really liked it
Read in September, 2011

If you want to know all about the history of how churches are built, this one's for you. There's a lot of plodding detail about it. It's fun seeing the fictional characters at the center of major historical events though. As far as fiction and stories go, this one was pretty good. There were a lot of twists and turns in the plot and I stayed up late a few nights to find out how a twist panned out. But the end was annoying. I mean the last page, specifically. Like some preachy commentary rather than a satisfying end to the narrative. I think the last chapter could have been skipped from the book. I'm looking forward to reading the next book!
