Andrew, the young comparative religions professor from Book I, knows what he needs to do. He needs to give the still sleeping Adam flesh, by mating with a young and mysterious Middle Eastern woman known as Mara. The time is right at last, so what can possibly stop Andrew and Mara from coming together in fulfillment of prophecy? Well, for one thing, there's Michael. And then there are those who follow Michael, the great archangel who's made it his mission to keep humanity in its current ignorant and deluded state. Ranged on the looming battle's other side are Mantrella, Bringer of Light, and those who follow him. Meanwhile, Earth itself convulses as its inhabitants endure the plagues of Revelation. Will those who can stop Michael act in time? And even if they do, will they prevail? We sincerely hope that you enjoyed BOOK I of the Trilogy. It sets the stage for THE SACRED ROTA and the progression of events that leads to THE SECOND COMING OF HUMANITY. Many readers have commented that the series has many levels of meaning. Our response has often been that in order to understand what we are saying, the reader must read between the lines. By this we mean that the real story and meaning flow not from just the written word, but also from the inner spirit that guides us all to greater levels of awareness. When you finish this book, ask yourself the following questions: “What was meant by the term, Sacred Rota?” Is it just some old religious tribunal, or does it have a broader meaning in the context of our changing times? We have presented a story where all notions of good and evil are turned onto their heads. Is this done just for the sake of sensationalism, or has humanity been led into an intellectual abyss where the concepts of such terms have been distorted to keep the ‘faithful’ in line? Read between the lines and see if the ‘age of worn-out dogma’ is indeed at an end. Here's when Lucifer harangues an Archangel: “You create demons and false hopes of redemption. You build them mighty temples and give with one hand and slaughter with the other. You have kept them separate and ignorant and give just enough to raise empty hopes. You destroy their prophets and burn their seers. If they question, you put them to the rack and crush all semblance of free thought. You give them a doctrine of poverty and offer riches in your fantasy heaven. Kill in the name of god and your treasure shall be immeasurable. You divide them and thus conquer them, and tell them they have no responsibility but to be good sheep and to follow your demented dictates.” This strikes me as an apt description of global religion.
