Reluctant Messenger book
    #1216509 - 01/14/03 05:57 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I electronically submitted the manuscript for the novel version of The Reluctant
Messenger of Science and Religion just a few hours ago. (1/13/2003) It should
take about 90 days before the book can be actually ordered.

The book is a little over 90,000 words in length. That should translate into
about 300 or so pages. According to the publishers guidelines, the price will be
in the range of $16.95 to $20.95 for the paperback version. The hardbound
version will be $10 more than the paperback version. Only the paperback version
will be available at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and other book sellers. I plan to
offer a signed and numbered hard cover first printing collectible edition from
the website. Members of the mailing list will have the first option. Once the
first printing is sold, no more collectible editions will be sold. However,
signed hard cover and soft cover versions will always be available from the
website.

The book has three stories, Chester and Lydia are the two main characters and
each has a separate story. There is a third story that concerns their best
friends. A lot of material that is not on the website is in the book.

I originally thought I would have to have a bonus section to properly represent
the views of the website. After an extensive rewrite, all of the important
points were covered without the need for a bonus section.

The back cover will read something like this:

Never before has a book solved so many mysteries.

Science teaches the Theory of Evolution, Genesis describes Creation.
Christianity, Judaism and Sufism teach a resurrection. Hinduism Buddhism and
Sikhism teach reincarnation. This book resolves both of these paradoxes.

Chester and Lydia meet in a debate. One wins and one loses, but neither are ever
the same. Lydia discovers a secret about her past that is so shocking it
destroys her family. She tries to ignore her discovery but her nightmares won?t
let her. Chester's greed for gold and revenge lead him to discover an ancient
knowledge the powers of darkness are determined to suppress. The last time the
information got out, thousands died. But somehow he must safely reveal it to the
world.

It?s one of the most inspirational stories I have ever read! Honest! Clint ?
long-term fan of The Reluctant Messenger website.

The inside jacket for the hard cover will read like this:

Are the Theory of Evolution and the Genesis Account of Creation mutually
exclusive? Simple genealogical math gives us fewer than 6,000 years since God
created Adam and Eve as described in Genesis. Science claims the fossil records
go back 3.6 billion years. Is this paradox resolvable? Why do we have so many
religions? Three religions, Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism believe in
reincarnation. Three other religions, Judaism, Christianity and Sufism believe
in a resurrection. How can they both be right? The reason we can't reconcile the
theory of evolution with the Genesis account of creation or the apparent
contradiction of reincarnation and a resurrection is because of one simple yet
key piece of information. This book provides it.

Stay tuned for more details.

I need Yosiah, Pranav and Clint (Journeyman) to contact me by email since two of
you are in the acknowledgements and one is quoted on the back cover. All three
of you get a free copy for helping me as I wrote the book.
