Publisher's Summary

Leonardo Da Vinci has a problem.
A serious problem.
The soul-wrenching kind.
The career-killing kind.
He needs to finish a piece for the Pope - but doesn’t know how.

Alas, figuring it out is no trivial task. In fact, nobody ever has. 

Of all the great and grand quests that humans have undertaken, none has been more attempted or elusive than gaining a comprehensive grasp of God. When seeking to know him with the head rather than the heart, to rely on reason rather than faith, the obstacles appear insurmountable. 

If he is all powerful, and we are his children, why do so many suffer so horribly? Why would he punish people who don’t believe in him? Why haven’t we seen or heard from him for thousands of years?

Join Leonardo and the Archangel Gabriel as they survey and surmount these stumbling blocks. Listen in as Gabriel reveals why obvious answers remain obscured. Follow along as he leads Leonardo all the way to an intuitive understanding of the Almighty. 

Set during Da Vinci’s struggle to give God a face in his masterpiece, The Last Supper, Leonardo and Gabriel is no less entertaining than it is educational. Although the framework is historically accurate, the conclusions of this original work are as unpredictable as they are compelling. Engage with an open mind - as Gabriel councils Leonardo to do - and it may even change your life.

Listened to it Twice

Wow! What a thought-provoking book. I've never read anything quite like it. My head is still spinning, but I'm smiling.

It's important to avoid spoilers in discussing this book, as they would rob the reader of something precious. (You have to go through the process to comprehend the punchline.) So I'll start by saying the narrator was perfect. He really drew you into the fascinating dialogue and intriguing historical context.

For pure entertainment value, this book gets 5 of 5.

But it's much more than entertainment. Beyond the compelling characters, what drew me in most was the central point of discussion. The nature of God. Da Vinci raised the kind of questions I've pondered from time to time, but Gabriel supplied answers like nothing I've heard before, and he did so very convincingly. (Da Vinci then bounces them off Machiavelli, which is a hoot.)

I don't know that I agree with everything, but the more I think about it, the less that seems important. Going through the process is what makes this book special. It's a fascinating journey taken from the comfort of your own mind, and one that leaves you with a gift.

It's also funny at times and fast-paced throughout. Trust me when I say you'll want to listen to it twice.
