Escape from Heaven ~ A new novel by Jerry Marcus and Marion Estelle Gold
Even In Heaven... No one can escape the reality on Earth.
Two men from different eras. Both intensely believing in something
far beyond themselves. When Moses and Jesus meet in Heaven,
they decide to work together for the sake of all humanity.
In this powerful, provocative, unique and insightful novel, Moses and Jesus painstakingly discuss faith, tolerance, religion, and bigotry ~ and the evil committed throughout history in the name of religion. It is a novel where you will meet ordinary people who struggle with good versus evil, politics, friendships, religion, the Holocaust and anti-Semitism. It is about the every-day challenges of life and death, our relationships with God—and all facets of humanity that impact upon the human condition. Moses and Jesus understood the wonders and genius of God. How each individual has the potential to live a life of honest reflection, faith and good works.
Religion, with all its limitations and unbridled power, has never been looked at with more clarity than through the eyes of Marcus and Gold.
