After their home was destroyed and their family massacred, Jakob Hochstetler and his sons Joseph and Christian were taken captive, marched into the wilderness, and separated into separate clans and families.

The Chamberlain Key
by Timothy Smith with Bob Hostetler
Publisher: Waterbrook (April 4, 2017)
Book description: Nonfiction
In The Chamberlain Key, noted appraiser and conservator of artifacts and antiquities Timothy Smith manages to unlock doors that have been locked for centuries. Smith’s book is a stunning encryption and coded information in the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Old testament, the Leningrad Codex. Rather than poring over old maps to find buried treasure, Smith uses the data calculation power of computer technology to show how Scripture is layered with meaning and insight—and holds a message of God’s redemptive plan.
