International Besteller: The 21 was an instant bestseller in Europe upon its publication in German in February 2018. Major media event: The brutal killing of 21 Coptic Christians by ISIS in Libya was an unforgettable moment that still arouses interest. Publication date is on the four-year anniversary of the event. Center of a continuing global conflict: The turmoil in the Middle East and the issues of Islamic extremism, refugees, and economic migration that the book address continue to capture headlines regularly. Sheds light on a fascinating subculture: Coptic Christianity is an intriguing but little-understood religion in the center of the Middle Eastern conflict.
Martin Mosebach is a superb journalist. Virtually nothing escapes his gaze, and he glosses over nothing. --Hannes Stein, Die Welt Mosebach provides striking images of a singular Christianity unfamiliar to many Christians outside of the Middle East.... Through immersive scenes and finely drawn portraits of the people he meets, he exhibits a clear admiration for the Coptic devotion on every page. This will appeal to Christians as well as readers wanting to understand the lives of minorities in Muslim countries.--Publishers Weekly Martin Mosebach is undoubtedly one of the most intelligent, original, and powerfully eloquent poets of the present day. --Ulrich Greiner, Die Zeit Few contemporary writers have delved so deeply into the disturbing experiences of such an entirely different world and way of life. --HR 2 Mosebach has mastered a rare art: maintaining deep respect for the other. . . . Not a single detail loses its magic in this moving, impressive book: it reads like a ray of light, illuminating Western blind spots and foreign worlds. --Alexander Cammann, Die Zeit
