Angels & Demons

Today I finished reading Dan Brown's Angels and Demons. I remember watching the Dead Sea Scrolls more than seven years ago. For two months, I have been thinking about my religion Christianity. I started to doubt about Divinity. I have questioned the Catholic Church's teachings and advocate. For two months, my soul was searching for answers. What if all that was discovered on the Dead Sea Scrolls were true? What if there was no actual miracle perfomed during Jesus' time? What if what I believe right now are pure lies? I have been thinking all the possible 'what ifs' that time. Through days of reflection, my faith was regained and sustained. Today, my faith was tested again but this time I had the wisdom to understand the unfathomable. I see beyond what my eyes can see. I go farther where my feet can bring me. I love what I am feeling right now. At ease, at peace.

Dan Brown for me is such a great novelist. All things described in the book are factual except for the character itself. That's what makes it interesting. It has brought me to places I have never been. I have travelled through this book. I love this book and I am looking forward to reading his other works as well.
