“Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye: The World’s Greatest Detective Tackles the Bible’s Ultimate Mysteries” by Len Bailey

Sherlock Holmes and the Needles EyeIn “Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye: The World’s Greatest Detective Tackles the Bible’s Ultimate Mysteries” (ISBN 9780849964831) by Len Bailey, Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle‘s Sherlock Holmes is hired to uncover ten mysteries in the Bible, but at first he hesitated. In the process, he and Watson go back in time and share their thoughts and findings from a highly intelligent point of view.

“‘The note forecasts, upon acceptance, ten Bible puzzles to be solved. Ten adventures fueled by deep mystery.'”Sherlock Holmes

“‘Puzzles? Isn’t the Bible rather straightforward to be mysterious?'”Dr. John H. Watson

Holmes‘ comment almost sounds as what many of us — doubting Christians — have secretly thought of at least once in our life time. We’ve all wondered at some point or another if the Bible truly is the word of God or some man-made fable.

“‘But your disinterestedness in Scripture is remarkable, Holmes. Will you accept this challenge?'”Dr. John H. Watson

The book’s refreshing, combining fiction (Sherlock Holmes & Dr. John H. Watson) and Biblical historical accounts (or man-made fables used to teach us about God, depending on your secondary belief system attached to the Judeo-Christian faith).

“Honor dictates that one must side with one’s friend in his hour of need. How honorable is it, in a coup d’état…”Sherlock Holmes
