Kat’s Kommentary

I’m an avid reader and always have been.  In fact, when my parents went to the Parent Teacher meeting with my grade 5 teacher, he told them to get me a public library card, because I had already read everything in the school library.  Now, I’ve been given a great opportunity to read and review some of my favorite things….BOOKS!  This might just be the best job ever!




A.L. Shields is the pseudonym for New York Times
best-selling author Stephen L. Carter
This is his first novel written for a Christian audience, but really,
the book has appeal to anyone.  He’s a
Law Professor at Yale by day and a writer by night and calling. 

"The Church Builder" is the first in a series of thrillers
that I like to say is kind of like “National Treasure” (The movie) meets Frank
Peretti.  A woman is falsely accused of
murder and terrorism and goes on a search to clear her name and find The Pilate
Stone.  In the background The Garden and
The Wilderness are fighting a centuries old battle.  Basically good vs. evil. 

The story is complex with many twists and turns that keep
you guessing.  There is that wonderful
frustration as well as you find the bad guys winning at times and the ending
leaves you hanging.  I can’t wait for the
next installment and where the story goes.

should you get this book? 
Absolutely!  It gets a solid
Weekend Reading Recommendation that will appeal to both guys and girls. 

"The Church Builder" is available at a 15% discount at Scott’s Parable Inspirational Gifts & Books. (In store only) Just give them the promo code, "Kat’s Kommentary".
