Item Description...
Overview
In the midst of retirement, Sherlock Holmes is lured into what he believes to
be a simple missing-person case. While investigating his new case, an apparent
miracle saves his life and causes him to begin to question his own world-view. His
client, the lovely and devout Miss Elizabeth Hackberry, off ers him an explanation
for the life-saving miracle?an explanation that challenges all that he knows and
believes.
In his attempt to prove or disprove Miss Hackberry?s belief that God was the One
who saved his life, Holmes reaches the conclusion that he must personally investigate
the most controversial, ancient mystery of all time?the death and resurrection
of Jesus Christ.
As a result, Holmes and Dr. Watson set out on a dangerous journey to Jerusalem.
Along the way they face imprisonment, slavery, starvation, sheiks, and evil spiritual
practitioners.

An Opened Grave most likely will fi nd its way into the hands of doubting friends
and family members of the Christian audience. The story draws us into an ongoing
debate between Homes and Watson as they attempt to rule out the impossible,
and leave us only with the Truth. Though not intended to be a treatise on
apologetics or doctrine, An Opened Grave credibly and respectfully addresses most
of the popular and philosophical objections to belief that are held today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Poorly written  Aug 13, 2008
This a not a true Sherlock Holmes mystery, It is a poor way of pushing right wing Christian beliefs,
 
I'd have given it no stars if possible  Jul 20, 2008
Sherlock Holmes is more real to me than "Jesus Christ" is. There is no historic proof of Jesus' existence. Zero.
 
The best religious SH fic I've read  Jan 19, 2008
I was skeptical about this story being too cliche, but James has done a marvelous job of barely toeing the line between logic and imagination.

I mean, it's only logical that the greatest detective in history should tackle the greatest mystery of them all - the story of Christ.

This is not strictly a Sherlock Holmes story, nor is it a religious pamphlet - it is a well-written debate between science and religion, and it deserves respect for its clarity and poignancy.

I would definitely recommend it to any Holmes fan or any Christian.

Beware of duplicate books  Jul 30, 2007
This is a pretty good story, but it is the exact same book as L. Frank James' "A Study in Truth." Buyer beware!!!
 
An Opened Surprise!  Jul 4, 2007
When I picked up this book, I was prepared to be dissapointed. Sherlock Holmes meets salvation? What?! What kind of cheesmo blather would this bring? Being a Christian, I was worried that Christian commercialism would reduce the great detective to a shallow, watered-down flake.
But no! The game was quite afoot! I was pleasantly surprised by the book's creative and truthful combination. I was a bit skeptical about the time-traveling, but I forgave it as creative liscense. The adventure theme of the book was quite entertaining, and I was overjoyed when the Sherlock Holmes bowed his knee before Jesus. (Kind of gave me the shivers!)
Altogether, I was not disappointed. I did think that both Watson and Holmes callled each other "my dear fellow" a lot more than they did in the orignal Sherlock adventures, but...oh well. Just a little peeve. Not enough to make me lower the rating to 4 stars.
