I have not been reading much lately due to some family concerns, but I did recently begin to read Knights of the Black and White by Jack Whyte. The book is the first in a trilogy on the Templar Knights.
Unfortunately, I can’t give you a review of the book because I stopped about sixty pages into it. I stopped because I can’t agree on what the author is saying through his characters. The one character makes several claims which are completely false: that the apostle Paul was a gentile, not a Jew and that Jesus was not the Son of God in the flesh. At that point, I stopped reading and could not go on in good conscience. I know that this is fiction, but I can’t stomach even a fictional questioning of the beliefs that I know are true.
Before coming to this realization, I was getting a little sick of the book anyway because it was long on thought and short on action. In fact, in some parts, I was downright bored.
In short, I do not recommend this book at all.
