I couldn't finish Lawhead either. I managed to get through Taliesin/Merlin
and part of Arthur (I think it was the Arthurian element which stopped me
there, I remember enjoying esp. the atlantean scenes). But the Endless Knot,
Paradise War etc - I'm not sure what it was. It wasn't the author's world
view, I don't mind that coming across if its well done (and I'm Christian
anyway so I wasn't going to take offense at Lawhead). It was more that the
books seemed to be missing something.
