No, Daniel Silva is not a Christian, but I have always really enjoyed his books following the fictional life of Gabriel Allon, Israeli spy and art restorer. Now that I rarely read anything but Christian books, I still find Silva’s books to be a breath of fresh air.
In fact, when compared to many so-called “Christian” books, The Fallen Angel looks very good.
There is a lot more spiritual truth in Gabriel’s Mossad-driven plots than there was in several of the books I’ve reviewed lately. Silva was raised Catholic and converted to Judaism. So, he knows about the Creator all the nominally Christian books talk about, though his characters definitely do not believe God exists. I have no idea about Daniel’s faith or possible lack thereof.
This is truly an excellent book. It’s a very complex and constantly exciting plot filled with deep and complicated characters. It’s clean, as moral as the deception of espionage work can be depicted, and I don’t really remember any bad language. I really enjoyed the read. I recommend the book.
