Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye is a dream come true for readers who are passionate about the Bible and a Sherlock Holmes fan.
The first sentence draws the reader immediately into the world of Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr Watson. Sherlock Holmes hands Dr Watson a calling card from a client: “The note forecasts, upon acceptance, ten Bible puzzles to be solved. Ten adventures fuelled by deep mystery.”
“Puzzles? Isn’t the Bible rather straightforward to be mysterious?”
Dr Watson asks Sherlock Holmes, “But your disinterestedness in Scripture is remarkable, Holmes. Will you accept this challenge?”
I am delighted to announce that Sherlock Holmes accepts the challenge and thus gives us, the readers, an opportunity to investigate these Bible mysteries with him. Have you ever wished you could go back to Bible times and see for yourself what happened? Imagine being there when Jesus writes in the sand, or when David slays Goliath. Have you ever wondered why David picked up five stones instead of only one? Have you wondered why Jesus delayed and arrived four days after Lazarus was already dead? These are some of the mysteries Sherlock Holmes sets out to solve.
Len Bailey has done his research. He presents the investigations into the Bible mysteries with typical Sherlock Holmes flair and the rich conversations between Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. At the same time the truth of the Bible is displayed. It is phenomenal how Len Bailey combines the two and stays true to both.
I recommend Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye to all Bible lovers and Sherlock Holmes fans, and of course to all mystery lovers.
