Review - God's Lions

this a re-post due to a blogger meltdown....

Title: God's Lions
Author: John Lyman

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Summoned to Rome by an old friend, a Jesuit scholar finds himself using a code discovered in the Bible to find an ancient, hidden chapel in the catacombs under the city. When a rogue force of Vatican security officials are alerted to his discovery, the priest flees to the Holy Land with a clue ... a clue that will lead him and a team of Israeli Christians to a much larger secret in the middle of the barren Negev Desert.Meticulously researched and drawing on scientific fact, John Lyman's intriguing story takes us into the world of scholars, archaeologists, code-breakers, and intelligence specialists who have discovered a prophetic code hidden within the Old Testament that authenticates the Bible as a book of supernatural origin and points to a divine plan. This gripping novel is truly a thought-provoking and action-packed thriller with implications for our future.

My Review:
I received an autographed copy of the novel. All I can say is that it was Absolutely Amazing. I loved everything about this novel! It was a fast-paced thrill ride that made me hold my breath til the end. Phenomenal. I think what I enjoyed most about this novel was it seemed that a lot of research was put into the writing. Also I liked how science and religion were mixed together. I loved all of the characters, and was super shocked and on the edge of my seat towards the end of the book. I can not wait for a sequel!!! Great Job Mr. Lyman! EPIC.

My Rating:
An Amazing Wedding Cake

I just love the pictures you take with the books you review :) So cute!
I never heard about this novel before, but you got me curious. I just recently finished reading a great murder mystery and it awesome, too, so I'm thinking maybe I should read God's Lions next? :)

Thanks for the review!
