Book Review: Foxes in the Vineyard by Michael J. Cooper

I have to confess that I did not know what to make of Foxes in the Vineyard when I first read it. It’s a very complex work that calls for more than one reading. Foxes in the Vineyard is a fast-paced adventure novel with a lot of historical content and a substantial mystical element. The author, Michael J. Cooper describes the work as an allegory.
The action begins with a bit of alternative history, as Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, having aroused Hitler’s suspicion, is relieved of his command. His soldiers are transported to an unknown destination
Five years later, history professor Evan Sinclair receives a telegram, delivered to him by his father’s long-time friend and colleague Mervin Smythe, which purports to be from the U.S consulate in Jerusalem, saying that his father, archeologist Clive Sinclair has been missing for two weeks Smythe insists that Evan go to Jerusalem and insists upon accompanying him. This occurs in April of 1948 when the British mandate in Palestine is about to expire and all hell is about to break loose.
As I said, Foxes in the Vineyard is a complex narrative. It involves Nazis, spiritual descendants of the Templars, a love story and the birth pangs of a nation. The identity of one of the 36 Tsadikim,, who are born in every generation to relieve human suffering on Earth,is revealed. The portal between Earth and Heaven is revealed. We witness appalling betrayal, and we also witness profound loyalty between individuals who would be expected to be bitter enemies. Foxes in the Vineyard is not your ordinary narrative about the Middle East. It is a deeply satisfying experience on many levels.
