Author of Emma Who Saved My Life and Lookaway, Lookaway

Gospel concerns the search for a lost first-century gospel of the Bible, a document that could shake the foundations of Christianity. Wilton Barnhardt''s narrative races through three continents, nine countries, and dozens of colorful locales, as two characters-shy theological student Lucy Dantan and hard-drinking, disillusioned ex-Jesuit Patrick O''Hanrahan-pursue rumors and clues about the gospel''s whereabouts and contents. In the end, what they discover will challenge and forever change the nature of faith.

An intellectual detective story with the erudition of Umberto Eco and the grand swirling entertainment of a nineteenth-century novel, Gospel is exciting, profound, revent, and terrifically funny.
