Book Review - Crown of Thorns

I finally finished Crown of Thorns by Sigmund Brouwer. It is the second book in a series that I have read. The book is not clear that it is the second in the series. That is why I have now read books two and three before reading book one. Luckily, the books are fairly independent.

This book is sometimes labeled as Christian fiction. But, the amount of Christianity in the book is very minimal. The main character (Nick Barrett) is a Christian. There are a few times he shares his faith with someone or someone asks him if he is following his faith. But, that is about it. It is a mystery fiction more than anything. It is definitely more a story of a cult and the lasting affects of slavery in Charleston, SC than about Christianity. If you are up for a good mystery with lots of pieces to the puzzle, I recommend reading this book.

Now to see if the library has book one...

Seriously, how do you have time to read with all that you do?

I have read THREE books since Nathan was born ... and most of the reading was during my lunch time at work.

I just bought "Living the Cross-Centered Life" by CJ Mahaney. Well, I bought it a couple weeks ago and STILL haven't had a chance to read it.
