I am a Bible-reading Catholic and I have yet to find anything in his books that would make me question my faith. In fact, I find myself frequently sympathizing with the characters and their struggle to remain faithful to a God they know is there but can't fathom, a God who provides miracles and demands obedience.
I just love how the story is set within the historical frame as we know it (from archaeological evidence). I have been recommending this book to many of my friends. Thoroughly enjoyable read!
The author has an amazing imagination! God blessed him with story-telling talent.
Another great aspect of his nephilim series is how he can bring different research and historical findings and incorporate them into his story, sacrificing the fact of his storyline by giving you how he came about with 'certain' events in his narrative, regardless of whether fact or false, this he does by giving appendices at the end of the book. This ultimately, gives the reader a reason to do their own research.
All in all, the series is entertaining!
Since neither the life of Isaac or Jacob have their own books, I expected the book on Abraham to at least cover up to the sacrifice of his son. Alas, it was not meant to be.
The second grievance is similar to those I have had with the first books but this one has strayed to a much greater degree. Godawa tries to make the marriage bed spiritual but largely fails. It is a shame too because this is something that needs to be done well. However, worse was the graphic portrayal of the sinful sex. Surely, this level of perversion must have happened leading up to the tower of Babel incident and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah as paganism ran free. But I think the story would have been better served if it had been handled with a little more discretion and a little less overt descriptive language.
These two issues mar what otherwise would have been a five-star rating.
