The Eyes of Gehazi

ByW. Tod Newman

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
What would happen if with a single horrible decision you instantly exposed yourself and your future generations to debilitation and scorn from your culture? Is recovery ever possible? The Eyes of Gehazi refers to the most important symbolic element of this work. Gehazi was an unimportant, barely noticed figure in the ancient Northern Kingdom of Israel, a small place wedged between great powers and jealous neighbors. He is remembered for two things, however. First, he was the trusted manservant of a great and mysterious prophet who has captured the attention of many across the centuries, and second, he committed a major error that has been passed down throughout history. This novel of historical fiction dips into the inkwell of magical realism in an attempt to explain the scarred humanity of Gehazi to a modern world. Throughout his successes and failures, when we see Gehazi sometimes we see ourselves. Gehazi's eyes were witness to devastating violence and powerful political works, but just as importantly, they saw his own undoing and, we hope, his redemption.
