Descrição da editora
If you could speak to Christ, what would you say to Him? This new book tells of an encounter with Christ and what one man had to say to Him.
Fydor Dostoevsky, the great Russian writer, wrote of such an encounter in 1879 known as The Grand Inquisitor. Vanderpoel's encounter takes place in the 21st century.
Wynant Vanderpoel has used Dostoevskys The Grand Inquisitor as the starting point for a contemporary spiritual exploration of faith and doubt. He has written afascinating and daring literary fable. Anyone concerned with how to live in the disenchanted world in which we now find ourselves will want to read this book.
Lee Patterson, F.W. Hilles Professor of English, Emeritus,Yale University
The author has taken an old and venerable tale of faith from Dostoevsky and injected it into the modern world of Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins. Be warned: he ispersuasive.
Samuel Sachs, Director Emeritus, The Frick Collection
This story undertakes the imaginative challenge of interweaving elements of a great Russian novel with a fast paced generational tale to set forth questions about modern faith and morality. You cant help but be moved.
John Wilmerding, Professor of American Art, Emeritus, Princeton University
Very interesting, entertaining and relevant.
