While I was in Nebraska I got a book called “A Skeleton in God’s Closet” by Paul Maier. I had heard of it before, and saw it in the university bookstore while we were visiting my mom, and I needed something to read on my plane trip home, so I got it.
I just finished it last night, and I loved it. It feels similar to “The Davinci Code”, except the author knows something about Christianity and archaeology. I was captivated. It was a real page-turner for me. The story is about an archaeological discovery that threatens to destroy Christianity as a group of scientists struggle to make sense of the findings. I couldn’t wait for school to be over yesterday so I could get back to reading it.
I liked the book for its treatment of faith, the stuff I learned about archaeology (the author is an expert), and the fact that the heroes were smart people. I love it when the heroes are smart people. I feel smart right along with them.
Some people who reviewed it on Amazon didn’t like the dialog or the romantic subplot, but I didn’t feel that way. It’s a great read. I hereby make it an official bradaptation recommendation.
