John Staff was living a comfortable life as a professor at the University of the Divine when he began receiving visions. Fired from his position at the university due to rumors that the dean of his department has joined a cult, John decides to examine the visions. Instructed to find three mysterious people to help him fight the forces of evil, John embarks on a journey that will take him across the world to the United Holy States. A noted religious scholar, John encounters various religious scholars-many with ulterior motives and thinly veiled distaste for him. In his struggle to combat the evil invading the world, John attempts to unite the followers of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to aid him in his fight. As natural disasters and the Third World War threaten the peace-and survival-of man, will John be able to unravel the mystery of his identity and end the suffering? Or will the ambassadors of Satan finally defeat organized religion? Both historical and futuristic, Sealed is a fantastic exploration of the various world religions and the faults within them.
Written by Tony Choufati, who admits to questioning religious creeds and concepts, this book offers the reader a truly unique experience. Choufati has obviously done his research, as he quotes the Bible, the Qur'an, and various religious and philosophical scholars throughout the novel. His fresh ideas and wonderful storytelling make Sealed a great book for anyone who questions religion. A fast-paced mystery, this is an excellent first book and a great example of what religious fiction should be. After reading Sealed, you'll be looking forward to Choufati's second book, due out Summer 2003.
Disclaimer: Because of its religious nature, Sealed may arouse anger in the hearts of the faithful, but doesn't quite cross the line into heresy. Apocalyptic, controversial, and positively delightful!
Really STUNNING! Jan 9, 2003
I bought the book on January second and it took me only one day to read it because when I started it I could not put it down. I had to find out the end. I will quote this if I may: 'I have also been critical of the Imams of Islam, Shiites and Sunnites becasue they turned into fanatic fundamentalists thriving from wars, as they are hungry for power' YOU HAVE TO READ IT buy it from this site.
WOW!!! Dec 26, 2002
WOW!!! That's all I can say about this book. So captivating that it makes you wonder. If this book isn't a bestseller, i'll be surprised. I couldnt put it down. Buy this book if you want suspense, intrigue, and if you want something to make you think about religion and the world today...
Nostradamus wrote this book? Dec 21, 2002
I read the book and it felt like reading one of Nostradamus's books. This book though, was much more descriptive than simple predictions. I also liked the religious flavor of the book. Two thumbs up to the author!
