I am at a loss for words. How can words even begin to describe the breathtaking language in the story that Robert Jones Jr. has gifted us with his debut novel, The Prophets? How can I begin to explain how he achieves a feat so marvelous, it almost seems impossible? Well, that's the key word: almost. From his innovative restructuring of the Bible through the lens of America's history with slavery to characters that leap off the page with colorful grace and dignity, Robert Jones Jr. masterfully weaves a narrative that serves as a warning from the past, a prophecy for the future, and a testament to the present. His writing defies all Great American Novels that have come before, and in doing so, becomes one of the Greatest I've ever had the pleasure of reading. I can't wait for everyone to be as spellbound by this book as I am; it will stay with me forever. --Gage
