The Blood Tears of Jesus pulls the reader into the world of Preacher Rodney Coleman: a bare-bone, basic, 66-books of the Bible minister. He teams up with Marcellus, a resourceful soldier with interesting and mysterious lineage, to take on the fallen angels' plot to rule the Earth Realm. The novel thrills with action that is properly paced and has just the right portion of surprises along the way. Inside the story, Leander Grogan embedded lessons that stir the inquisitive hearts of Bible scholars or any old regular Joe who has questions about the Bible: why certain holidays are celebrated, even the origin of those little silver fish you see on the trunks of vehicles. The book does double duty: it entertains (oh yes! It entertains) but it also educates. And for that, this reader says thank you to Mr. Grogan.
The only thing I didn't enjoy about the novel was how many times Rodney Coleman says that he doesn't understand. In fact, he let's the reader know that he has said it a lot in the novel (that was quite humorous). But I would rather the character giving explanation--whether Archbishop McGuffe, Marcellus or Magistrate--were able to teach without Rodney's reply of not understanding...or at least not so many replies. I saw a similar flaw in William P. Youngs "The Shack" and "Cross Roads." Both as didactic, with a leading character that kept saying he didn't understand. However, that one dislike is not enough to prevent my five star review of "The Blood Tears of Jesus." I am happy I read this novel and I will probably read it again. No spoiler alerts, but all I'll say is this: the angelic introductions!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!!
