I need to preface this by admitting my bias. I do not like reading spiritual fiction and/or Christian fiction. I like reading religious history, but not fiction. That being said, I made the mistake of reading the afterword by the author of this book and now I'm having problems with the entire story. If I had not read the afterword in which the author makes it perfectly clear she's a Christian, would I have ever picked out Christian theology in the factions (especially Abnegation)? I find it ironic that Abnegation and Erudition are the two that start the war. I'm getting too wrapped up in authorial intent here and have lost a little bit of enjoyment of the book. I wish I could un-read that. I reread Divergent in anticipation of the last in the series, so I'm hoping I can overcome my bias and enjoy the books for what they are-darn good storytelling.
