City of God
Thorndike Press, 2000 - 514 ページ
In his workbook, a New York City novelist records the contents of his teeming brain -- a virtual repository of the predominant ideas and historical disasters of the twentieth century. But now he has a story he thinks will become his next novel: The large brass altar cross from a run-down Episcopal church in lower Manhattan disappeared, then mysteriously reappeared on the roof of the Synagogue for evolutionary Judaism on the Upper West Side. He befriends the church's maverick rector and the synagogue's young female rabbi as they try to learn who committed this strange double act of desecration and why.

Vivid descriptions of life in a Nazi labour camp and of a bomber being shot down and crash landing in World War Two are the highlights of this book. The arcane arguments for the existence of God and faith while interesting may muddy the waters rather than clearing things up. レビュー全文を読む
