A work of speculative fiction. With Judeo-Christian overtones, this novel is set 500 years in the future has Jacob Mindyson, an archaeologist who specializes in the "Old Sciences" of the Twentieth century, translating the secret never-before discovered journal of a Jewish priest Eliezar ben Yaakov ha Kohen, Jesus' genetic father. Jacob's adventures take him from the handsome black goddess rulers of his native Gynocracy, to dalliance with a girl from the Ancient Hypsie cult, to an encounter with the Meta-Technicians (a robot clan in search of knowledge) through to the long buried scrolls whose message he is determined to record and save.
The book is in very good condition. The dustwrapper is a little tatty to the edges and slightly faded to the spine.
