it was amazing

I would have never dreamed that I'd rank a Catholic novel (especially one that gives high praise to Ronald Reagan)as my all-time favorite Christian fiction book, but The Third Testament is amazing. Much of it is not fiction at all, but rather a select history of Christianity from a Catholic perspective. It is not a dry academic text book history, but a fascinating history of martyrs, saints, holy apparitions, religious military conflicts, Evil Empires, and inexplicable miracles. As much as I enjoyed the historical aspects of the novel, I found the fictional story of Fred Sankt and the miracle he experiences to be the best part of the book. I particularly appreciated that the author made it clear that there was a MIRACULOUS event, but that the event could have also been logically explained by non-divine interventions. In my opinion this kept the story in line with the modern world Christian experience.
