Daniel Luria, the only son of Rabbi Moses Luria, is destined to succeed his father as leader of the community of Orthodox Jews who have made their home in a tiny corner of Brooklyn. He is also destined to break his father's heart.
Deborah Luria, his sister, has been raised to be docile and dutiful-the perfect rabbi's wife. But she, too, will defy her father and venture into a world the patriarch would never dare imagine.
Timothy. Daniel. Deborah. Three lives will be inextricably woven into a fabric of love, loss, and redemption. And for each of them will come the moment that demands an act of defiance-or an act of faith.
Spanning more than a quarter of a century, moving with immediacy from the tough streets of Brooklyn to the ultramodern Brasilia, from Montreal's famous "Main" to an Israeli kibbutz, and radiating with the splendor of two holy cities, Rome and Jerusalem, Erich Segal's "Acts of Faith" is a towering novel of piety, passion, and politics that explores the mysteries of religious faith to penetrate the ultimate mystery of the human heart.
