Very good read. Combined from three novellas, this novel was very well written. Learning different doctrinal points through the basis of a book and viewing the learning experience of the different curates was enthralling. While one may say they would never do such a thing as the curates, it's easy to see where they went wrong and how we too could fall into the trap. From liberalism to legalism to orthodox, Giertz certainly captivates his audience.
