Prediction: In this decade there will be no more daring, rich, learned, hilarious, profound, adventurous novel than Wilton Barnhardt's Gospel.
It is the story of a quest: of an eccentric, hard-living old Chicago-Irish professor, O'Hanrahan, and an attractive, eager young student, Lucy Dantan, as they careen and comb through Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and America in search of a lost biblical gospel and their own souls. Fueled by O'Hanrahan's determination and Lucy's youth and impetuousness, they ignite a tumultuous chase that has two thousand years of history boiling in its wake.
