Overview Evangelium

Gospel is about an inner journey from scepticism to belief in a higher power. It starts on the day the narrator’s father is diagnosed with cancer.

The narrator looks back over her life, recalling her relationship with a childhood friend, who ended up going off the rails. Gospel contemplates an itinerant life spread over several countries. Is there a journey that can only begin now?

The message of Christianity is explored and held up against a culture in dissolution.
