Search for the Lost Shipwreck of Paul


In September of 2000, Bob Cornuke flew to Malta. That trip marked the start of nearly two years of research and discovery in search of the lost anchors described in Acts.

The true story of The Lost Shipwreck of Paul reads like a gripping fiction novel, as Cornuke takes readers along with him into the investigation. Using techniques he learned as a police officer and crime scene investigator, he probes each angle of the mystery.

Was St. Paul’s Bay really the site of Paul’s shipwreck? What route did Paul’s boat take, and where would that leave them when they dropped the anchors? What type of boat was used, and what type of anchors would it have had? Would the anchors have decayed over time? What exactly happened on the night of the shipwreck? Cornuke takes you into his life experience to find the answer in The Lost Shipwreck of Paul. Suspense and drama unfold in this riveting, true account that presents one of the most astounding discoveries of the century. Page-by-page, it is history found and history made.

Dove Review

This is a terrific DVD and can only enhance the faith of Bible believers everywhere. Bob Cornuke, a retired police detective, determines to search for the anchors from St. Paul’s shipwreck, as described in the book of Acts. Cornuke is the Founder and President of Bible Archeology Search and Exploration Institute.

The viewer learns that Bob had a shipwreck of his own in Ethiopia at night, which he calls, “a harrowing experience.” He started reading about Paul’s shipwreck and soon strongly desired to solve the mystery of the lost anchors.

In this DVD we follow Bob as he speaks to Maltese fisherman and consults experts such as Dr. Graham Hutt, author of “North American Pilot”, a book on Mediterranean storms. He also speaks with divers who years before brought up four anchors from the spot where Paul’s ship went down. Soon we hear Bob say, regarding what happens next, “It enhanced my faith in a unique way.”

We strongly recommend this DVD for family viewing. In fact, this DVD has it all including a great story, suspense, a pay-off at the end, and is wholesome for the entire family to view together. This one earns five Doves from us, our best rating.
