Romanzo finalista al "Premio Urania" della Mondadori Edizione 2012-2013 Barcellona, anno 2026. Il viaggio nel tempo è entrato nelle modalità d'indagine della polizia. I cronoagenti, costretti a operare nel più stretto riserbo, sono tra noi e analizzano le vite di coloro che saranno assassinati in futuro. Uno dei membri della Cronoforza Speciale, nome in codice “Tom Duval”, riceve l'incarico di investigare sul brutale omicidio di un anziano signore di origini italiane: Antonio Palmenti. Duval, però, comprende subito che la vicenda lo coinvolge personalmente, poiché sul luogo del delitto trova la propria fede nuziale. È evidente che qualcuno vuole incastrarlo. Egli inizia così un viaggio a ritroso nel tempo per capire cosa lo lega alla vittima e a tutti i personaggi che vorticano in questa storia dai contorni poco chiari. I retroscena che sta per scoprire cambieranno per sempre la sua esistenza. Un romanzo innovativo, che scorre all'indietro, partendo dal finale e conducendo il lettore in un cammino capovolto. I capitoli si muovono in un'inversione temporale che accompagna il viaggio del protagonista e che rende questo libro qualcosa di unico nel suo genere.

Amongst the ancient papyri of the Dead Sea, a remarkable scroll is discovered. Written in the first century AD, it purports to be the true account of the life of Jesus, as told by Youdas the sicarios - Judas Iscariot: the missing Gospel of Judas. If authentic, it will be one of the most incendiary documents in the history of humankind. The task of proving - or disproving - its validity falls to Father Leo Newman, one of the world's leading experts in Koine, the demotic Greek of the Roman Empire, and a man the newspapers like to call a 'renegade priest'. But as Leo absorbs himself in Judas' testimony, the stories of his own life haunt him. The story of his forbidden yet irresistible love for a married woman. The story of his mother's passionate and tragic affair amidst the war-time ruins of Rome. They are stories of love and betrayal that may threaten his faith just as deeply as the Gospel of Judas... With a dramatic narrative that spans from the Europe of the Second World War to Jerusalem two thousand years after Jesus' birth, THE GOSPEL OF JUDAS is a compelling and erudite thriller.

The Black Hole of Auschwitz brings together Levi’s writings on the Holocaust and his experiences of the concentration camp, as well as those on his own accidental status as a writer and his chosen profession of chemist. In this book Levi rails intelligently and eloquently against what he saw as the ebb of compassion and interest in the Holocaust, and the yearly assault on the veracity and moral weight of the testimonies of its survivors. For Levi, to keep writing and, through writing, to understand why the Holocaust could happen, was nothing less than a safeguard against the loss of a collective memory of the atrocities perpetrated against the Jewish people. This moving book not only reveals the care and conviction with which he wrote about the Holocaust, but also shows the range of Levi’s interests and the skill, thoughtfulness and sensitivity he brought to all his subjects. The consistency and moral force of Levi’s reflections and the clarity and intimacy of his style will make this book appeal to a wide readership, including those who have read and been moved by his masterpiece If This is a Man.

In 1984, Evangelicals for Social Action founder Ron Sider posed the question: "What would happen if we in the Christian church developed a new non-violent peacekeeping force ready to move into violent conflicts and stand peacefully between warring parties. . . Everyone assumes that for the sake of peace it is moral and just for soldiers to get killed by the hundreds of thousands, even millions. Do we not have as much courage and faith as soldiers?" Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) has been trying to answer those questions since 1986. CPT has responded to invitations from grassroots organisers on five continents who are using non-violent strategies to confront systemic oppression. This book provides a glimpse into the mistakes and successes, the triumphs and tragedies, that teams have shared in with local co-workers in various nations. It also continues to pose the question: What would happen if CPT's efforts were multiplied by millions of Christians with a radical commitment to Jesus's non-violent gospel?
