"Bears on the Road to Damascus" presents a mad hodgepodge of the real and the fantastic, a literary buffet designed to please several palates.
In this collection of short stories and essays, often macabre and always touching, strange tales of terror, love, absurdity, violence, loss, and conviction await. Just when things may seem a bit bleak, charming folk tales emerge to inspire and delight. The title story tracks a convoluted murder mystery in the beach town of Santa Roma, a strange place where the ocean hints at favors-but makes no promises.
This collection contains a first-person account of occupying a campus administration building in protest along with hilarious, satirical news articles; a long-lost script of Sarah Palin's Alaska; and a heartfelt essay examining our place in history, and the path forward.
With a little something for everyone, "Bears on the Road to Damascus" is an indescribable and peculiar adventure into pure imagination.

"Despite the current negative image of Islam in Europe there has been a steady growth of converts to Islam over the past few decades. British converts are a highly diverse group, with different social, economic and educational backgrounds. Recently this group has grown in confidence and become increasingly active in influencing positive Islamic discourse in Britain. The book sheds light on the intellectual and spiritual contributions of some of the prominent figures of this group of new Muslims, and assesses their efforts in shaping Islam in British society; including: Martin Lings, Gai Eaton, Tim Winter and Hamza Yusuf. The research investigates the potential benefit new Muslims can bring to bridge the gap between Muslim communities and wider British society, thus helping in the process of building mutual trust, greater cooperation and positive understanding among all parties in Britain. The work will help readers to become aware of the evolution of a British Islam that is more open, rooted in British values and spiritual traditions, and forms a part of the continually changing British religious landscape.
