A Five Star Tale Is Reborn

Released on: July 21, 2009, 4:47 am
Author: Mario Bernheim
Industry: Media

July 21, 2009, Long Beach , CA. – Much like a Broadway play, TV co-producer and writer Mario Bernheim took his novel, “Michael’s Reward” out of town and came back with five star reviews by some very discerning and enthusiastic readers f r o m coast to coast. This is Bernheim’s first novel.

“Michael’s Reward” takes the Old Testament book of Job and adapts it beat-for-beat in a modern spiritual drama s e t in Santa Barbara , California . The story takes you through a journey of extremes with Michael, a very successful and faithful family man who loses everything because God and Satan have made a wager on his devotion and dedication. Echoing the lives of so many people today, Michael looses what he thought was important, but finds that the depth of his faith in God proves to be his salvation in every way.

Mario Bernheim started his career in theentertainment industry at Universal Studios working for movie director Joel Schumacher. He was a founding staff member of Comic Relief on HBO, hosted by Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg and Robin Williams. Mario spent 12 years administering and co-producing TV specials to raise money and awareness for America ‘s homeless.

Having visited so many homeless shelters across the country Mr. Bernheim drew both inspiration and details for his book f r o m those people who were looking for help and a way back to a life they once knew. Bernheim added, “Whether it’s Job who lived this story three thousand years ago or someone in Anywhere, USA , this story will show us that faith doesn’t come easy but its rewards are immeasurable”.
