launch of the series. Like the show, the book will be a forensic and archaeological exploration of the Bible. The content will focus on six artifacts from the life and times of Jesus.

Check it out: “The Jesus Code book will explore more deeply the fascinating debates, controversial figures and forensic evidence which light the path of what we really know about Jesus and his world. Beyond the faithful, the book—like the series– will appeal also to the skeptical and curious readers of history and archaeology, as it takes viewers of the primetime TV series deeper into the story.”
