And The Beat Goes On

And The Beat Goes On, Tracy Krauss, Strategic Book Publishing, Fiction/Adventure, 2009, 361 pages.

Synopsis: Canadian born archeologist Mark Graham unearths a remarkable discovery while at a dig in the mountains of Zimbabwe – pterodactyl remains and giant human bones buried together. Speculation leads to the possible existence of a mythical race known as ‘Nephilim’, a pre-flood people alleged to have descended from both gods and men.

But skepticism and sabotage delay Mark and his team as the dig site is compromised, putting their discovery – as well as his very life – in grave danger. Deceived and framed by trusted friends and colleagues, Mark struggles to safeguard his findings and protect his reputation in order to unearth the mystery behind the Nephilim.

My thoughts: I haven’t read many fiction books that deal with archaeology, so when I say I thought this was a good book, I don’t have much to compare it to. It deals with Biblical science, and gives arguments both for and against it. The adventure was sufficient for the plot it accompanied, even though I am used to more of it. I didn’t understand the significance of the title of the book, apart from it being a sequel to Play It Again. The characters were good and believable, but not excellent.

Mark’s exploration of God’s world brought him into knowledge of God’s existence. He  considered the possibility, and found it logical. Still, he resisted, as all of us tend to do at times. Eventually, he surrenders himself and experiences joy. It was a good object lesson, in essence. We ought to put aside our human nature’s revulsion of God, and surrender ourselves to His Will.
