Dramatic, but not at all true to the historical Patrick
I have to admit, I'd always heard that mixed with Lawhead's admirable storytelling skills were his so-called "amazing" research skills, that he had this "gift" of being able to mix history and fiction in a way that brought historical figures to life in a believable fashion. Now we are supposed to believe that one of the most beloved Christian bishops of all time, who was captured as a slave by Irish pirate bandits, taken from his home as a young boy, and went back to those pagans who enslaved him, to bring them the light of Christ, was really a druid priest? I haven't thrown too many books across the room but this one nearly made it.... I wanted to read about SAINT Patrick, not some mythical druid nonsense re-write. Thanks for something to line the bottom of the birdcage with...
