Here is a book that is written to be provocative It is a faith uestioning read that many might find offensive BUT it is well written and the characterization is captivating Kron knows how to create a character the reader cares about and does well with interior conflictA faith unchallenged is not a faith worth having As an author of devotionals and faith affirming fiction my faith has already been challenged and grounded I don t mind reading a book that uestions the faith However some people of weaker faith will find this read ruffling to their feathers causing resentment and angerI m sorry to say that the theology and Biblical illusions the reader finds in this book might be twisted but the character is in an insane asylum so what would you The Man Without a Face expect I don t understand trashing the author sntire work because the reader doesn t agree with the theologyI felt that the author s uestions have merit The church in my opinion is not uite what Jesus meant for it to be at all The methods and madness of the Priest I do not agree with but the author s handling of the situation is realistic and riveting This was a great book I don t have a lot of time for reading and this one gave me problems because I could never find a good stopping point There was always something lse
