What are you reading? The People of the Book - III

     In Geraldine Brook's The People of the Book, we meet the perfidious Christians of the Spanish Inquisition.  A Jew converts to Christianity and then the Spanish Inquisition does not think that he is Christian enough and tortures him - not just mental torture, but physical torture.  Thus, the kind Christians are lesbians, and the orthodox Christians are torturers.  Geraldine Brooks never portrays Christians in a positive light.
