Quest for the Nail Prints by Don Furr
Genre: Historical Fiction
Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
From the Back Cover:Three ordinary people are chosen by God for an extraordinary experience, one so incredible that even they have a hard time believing it is real. Through unrelated circumstances, the three travelers find themselves sharing a journey to the Holy Land--when suddenly they are thrust back in time nearly two thousand years, coming face to face with the rugged radical Nazarene known throughout the land as Jesus of Nazareth.
I surprised myself by liking this book. It isn't the sort of thing that I would pick out, but it was well written and enjoyable. It is written as historical fiction set during Christ's time and covers much of the last week of his life. I found this to be an appealing way to review some of the events of that week.
I did feel like the story had flaws. There were a few times that I felt as though the characters were oversimplified or didn't act in a way that seemed true to themselves. Also, I felt that the ending was too predictable and easy. However, there is an interesting twist at the end that leads to the second book.
Overall, I would recommend this book with 3 stars out of 5. It was an intriguing story with engrossing characters.
