He Can See Heaven
J.B. Keats, author
He Can See Heaven is the fast tale of Ellen Shea, an intrepid doctoral candidate on a dangerous search, first for a cache of ancient scrolls, and then for her lost faith. Along the way Ellen learns that the real history of early Christians and their literature has been hiding in plain sight and that like the New Testament, it's been much altered by time and human nature. She interacts with a parade of intriguing characters including two alluring men, sharing their spiritual perspectives while trying to resist their corporal charms. There are tales within the tale, one of the scrolls' hazard-filled journey from their creation in Asia Minor, through Roman, medieval, and modern worlds, and another of the young Hierophant's emergence into the present, culminating in the realization of his startling prophecy.
