"I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Gospel of a cab driver. Being an immigrant myself and having
lived on three different continents during my life, I felt that the book addresses remarkably
well many aspects of what makes the USA such a great country. Reading this book made me realize
again that we should be grateful daily for being in "the land of the free" and the land of
opportunities. Dr. Ajluni addresses the issues of an immigrant interacting with a group of very
kind and generous Americans and in a very clever way weaves in the challenges between Jews,
Muslims and Christians. Most of all, the book is a love story among humans and I tell my family,
friends and neighbors to read it."
"GOSPEL OF A CAB DRIVER is a very interesting
'first' novel that captivated my
attention. I was fascinated by the diversity of characters, the personal
interactions, and the deep human feelings. The mix of cultural and religious
understanding, tolerance and acceptance reflects the author's personality and
demeanor. Bravo Roger for a most compelling story.

"The Gospel is deceptive as the author uniquely combines today's complex mix
of diversity and false beliefs with a certain measure of serenity. It is
written without judgment and with compassion and at the same time leaves no
place for the reader to hide. It is profoundly spiritual. As illustrated
by Zachariah, it gives new meaning for those who sincerely seek to heal
today's wounds while showing what is possible of mankind. In times that
are filled with conflict and pain, like a light bulb, it sheds light on the
splendor and divinity of the human soul.
His passages provide a glimpse of whom we can be when we are able to look
beyond the self-imposed judgment, fear, and shame of current beliefs that
hold us hostage. In short, it offers a profound level of growth to those
who seek wisdom.
Finally, it is awesome that Dr. Ajluni, who is trained by the acumen of
concrete science, is such a literary, incredible writer. His skill in
deftly tackling the complex issue of not having to believe in any one God
to find the path to the Higher Power's message was done with brilliant

"I had to reread some of the insightful passages that were representative of
the whole manuscript. I just wanted to appreciate the depth and breath of the
issues that we immigrants are so romantic about in our adoptive country, the
United States of America!
I do relate to many of your views that you revived and brought to the
forefront. The decent morality and philosophy that runs under the surface of
the words by Zechariah, Dr. Atwater and his daughter, Reverend Moore, and of
course, St. Paul with his pragmatic views relevant even in today's world, were
truly very thought provoking. Even the harsh political realities and
trickeries were also a wake up call.
Thank you for expressing eloquently what many of us feel but fail to express.
I wish and hope that the book will be a primer for the next generation in our
