The Enoch Factor is an award-winning book, having been named one of two finalists for “Most Inspirational Book of the Year-2011 in the IndieBook Awards (NYC).

It has been described as “a candid memoir” on how misguided religion can become.

It calls for an end to religious dogmatism and narrow-minded fundamentalism and the consequential crisis of faith that is driving millions to question lifelong beliefs, change religions, or abandon the Christian faith altogether.

The Giving Myths makes the compelling case that the highest purpose of human existence is to give yourself away and generously share your abundance with the world.

Being generous isn’t the way to happiness, it is happiness.

The life you’ve always wanted cannot be found in things such as career, relationships, personal achievements, or even achieving the American Dream. It is found only in learning how to get outside your own skin and freely give yourself away. The book shows you how.

Suicide…an Unpardonable Sin?

Suicide Saint Augustine believed this in the fifth century and, as a consequence, this became the Church’s position regarding suicide for centuries. But Saint Augustine was wrong about this, just as he has been wrong about many other things, including “original sin.” For most of my life, I have let the Church do much of […]

Cheek Turning: Completely Impractical Words Jesus Spoke

Cheek Turning: “If someone strikes you,” counseled Jesus, “turn the other cheek!” Completely impractical words, wouldn’t you agree? Who does this?

Difficult People At one time or another, we have all had dealings with difficult people. Do you remember the last time you did?

Atheists…Would You Want to Marry into a Family of Atheists? Hell No!
