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.

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

Want to marry into a family of atheists? “Hell No!” say most conservative Christians. I’ve been in a writing mode for the last few days.

But one thing I have learned over the years is that there are no short-cuts to service, only better ways to provide […]

Worth of a Dime…the Worth of a Soul!

Do we all have value? Any worth? Ever felt as if you had none?
