"A stunning vision of metaphysics and faith, cosmology and spiritual emptiness, the rational mind and messianic longing... sparkles with Doctorow's rich language and ideas." Wall Street Journal

Book Description Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. Repr.. Language: English . Brand New Book. CITY OF GOD begins in mystery: the large brass cross behind the altar of St. Timothy s Episcopal Church in lower Manhattan has disappeared . and even more mysteriously reappeared on the roof of the Synagogue for Evolutionary Judaism on the Upper West Side. The church s maverick rector and young rabbinical couple who lead the synagogue set about attempting to learn who the vandals are who have committed this strange double act of desecration and to what purpose, but their joint clerical investigation only deepens the mystery. A writer alerted to the story by a newspaper article befriends the priest and the rabbis and find that their struggles with their respective traditions are relevant to the case. In fact, as the narrative advances and the story broadens, more and more people are implicated in what may be the elusive prophecy of a new American culture. Daringly poised at the junction of the sacred and the profane, the book opens into a multi-voiced narrative that incorporates the monumental historical events and predominating ideas of our age.
