About this title

Synopsis:

A Book of the Year Award (BOTYA) finalist in 2012, The Gospel of Damascus is an eschatological novel that weaves Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions to tell a story of spiritual discovery. A Damascene man born to a Christian mother and a Muslim father is chosen as one of the successors to the Disciples of Christ, a complex process full of spiritual and sensual experiences which is guided by messages in golden scrolls that only angels can open on specific dates. "Recommended" by US Review of Books and featured as a "reviewer's choice" by MidWest Book Review.

Review:

The Gospel of Damascus is a beautiful book, beautiful in its prose and uplifting in its message. The chapter titled "The Gospel of Damascus" is particularly striking in its message. It is hard to describe what feelings this book invoked in me, I felt as though it was more of an experience than an exercise in reading. I will keep this book along with other books that I refer to time and again when I need some guidance in my life as I, too, "wait for Christ." Joan Scholla, Dunmore, Pennsylvania Omar Imady's The Gospel of Damascus attempts to eradicate this severance between mankind and helps to unite Muslims, Jews, and Christians by connecting the three belief systems together. The author shows tremendous respect for all three religions, and I very much appreciated how he was able to use factual aspects of the three different religions and incorporate them into a fictional story. The Gospel of Damascus was an absolute pleasure to read! Jason Roberts, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada An excellent fictional account of the events leading to the coming of the Christ in Damascus. Transcending religions and denominations, we are drawn into a realm of celestials who lead and guide humans to the Will of the Divine. I simply couldn't put this one down! I give this book Five Stars and a big Thumbs Up! Cynthia Henry, Ronceverte, West Virginia This book is a very well written and entertaining story. On first glance it reads like a fantasy story with its angel-like beings but if you let the story enter your thoughts and actually start to think about it you learn that it is much more. For me it was an eye opener about my approach to religion - and that is something you did not expect from a novel. I just can't say more for it is more to me. Many thanks!
