Discontent is the second book in the Two Images of God series by Brian P. Sheets, a wonderful meld of terrorist and political thriller with monumental religious conflict. I was thrilled when I read the first book in this series, and in this new installment, the author takes the game even higher. The story begins with a moment of crisis, a bombing that leaves many people dead and others wounded, and quickly moves on to explore the dynamics of geopolitical and religious conflict, featuring a cast of powerful and well-developed characters. This book explores the conflict between the Western Alliance and the Islamic forces, and readers also get a clear sense of the differences between Christianity and Islam and what political and religious fanaticism can do to a world like ours.
This book tells a modern story with ancient beginnings, a conflict that stares the world defiantly in the face, and the story can be read as a powerful indictment of the mindlessness that has been behind religious fanaticism. But what is very interesting about the writing is the way that themes are integrated into it. The author offers, alongside the gripping story, a strong message of hope — dialogue and mutual respect are values that we need to make the world better and more peaceful. But can people who feel hurt and cheated accept sitting at the dialogue table? Two Images of God: Discontent is filled with relevant historical references and readers not only become witnesses to global terror, but get a great understanding of man’s inhumanity to man. It’s a skillfully written book with great philosophical underpinnings and a message that needs to be heard.
