WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
“Inspired by the Canterbury Tales, this satire finds American Christians facing the reality of the Holy Land. No satiric novel about the Middle East could please all readers, of course, but Reed’s approach is smart and sensitive, even as he gleefully satirizes the relationship between American evangelicals and Israeli hardliners. His prose is sharp, even cutting at times, but there’s nothing parodic about many of his pilgrims’ stories, which take faith seriously.”

WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK:
“Like Vladdy, I am grieved by 1600 years of persecution of the Jews, often led by Christian leaders. This reached its horrible climax in the Holocaust. But it’s happening today on the streets of London and New York and on social media. Our Father God made promises to Abraham. When people talk about Christians replacing Jews as God’s Chosen People, we need to say NO, God doesn’t change His mind.” – Ken Yoder Reed
