  • Very thought-provoking and engaging
  • It’s not a style one would often see in a fiction book and that uniqueness makes the story all the more special

Spirit Tale Nine: A Miracle Is On Its Way is Book Nine of the ‘Spirit Tale’ series of fables – but you don’t have to be Jewish to appreciate these stories.

Now, one might not expect a story about miracles to be connected to “true freedom” – but all of the Spirit Tales hold wider implications, and that is one of their strengths.

Spirit Tale Nine: A Miracle Is On Its Way is about all kinds of miracles: the miracle of God, life, the spirit, and various forms of survival.

Its prologue and epilogue are perfect introductions and conclusions to the story’s wider meaning, and though Rabbi Joseph’s inclusion of family member ages on every paragraph is somewhat disconcerting at times, the overall story is beautifully done and easy for any reader to digest.

All that’s required is an interest in moral questions, spiritual reflection and a fable format which takes one man’s life and examines its underlying meaning. Readers who love parables, fables, and especially Jewish-based stories will find Spirit Tale Nine: A Miracle Is On Its Way stands well on its own in addition to supporting the series as a whole.
