Item Description...
Overview
Former college roommates Hal Bogikian (newspaper columnist) and Malcolm Edwards (university professor), both atheists, disagree on most major issues. But they remain associates through the efforts of Malcolm's aunt, Phoebe du Pont, a wealthy Christian widow. When du Pont invites the two men and her beautiful assistant, Sally Northaway, on a tourist and archeological trip to Turkey, the four Americans become the target of a terrorist's kidnapping plot in Scimitar's Edge.

Readers will deeply know these memorable characters while also learning about Turkey, the savagery of history, and competing philosophies of life. Along the way, there are razor-sharp thriller sequences and a budding romance as well.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good story.  Feb 1, 2007
I couldn't get past the uneven writing. I would definitely read another novel by Mr. Olasky as the plot was very intriguing, but the writing wasn't consistent and distracted you from the story, making it hard to follow.
 
A Parody of a Novel  Jan 9, 2007
I like Marvin Olasky's columns so well, I was looking forward to his novel, but found it almost a parody of a novel. Well, I read this too long ago and got rid of the book so fast, I can't go back and give specifics, but the characters and scenarios were so unbelieveable I had to laugh. Sorry! I still would read his next novel just to see the improvement I'm sure is coming because at least it wasn't boring and I do have a lot of respect for him.
 
more than a good story  Nov 10, 2006
A good story catches you and carries you along for the ride. This book does a decent job on that score, but it does something else that is less common in fiction. It brings home some basic facts about how the enemy thinks. (And of course you can get a strong dose of the murderous ends of that thinking by making yourself watch "United 93" if at risk of forgetting or needing a reminder.) My thanks to Marvin Olasky.
 
Great Current Events Fiction Without Profanity  Sep 21, 2006
This is a great book, a "page turner" as I call it. I hope we have more such fiction from Mr. Olasky. I also read the magazine World that he is chief editor for. This book is as exciting as some of the other well know current evetns fiction writers like Coonts, Bond, etc., but without the profanity. It isn't far left anti-American like Baldacci's books have become. Other writers with these type books like Olasky are Joel Rosenberg, Oliver North, Mel Odom.
 
Educational, enlightening, entertaining  Aug 8, 2006
As a columnist, Olasky skillfully simplifies the complexities of religion, politics and culture with real life anecdotes. In Scimitar's Edge, he applies his skills to fiction as he illustrates through four Americans (One Christian, three atheists) traveling through Turkey, the complexities of terrorism - and of life in general. Olasky educates and entertains, using contrasts to weave sacred Islamic poetry with American pop culture and unfold truths of life through knitting and chess. Even between brutal acts of stabbings and beheadings, he intersperses comic relief with the likes of cockroaches and carp. As the plot twists and turns, despite all the horrors the travelers endure, they open their hearts to God. And in the end they turn from atheism and begin to find peace with the complexities of their Creator.
