Not since Miller's "A Canticle for Leibowitz" has a novel, infused with so much religious fervour, tackled the post-nuclear threat.
Written with a profound sense of humour, the author fuses the story of Noah with the plot of the classic science fiction title, The Land That Time Forgot by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
When Israel is awarded a tiny sliver of Antarctica, it turns to former archaeologist and current Torah student, Shlomo Tzadok, to head up an expedition to their new possession.
With Enki the Eskimo, who wears a Star of David under his furs, a multi-ethnic team sets off and survives the dangers of the harsh trek across the mile-thick ice cap.
In a hidden canyon, they find more than just the greatest scientific discovery of all time.
They discover undeniable proof that the Torah had existed for a millennium before Moses came down from Mount Sinai.
This novel combines the suspense of classic science fiction with the laws of the Torah and will be greeted by readers, Jews and non-Jew alike, with delight.
