Virginia Institute Press Announces The November 16, 2016 Publication Of Omar Imady's Novel The Gospel Of Damascus In Four Languages

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Nov. 16, 2016 - PRLog -- Giovanni Donatelli, President, and Rocío Txabarriaga, Vice President and Chief Editor, announced today the publication by Virginia Institute Press of "The Gospel of Damascus" in its second English edition, as well as Arabic (Standard), French (European) and Spanish (Latin American) translations. A Book of the Year Award (BOTYA) finalist in 2012, "The Gospel of Damascus" is an eschatological novel that weaves Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions to tell a story of spiritual discovery. The novel has been "Recommended" by the US Review of Books and featured as a "Reviewer's choice" by MidWest Book Review.

Rocío Txabarriaga said: "Omar Imady has crafted a beautifully-imagined story of a Damascene man born to a Christian mother and a Muslim father who is selected to be a successor of Christ's disciples on earth. The sometimes-mischievous interventions of angels add to a delightful yet compelling tale of spiritual struggle and triumph. From the moment I read the first English edition, I knew this book should be enjoyed by readers the world over. This first set of translated versions has the potential to captivate over 400 million book lovers."

About the author:

In addition to being a poet and a novelist, Omar Imady is a senior fellow at the Centre for Syrian Studies at the University of St. Andrews, and regularly writes on Islamic spirituality and reform.
