God's newest messenger is a rock star. But are his songs really divinely inspired or the delusions of a sick mind? Angel Waters is the lead singer and songwriter for Voice of God, a contemporary Christian band of little renown. But with the release of Do Unto, the band finds itself with a crossover hit, and now fans-both Christian and secular-are clamoring for more. As Angel's lyrics become more universal in theme and his music more heavily rock 'n roll, he is accused by band members and fans of abandoning his Christian ministry to spread a New Age message in conflict with the Bible. The controversy deepens when Angel admits he's been having visions and his songs are the result of direct revelations from God. Is Angel blessed or is he crazy? As Angel, the press, and the psychiatric community seek to find the answer, legions of fans who both love and hate him continue to grow. The Songs of Galileo comes at a time when the forces of intolerance and fanaticism are exceedingly powerful. As the story unfolds, readers will find themselves embarking on a mysterious spiritual odyssey in a search for the ultimate Truth. Voice of God is the first book in The Songs of Galileo trilogy. Look for On the Road to Paradise and Dark Heart of the Knight. On sale soon.

It is a rare day when we aren't bombarded with news of another atrocity committed in the name of religion. Muslims destroying property and injuring people because they are offended by cartoons, "Christians" bombing abortion clinics or shooting up gay bars, a university professor in Kansas beaten by those opposed to a course he was teaching on religion, and Baptist churches being torched by arsonists are just a few of the news stories in the past few months. About the time Muslim fundamentalists in Afghanistan began destroying ancient statues of Buddha carved out of the sides of mountains, I began considering that all of the religious fanatics can't be correct in their beliefs, even though all are equally convinced that only their religion has God figured out and that only their beliefs are valid. And I began to wonder what would happen if God sent a new messenger to us? And what if that messenger told us that God says none of the existing religions have it right, that all are misconstruing who and what He is and how He wants us to live? How would we react? The Songs of Galileo trilogy is my vision of what the reaction would likely be. I sincerely believe our world either has to embrace religious tolerance or be prepared for World War III. I hope you'll join with me in a call for tolerance, peace, and understanding.About the Author:
Marty's previous efforts as an author resulted in his being tortured by the Spanish Inquisition for heresy. He died while on the rack. Apparently, he didn't learn his lesson, because in this incarnation he's still writing and the religious establishment still isn't happy with the results.
