Interesting science fiction novel that contemplates the existence of God, his, her, or its nature, and whether or not we humans are even capable of truly understanding morality. And it even manages to be an entertaining read!

Now I've seen what all the bluster was about. A good read, but nothing all that impressive sticks out about it. Good for a relaxing break from the world around, but nothing I'd read twice.

The Sign and the Seal

This book was an interesting bit of non-fiction. In short, it detailed the author's search for the lost Ark of the Covenent. In its own way it tied in quite nicely with the “Knights of the Black and White” that I read a while ago, as it tells of clues left by the Templars as to where the ark can be found today.
