The Constantine Codex by Paul L Maier is an interesting adventure centered around the finding of an old manuscript that could be very important to the Christian World and maybe even change the Bible. It is fascinating at times and slow at other times. There is a part of the book devoted to a debate where Dr. Jon Weber has to defend Christianity against the Islam religion. I thought this part, though important to the book, could have been done in a few less chapters than it was. The overall plot was good but at times it seemed to drag. I did enjoy the book and once it got going into the real mystery and plot finding the codex and then trying to get it to the United States for evaluation before it is revealed to be found or lost forever was fast moving and great. I was surprised at some of the story but that is always a good thing. Maier keeps you guessing and weaves Church history into this book which is very interesting. Overall this is a good book, just needs to move along a little faster. If you enjoy a good mystery, history and Christian history then you will want to read this book.
