Book Review: Gospel (On the Road To) Emmaus

As a book critic, I had the opportunity to read Gospel (On the Road To) Emmaus by Edward Joseph Clemmer. This book is a work of fiction based on the biblical account of Jesus’ resurrection and his appearance to two disciples on the road to Emmaus.

The author has imaginatively retold this story by creating a unique and intriguing plot that takes you on an exciting journey with its characters. The storytelling is engaging and captivating, keeping you hooked till the very end of the book. I found myself immersed in this captivating world where every character was so well-developed that they felt like real individuals.

Throughout the book, Clemmer demonstrates his keen understanding of biblical history and theology. He has skillfully woven in several references to biblical verses that enhance the storyline while providing deeper insight into each character’s development.

One aspect that stood out for me was how Clemmer masterfully integrated themes such as hope, redemption, and faith into his narrative. The story’s overarching message underscores how our expectations are often challenged in life but that persistence and faith can yield rewards beyond our imagination.

However, there were some issues with pacing; at times, the story felt overly slow or repetitive. Also, given its length (656 pages), it may not be accessible for readers who don’t have the time or patience to commit fully to it.

Overall though, I would recommend this book for anyone seeking an enlightening experience through an imaginative retelling of a significant historical event. It offers compelling characters who resonate deeply with readers while providing insight into theological concepts worth exploring more profoundly. With that being said, my score for Gospel (On the Road To) Emmaus by Edward Joseph Clemmer would be a solid 4 out of 5 stars!

Description : Born in Indiana, Dr. Edward J. Clemmer is a social psychologist by profession. He now lives with his Maltese wife, Jane Zammit, and enjoys dual citizenship with Malta. His four sons by a previous marriage continue to live in America. His personal journey with the Lord into this Gospel (on the Road to) Emmaus began in a moment of grace on 12th September 2003, as Ed was on his way to the priest. The context for this initiation was the Feast of Exultation of Holy Cross (14th September), as the source of every grace is derived from the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. The gospel is explained for us as the author and reader journey with the Lord as potential disciples. Our journey begins at Bethany near the Jordan with John the Baptist preaching and baptizing. Part 1 continues up to the Transfiguration of Jesus. Volume One reaches its climax before the Lords final journey to Jerusalem, when Jesus returns to Bethany where the Baptist had preached. Volume Two resumes with the Lords healing and preaching at Bethany near the Jordan. Part 2 concludes in Bethany near Jerusalem with the Lords dinner celebration with Lazarus, after Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead. This celebration anticipates the Lords death and resurrection, and ours in Christ. Part 3 takes up the Grand Liturgy of the Lords New Creation, with Holy Week. The book initially concludes with a retrospective of the incarnation, of Jesus as God-with-us, and with the parallel coming of the Spirit at Pentecost. Then, in the Part 4 conclusion of this gospel, our post-Emmaus journey with the risen Lord returns to our post-Pentecost life in the Holy Spirit. The authors seven-year personal journey through this Gospel Emmaus ends in 2010 with the Feast of Sukkot, just as when the Lord also had anticipated the Holy Spirit. But the Lord provides us with his own conclusion: although he had healed ten lepers as they were on their way to the priest, only one had returned to give thanks....
