Inspired by events in the apocryphal Book of Tobit, from the second century B.C., this is the magical tale of two families brought together, as no mere coincidence, by the devilishly clever archangel Raphael. One is the family of Tobit, a virtuous man who can no longer support his wife and son because of Raguel, the quiet, devoted father of Sarah whose pact with the demon Asmodeus has left her life in tragic shambles.
Assuming human form, Raphael appears before Tabias, Tobit' s devoted son, to help him retrieve his father' s fortune hidden in a faraway city. Together, they embark on a miraculous journey in search of the answers to both families' prayers--a journey that is made challenging and delightful by Rapheal' s artful efficiency.
"On the Road with the Archangel" is a masterful combination of fluid writing, lyrical storytelling, and ancient truth blended with modern wisdom. And beneath it all lies a subtle, glowing meditation on the nature of the Holy.
Hailed as "one of our most original storytellers" ("USA Today"), Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Frederick Buechner has written an extraordinary new novel that shines with the mystery and wonder of the divine. Drawn from the ancient apocryphal Book of Tobit, "On the Roadwith the Archangel" unravels the tale of a eccentric blind father and his somewhat bumbling song who journeys to seek his family' s lost treasure. Narrated by the wry and resourceful archangel Raphael, Buencher' s tale is a pure delight, alive with vivid characters, delightful adventures and wondrous revelations.
