“Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye: The World’s Greatest Detective Tackles the Bible’s Ultimate Mysteries”

August 5, 2013

“Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye: The World’s Greatest Detective Tackles the Bible’s Ultimate Mysteries” by Len Bailey is a great read for anyone who loves the Bible and enjoys a good mystery.

Have you ever wondered why David chose five stones – even though he only needed one? What did Jesus write in the dirt while those who had come to stone the woman caught in adultery dropped their stones and walked away? Or why they left so quietly? What was the significance of Jesus letting Lazarus die, only to go and raise him from the dead?

This book explores the evidence found in the scriptures for these answers and several more. Of course, in most cases the answer is speculative, but the evidence considered is well researched and brings together much scripture to develop the explanation given by the world’s most famous literary detective.

The book is well written and stays true to the character of Holmes, Dr. Watson, and even Mrs. Hudson. The “Needle’s Eye” is a time machine which takes the crew back to various points in Biblical history to explore the questions and then chronicles the quest for the explanation.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and a great book.
