From 221b Baker Street to Reichenbach Falls, from Irene Adler to the evil Dr. Moriarty, from the pipe to the violin, this book investigates the spiritual truths we can discern from this enigmatic fictional character—a brusque, stubborn, and arrogant man who also shows honor, trust, and self-sacrificing friendship. It’s a fascinating read for fans of the series—or those yet to meet the great detective!

This book provides readers with how to look at the literary character of Sherlock Holmes from a Christian perspective, and furthermore, using the art of deduction to find God's everlasting mercies in your life. It's a unique, one-of-a-kind book, which combines two big things in my life: a fictional detective who has stood the test of time and God, who created time itself and everything in it.

Sherlock Holmes, a beloved fictional detective who could always uncover the solution to a crime. Using practical and observational knowledge, he put the pieces together to find the answers. Could this same logic be used to study the Bible? Come along and find out!

First, a full disclosure: I know Trisha White Priebe, and I was the editor who contracted this book with her. BUT…while she was finishing the manuscript, I took a job with another publisher. When A Sherlock Holmes Devotional released, I purchased my own copy because I was eager to see how the whole thing turned out—and I was just as pleased with the book as I’d been with the original proposal. The author clearly knows both the Holmes canon and the Bible, as well as interesting historical details on Arthur Conan Doyle and the world from which he wrote. This devotional highlights characters, events, and themes from the Sherlock Holmes stories, drawing thought-provoking parallels to biblical truths…it is by turns informative, encouraging, and challenging. In the tradition of other devotionals based on “secular” topics (for example, sports, movies, or history), A Sherlock Holmes Devotional uses a beloved topic as a springboard to Christian truth. I enjoyed it tremendously and recommend it to Christian fans of the great detective.
