    Strong Anti-War and Peace Message

    In 'Joshua in a Troubled World,' Father Girzone delivers a strong anti-war and peace message. Elie is a common man who sets the stage for peace in the Middle East. In his latest parable in the Joshua series, the title character's identity is not hidden for long. We learn early on that he is Jesus and teaches us not to wage war. The message of peace on page 85 moved me the most: 'We live in troubled times, times with which people in this country are mostly unfamiliar. Faith in God, and trust in an unseen God seems to many unreasonable. So even those who look upon them selves as people of faith would still rather trust in wars and killing than trust in a loving, caring Father in heaven. But I tell you, do not be afraid to trust. War is never a solution.' It's too bad our current administration did not understand this before going to war in Iraq.

    Tedious and Boring

    I've been a big fan of the Joshua novels,but this was awful. There was no character development, the plot was thin, the dialogue was laborious, and the ending too predictable. I don't know why I suffered through it. DRH
