A “Closet Sherlockian” is what Trisha White Priebe calls the Sherlock mystery lovers in her book, A Sherlock Holmes Devotional - a case by case devotional based on the Sherlock Holmes mysteries written by Arthur Conan Doyle. In a surprising twist, this book contains Sherlock Holmes' case files in a case by case study. Sixty cases are briefly outlined then correlated to an essential spiritual truth and matched up with verses from the Bible. As the reader peruses the book, they are brought back to the Word through the case studies. The reader begins to know God on a more personal basis to develop a closer relationship.

The Sherlock Devotional is a devotional made for the Christian mystery lover. All sixty mysteries are outlined and each has its own essential truth to go with it. Mysteries and Christianity go together you ask? I say yes! This wonderful devotional would work perfectly on a bedside stand or a desk, and as you read through the book you are working on your faith as you walk through the Bible. This devotional gives you a little boost for your devotions. Instead of slogging through your Bible reading, you are focused and solving the mysteries of the Bible; watching for every nuance and clue to solve the ultimate mystery, your faith in God. A Sherlock Devotional would be a great addition to a Bible study. Sherlock Holmes fans, mystery lovers and Bible study teachers will enjoy this book.
