The Gospel of DamascusISBN: 9781933455105
In this eschatological novel that weaves Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions, eight angels prepare Yune Bukhari to be one of the successors to the Disciples of Christ. Guiding the process are golden scrolls that can only be opened at specific dates. The story appears to culminate on Christmas Eve 1999 when Yune, along with his co-disciples, believe Christ will return. Yune is shattered when Christ fails to descend on the White Tower east of Damascus. But 33 years later, he is finally permitted to witness the event he had anticipated for so long.
