Authors in the News: Omar Imady Has a New Book
We do not publish fiction, but one of our writers, Omar Imady, writes some pretty terrific novels. His newest is The Gospel of Bethany: Mormon Coffee and Sufi Tea. (The link is to a page that contains all his works.) From the description, it will be a roller coaster experience and emotional wringer of a read. Definitely looking forward to a great bedside book. Recommending it to all, based not only on the description but also on Omar's other work of fiction, The Gospel of Damascus, which is an extraordinary book--and available in four languages: English, French, Spanish, and Arabic.
The Gospel of Damascus is published by Villa Magna; the books are available on Amazon. In addition, Omar has written two works that MSI Press has published:
- When You're Shoved from the Right, Look to Your Left: Metaphors of Islamic Humanism, a delightful book that everyone I know who has read it loves. One Catholic priest uses the stories for his homilies--testimony to the fact that they have significance beyond Islam.
- The Rise and Fall of Muslim Civil Society, which is based upon his doctoral dissertation and is a thoughtful read.
Both of Omar's MSI Press books are available at online retailers (Amazon, B&N, etc.) and in the MSI Press. When ordering through MSI Press, use coupon code FF25 and get a 25% discount.
