Editorial Reviews

“With profound intelligence, Buechner’s novel does what the finest, most appealing literature does: It displays and illumines the seemingly unrelated mysteries of human character and ultimate ideas.”
“The Bible’s account of Jacob is a pungent seed found in a tomb. Frederick Buechner has planted it and the result is this beautiful swaying tree of a book.”
“This is an extraordinary novel that demonstrates both the truth of fiction and Buechner’s superb ability to offer it.”
“A masterpiece.”
“One of our most original storytellers.”

    The first time I read this novel, I was in a dry period in my life. God reached into my heart right through the pages. It was one of the few times in my life when I experienced a novel rather than merely reading it. Buechner transform his readers into the heart of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob's story. We get inside their skin and find our own sinfulness and God's grace which greater than all our sins. What an awesome book!
