"Gabriel's Redemption" is a work of historical fiction inspired by a true story. As a battlefield medic in World War II, Gabe knows he could hold the life of any soldier in his army unit in his hands at any moment. So much blood. So many young lives slipping through his hands. Amid these pressures, memories from the past emerge, accusing him, pushing him beyond human limits. Drive becomes compulsion. He struggles with the belief that it's his duty to save every man under his care. As a black man in the 1940s American south, Enoch Baker knows he must keep his distance from white women. But a bored, lonely young wife leads him to her bed. When the two are found, the charge is rape, and a town is in turmoil. His life is in the balance. One man knows the truth about the woman and the rape charge. And he is thousands of miles away, in a war zone, starting to fight his private demons. That man is Gabe. . . who feels himself sinking beneath the weight of too many lives to save. And the question, as he struggles, is-- Will he be able to save anyone? Will he be able to save himself? Gabriel's Redemption weaves together the stories of these two men. . . and their fates.

A Diary of Suffering and Redemption

Economos Antony Gabriel has had several close encounters with death that have affected him deeply. After fifty years of ministry, Father Antony, as he is still known, retired from Montreal St. George Church in 2015 after his own and his wifes health crises. This book is about how he came to grips with his own mortality as a wounded healer by offering comfort and healing to others suffering sickness, sorrow, grief, or bereavement. Needing to make sense of the terror, frustrations, and anger, he has written a vivid portrayal of his battle with cancer and the health-care bureaucracy as he attempted to continue. Readers will see echoes of their struggles with illness or other challenges and find wise counsel in some of his observations and rueful humor in others. The second part of the book is a reflection of what he learned himself and about himself. It is both philosophical and poetic by turn with wisdom distilled into short but powerful phrases that will stay with the reader. Religion is an important part of this book, but the book is not doctrinal. It is rather about a mans struggle to overcome often against himself and, through his faith, find acceptance and healing. Silence is the ultimate harmony in divinity, that is, God. For a brief moment, I enjoyed the ecstasy of this beauty!

«Ti amo, mia Beatrice. E sarò sempre qui per te. Che possa bruciare all'inferno, se ti lascio sola ad affrontare questa prova.» Gabriel e Julia sono spiriti affini. Per lui, niente è più importante di quella giovane così timida e dolce, che già al primo sguardo ha rimarginato le ferite della sua anima, insegnandogli ad amare. Per Julia, il professor Emerson è il sole attorno al quale orbita la sua intera esistenza, la luce che ha dissipato le ombre del passato e che le ha mostrato la strada per iniziare una brillante carriera accademica ad Harvard. È stato quindi naturale unire i loro cuori nel sacro vincolo del matrimonio. E adesso è forte il desiderio di creare una famiglia, mettendo al mondo un bambino. Quell'idea dovrebbe aprirgli le porte del paradiso, invece Gabriel si sente sprofondare negli abissi dell’inferno: come potrà essere un buon padre, lui che da piccolo ha conosciuto soltanto dolore e abbandono? Per non condannare il figlio a un’esistenza priva di affetto, Gabriel deve superare il trauma della propria infanzia. E ha un unico modo per riuscirci: trovare i suoi veri genitori. Tuttavia incamminarsi in quella selva oscura di ricordi sarà molto più pericoloso di quanto lui non avesse immaginato, e Gabriel non rischierà solo di smarrire la «diritta via», ma anche di perdere per sempre la sua adorata Beatrice... Romantico e provocante, «Gabriel's Redemption» ci conduce lungo un sentiero costellato di promesse e tradimenti, speranze e rimpianti, raccontando l'ultimo atto della storia d’amore che ha conquistato milioni di lettori in tutto il mondo.

Yuval Noah Harari ist der Weltstar unter den Historikern. In «Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit» erzählte er vom Aufstieg des Homo Sapiens zum Herrn der Welt. In «Homo Deus» ging es um die Zukunft unserer Spezies. Sein neues Buch schaut auf das Hier und Jetzt und konfrontiert uns mit den drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit. Wie unterscheiden wir Wahrheit und Fiktion im Zeitalter der Fake News? Was sollen wir unseren Kindern beibringen? Wie können wir in unserer unübersichtlichen Welt moralisch handeln? Wie bewahren wir Freiheit und Gleichheit im 21. Jahrhundert? Seit Jahrtausenden hat die Menschheit über den Fragen gebrütet, wer wir sind und was wir mit unserem Leben anfangen sollen. Doch jetzt setzen uns die heraufziehende ökologische Krise, die wachsende Bedrohung durch Massenvernichtungswaffen und der Aufstieg neuer disruptiver Technologien unter Zeitdruck. Bald schon wird irgendjemand darüber entscheiden müssen, wie wir die Macht nutzen, die künstliche Intelligenz und Biotechnologie bereit halten. Dieses Buch will möglichst viele Menschen dazu anregen, sich an den großen Debatten unserer Zeit zu beteiligen, damit die Antworten nicht von den blinden Kräften des Marktes gegeben werden.
