(From the publisher):
Eli Canaan is a believer. And, like many, he believes himself to be a principled and moral man. Well, for the most part anyway. But, after a series of missteps, sins, some would say, Eli's life is suddenly and unexpectedly altered forever. A spurned wife, a gypsy, a hex and spiritual intervention may all be at the root of Eli's unexpected, deep and ernest introspection, which is like nothing he has ever experienced before-in "this" world.
God and Jesus, as well as a host of zany characters, help show Eli the pathway to redemption (among other things). During his journey, Eli is entertained by atheists, a renowed psychoanalyst, and one of the greatest joksters in history, Groucho Marx. Eli takes nothing for granted as he is guided through a series of events, and opportunities for learning what ought to be everyone's purpose in life-living the commandments as they were meant to be lived.
An uplifting story of hope and meaning and belief in the goodness that can come by opening one's eyes to the Heavens...
