Review of "The Judge" by Randy Singer (formerly "The Cross Examination of Oliver Finney")

Sometimes referred to as the "Christian John Grisham", Randy Singer is one of my faves - and this book did not disappoint.

"The Judge", (formerly published as "The Cross Examination of Oliver Finney") is a very interesting study in human nature and the lengths some will go to attain information.  Judge Oliver Finney is selected by a terminally ill very wealthy man, along with a panel of other "contestants"-all experts from different religions- to take part in a Survivor-like reality show.  They must defend why their religion is correct; and Judge Finney quickly realizes there is more at stake than just bragging rights.  His law clerk, Nikki Moreno and a computer genius named Wellington Farnsworth secretly assist him in solving the mystery by decoding messages from the Bible and a book on apologetics that Judge Finney has written.  As a very important side note, Nikki is led towards faith through her research and the life she has already seen Judge Finney lead.

I really enjoyed this book and can easily recommend it to readers of all genres.
