I somehow missed that this book was a "supernatural" thriller - a genre I genre I generally avoid reading. Having said that, I have now finished the book and found it to be a satisfying read. I discovered a book that is a combination of
The DaVinci Code
Book of Ruth
The story moves from Nashville, to NY City, Rome, and beyond. With the cooperation of believers from across the denominational spectrum and from around the world, Anna and her associates attempt to decipher a scroll passed down through her family for generations. In the process Anna is forced to evaluate her own faith - finding that she needed to rethink much of what she had learned as a child.
In the midst of her search for the hidden meaning of the scroll, she is presented with one of the clearest presentations of the Gospel that I have seen in a fiction book. Much of it could have been clipped out and used as a pamphlet to share with family or friends.
If excitement, action, and a hint of romance are of interest to you, then The Guardian may be a book for you.
