Jerry Kays’ Spirit Calls takes us on his lifelong journey to find spirituality and God. This highly personal journey examines the traditional religions of the world, including New Age philosophy, along with his enlightening observations of the role of politics in spirituality throughout history. This modern day journey of man’s age old quest to find God is highly relevant as Kays uses current events to help describe his personal conclusions on discovering God and spirituality. Kays brilliantly uses a few simple formulae to illustrate highly complicated concepts, making Spirit Calls a challenging and rewarding journey.

From the Back Cover:

An Alternative View of Spiritual Potential...based upon a personal transcendental awakening.

This extraordinary story speaks of one mans finding of God and spirituality when he was effectively "blindsided" by just that. Having been "turned off" by contemporary religions and not being aware of anything better, he was only seeking a more fulfilling life that had been waylaid by depression, when "out of the blue" came a spectacular "awakening"!

His highly personal experience was truly beyond words, but is here shared with you the reader. Nothing is held back as Jerry Kays tells of this unorthodox happening, what led up to it, and what wisdom he has acquired from it. His writing, at times, is like being in conversation with him as Jerry Kays challenges conventional wisdom, takes on traditional religion, politics, and the role of the news media in manipulating the thought processes of the modern world.

Jerry Kays takes us on his thoughtful journey with highly personal descriptions of the mileposts and turning points in his life. From his work, the death of his son, his study of religions of the world and the role of politics in forming religious thought, this is an interesting, challenging, and worthy journey that Jerry Kays takes us on. The brilliant use of a few simple formulae to illustrate highly complex concepts may be Jerry Kays’ most innovative contributions to man’s age-old quest for spirituality and to find God.

That simple formulae is presented as the "Equation of Truth" presently sought by all, most notably by our more advanced scientists that are closing in on their "Theory of Everything", within this book, very simply presented as a "Gift of God" to all of humanity. Enjoy...!!!

About the Author:

Jerry Kays was born in southwest Washington State in 1940. His first love was commercial fishing done aboard the family boats ranging the Pacific coast in search of salmon and tuna. With enlistment in the US Navy’s nuclear submarine program, followed by private travel, he has seen much of the world. Considering himself a “jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none,” he has been a bartender, tugboat engineer and Generation Power Dispatcher on the federal high-voltage electrical power grid of the Pacific Northwest. Prior to his retirement, he experienced the accidental death of his son. That led to a depressive “mid-life crisis,” the healing of which came from a “Spiritual Awakening” subsequent to a contemplative “seeking with-in.” Moving to the rural forest of northwest Montana gave him the solitude to further study and reflect, leading to the writing of this book, a “spiritual mission” meant to impart some needed wisdom to a world in the throes of a dangerous, and ever-increasing polarization that, if not corrected, may well lead to a real “World Crisis.”
