DID SHERLOCK HOLMES BELIEVE IN GOD? Sherlock Holmes is arguably regarded as the most famous detective of all time. More articles, stories, documentaries and news releases have been written about Holmes than any other fictional character in history. One would think that with all that media coverage everything that could possibly be known about Sherlock Holmes had already been revealed. Not quite! Dr. Ambrose delves into a subject that few have dared tread, and unravels a mystery as baffling as any faced by the famed English detective. Did Holmes believe in God? If so, did his faith include a belief in an afterlife, or embrace the theology of a final Day of Judgment? And, apart from just acknowledging the existence of God, is there evidence in his life that Holmes relied on the infinite power of God? These are the questions that are explored in this book. Dr. Ambrose takes the reader on an incredible journey: examining Holmes keen knowledge of the Bible, his thoughts about Darwin's theory of evolution, the three Christian virtues expressed by Holmes' character, and much more. Along the way, he imparts to the reader nuggets of little known facts about the great detective; for instance, did you know that the phrase, "elementary, my dear Watson," was never spoken by Sherlock Holmes? Or that 221 b Baker Street is actually a physical address in London? If Dr. Ambrose's analysis on the spiritual life of Sherlock Holmes wasn't enough, the references included in this volume consist of ten of Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories. Holmes Revealed is an inspirational and provocative read that is guaranteed to challenge your intellect and put a smile on your face.
