Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A critical success on both sides of the Atlantic, this darkly imaginative novel from Scottish author James Robertson takes a tantalizing trip into the spiritual by way of a haunting paranormal mystery. When Reverend Gideon Mack, a good minister despite his atheism, tumbles into a deep ravine called the Black Jaws, he is presumed dead. Three days later, however, he emerges bruised but alive-and insistent that his rescuer was Satan himself. Against the background of an incredulous world, Mack's disturbing odyssey and the tortuous life that led to it create a mesmerizing meditation on faith, mortality, and the power of the unknown.

Synopsis:

Scottish author Robertson takes a tantalizing trip into the spiritual by way of a haunting paranormal mystery. Rescued from certain death by the devil himself, an atheist preacher recovers his faith only to lose his place in his community.

About the Author

James Robertson is the author of two previous novels published in the U.K., The Fanatic and Joseph Knight. The latter was awarded the two major Scottish literary awards-the Saltire Book of the Year and the Scottish Arts Council Book of the Year.

JMcAvoy, January 31, 2010 (view all comments by JMcAvoy)
Americans need to discover Scottish writer James Robertson. In The Testament of Gideon Mack, we find ourselves within a frame story: the "confession" of the Rev. Gideon Mack along with commentary from other key characters, as we - and the narrator - search for the truth. And the truth is about nothing less than the loftiest of all subjects - the very nature of good and evil, and the existence of God and Satan. Just as all readers will bring with them a different perspective on the ultimate "truth," so do the various characters in this story serve to shift our point of view, keeping the reader guessing and inviting thoughtful introspection. A masterful work by a superb author.
