The Constantine Conspiracy

The constantine Conspiracy, by Gary E. Parker. This story is about Rick Carson, who happens to stumble on a murder and finds that he is now the suspect in this case.  He soon discovers that there is more than what he expects. Corruption from all levels, which leaves his only choice to run, even though he is innocent. He finds some refuge in a police officer Shannon Bridge who comes to his aid after he is wounded, but he isn't sure which side she's playing for.
 This book is very well written and I enjoyed the story. But I did not enjoy the underlying message beneath it. That being that people of other religions being against christianity and conspiring to bring it down by performing "acts" in their name. For far too long the world has viewed other religions with an us vs. them mentality. Which is 100% unbiblical. We are not at war with muslims or their religion. In fact the commandment we recieve is to love our neighbors (and those we consider enemies) Eph. 6:12 says "For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places" So while being a well written book and highly entertaining I can't give this a good rating as I consider it unbiblical.
