The Inquisitor’s Tale

This month’s selection is a work of fiction called “The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog” by Adam Gidwitz. It is a story of 4 unlikely companions and how they learn to be tools in God’s hands as they overcome social, political, and religious barriers. I like how it shows no matter who we are, where we come from, or anything else – God can use us to bless others’ lives.  It is somewhat a light read, since it is meant for young adults, but it addresses ideas that we all deal with like why do bad things happen to good people, the reason for life, and the death of loved ones. I really enjoyed how the author was able to treat these deep thoughts with respect, but humor as well. The Mt Pleasant Public Library has a copy in its children’s section and I suggest everyone read it and make their own judgments.
