Descrizione

The fiction novel Apprentices of the Word reveals, in an alert and troubling rhythm, the crucial events of the world caught in a unique and ineffable vision. Making a thorough examination of the three and a half years during which Messiah fulfilled His mission and the summary of the Evangels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John, the author notices that a number of Jesus’s deeds are missing from the accounts of the Evangels; John himself acknowledges these omissions in his Gospel in Chapter 21:25.

Armed with a mad courage, M. M. Loviste makes the most difficult and risky decision of his life: to present in a fiction novel other events from the last years of Jesus’s life. In fact, Jesus becomes the echo of the author’s faith, a lively image of his consciousness translated into words having the value of a message. The novel’s author does not pose as a prophet, but confesses his moments of revelation, also giving a matching explanation to Dan Brown’s controversial The Da Vinci Code. M. M. Loviste’s novel goes on the edge, and the main merit of the writer is that he manages to maintain a balance, neither advocating one side or the other, nor falling into the trap of the derisory. In fact, these happenings may actually have occurred.
The author pictures Jesus in various situations and illustrations which do not distort the sacred image, but, on the contrary, portray that image in its genuine radiance. Jesus, the center of the seen and unseen worlds, is so thoroughly a human being in M. M. Loviste’s description that the people who encounter Him are convinced that He is a MAN, and not the Son of God. But the nature, the nobility, and the generosity of Messiah make people who knew Him directly confess the Son of Man as the Son of God. In Apprentices of the Word, the impenetrable and encrypted words of the four Evangels acquire meaning; great questions of the world find answers; movement is absorbed in entities; becoming gets a space of its own; and lucidity re-orders everything in primordial patterns of endless simplicity and grandeur of the existence.

The message of the book shouts that Christ is to be found not only in shining, glamorous palaces or majestic places. He is everywhere, in unexpected places, places of deep sorrow, mockery, and insult. Step by step, the reader discovers the great personalities of the world involved in surprising situations, searching for the Lord’s commandments, living together with the characters themselves that they created, all animated by the desire to become apprentices of the Word.

The story is overwhelming, the suspense is binding, and the reader becomes the prisoner of a life-and-death fight between good and evil. The stake of the conflict is man (the reader), to whom God gives the freedom of choice.

Informazioni sull'autore

M.M. Loviste is born in 1956 in Boisoara, Tara Lovistei. After graduating from the Panait Donici Engineering Military Institute in 1979, he works as a sapper leader until 1989, when he is discharged. Since 1994, he has worked for a radio station, and since 1995, for a television channel, where he makes short movies, documentaries, news reports, television investigations, live transmissions, and live shows. From 1996 until 2008, he is the General Manager of the Etalon television station, during which time this station is recognized at national and international levels, especially in the field of short movies. Loviste attends the “Days and Nights of Literature” International Festival in both 2007 and 2008, where he films “The 14th Wave,” a documentary highly praised by the president of U.S.R. (Writers’ Union of Romania). Loviste is also noted for his exclusive interviews with the famed Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko and the 2006 Nobel Laureate for literature, Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk. Loviste’s literature and television activity have brought him numerous regional prizes and distinctions.In 1994, Loviste publishes his first prose volume, “A Cross Too Heavy,” which deals with the Romanian village during the period around World War II. His next novel, “Stolen Identities” (1996), portrays Romanian soldiers being taken hostage in the Soviet Union. In 1997, he publishes “Nessus’s Attire,” a radiography of the period before and after the Communist regime. In his short story volume “The Irretrievable” (1999), the author addresses social issues. In 1999 he becomes a member of U.S.R. In 2001, he publishes “The City of the Last Eclipse,” a satire on the Romanian society after 1989, which in 2008 receives the Vasile Militaru Award from the Writers’ Union of Romania during the second National Festival for Literature and Satire in Pitesti. His last two volumes are republished in 2006 and launched during the Gaudeamus International Book Fair in Bucharest. In 2007, the same books are nominated for the U.S.R.-Pitesti Book of the Year (for prose) Award.In 2009, he publishes the novel “Apprentices of the Word,” a terrible confrontation between good and evil. At stake in this dramatic confrontation is man, to whom God gives freedom of choice. The key to this novel is, naturally, the Word, which is omnipresent and vital to man. The same year, the volume receives the U.S.R.-Pitesti Special Jury Book of the Year (for prose) Award. The Church also recognizes the spiritual and artistic value of the book, the Archbishop of Arges and Muscel, His Eminence Calinic Argatu, awarding it the plaquette of Saint Voivode Neagoe Basarab and the icon of the Saint, plated in silver and gold.Starting with 2012, the author devotes himself for four years to a new novel. “Halacha?” is built on the basis of three literary landmarks: First, the atmosphere in which the greatest act of injustice in the entire history of the human race – the Trial of Jesus – took place two thousand years ago; second, the political games that led to the assassination of Jesus Christ by involving high-level corruption – the terrible scourge haunting humanity yesterday, today and tomorrow – in the process; finally, the presentation of the most unusual form of legal defense of the Son Of God – silence. U.S.R.-Pitesti nominates the book for the Book of the Year (for prose) Award.In 2020 he writes “The Sacraments of Matrimony,” a humor and satire novella on those who mystify the biblical concept of the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony.
