From the Author:
I'll get right to the heart of it: Why did I write First Voices? It is a simple answer - because the Holy Spirit compelled me to. I am an avid movie and book collector, and the most striking thing I noted is this - when it comes to making movies and writing fictional books about the Bible, the vast majority of writers and directors simply don't understand the subject material. It makes me quell with sadness that what they don't know they blatently falsify with inaccurate depictions of character and settings and interactions with other cahracters. Many motion pictures are produced with the most incredulous lies and falsehoods imaginable.
It is indeed shameful. In fact, it is worse, as they can mislead the reader and viewer who are seeking kernels of truth into the dark alley of ignorance and misconception. Are their exceptions? Absolutely! There are wonderful works out there as well as great Biblical movie epics. It was in light of those great movie epics that I set out to write my books, but with the cautionary dictates of maintaining truth and reverence.
"First Voices" is actually a series of three biblical novels revolving around the lives of the personalities encompassing the Book of Genesis. It is a vast and complicated work with superb detailing of what could have taken place with original humanity in their involvement with their Creator. As with all my books, I devoted years of research to this enterprise. I wanted to accurately bring to life to the reader the possible mindset and approaches of the multitude of principal characters as they worked toward the preservation of mankind set against horrendous odds of failure. Without their efforts, Noah could never have become, and through him, certainly the human race would have perished thousands of years ago. So, as you can see, my writings take the Biblical stories as a literal truth.
Part One of First Voices explores an in depth realization of the personalities of Adam through Eber. Here is the absolute presentation of true character development as is humanly possible given the reserves of historic records. This necessry exploration will present to the reader a complete understanding of what happened in the Garden of Eden and you will walk with the original fathers on a trip of extraordinary insights into Biblical personalities.
With full confidence I can truthfully declare that there is absolutely nothing in the marketplace by any author that approaches the magnificence of this type of subject matter. I approached these spiritually influenced novels with the idea of presenting all the Biblical characters in their full array - and with the power of the Holy Ghost - that is exactly what I achieved. As with all my spiritual writings - and as I have stated before - the power of the Holy Ghost guided my fingers to write what I wrote with profound dignity. My body was immersed with an electrifying power that is easily testified to upon reading the material. My work is my witness. And I absolutely promise - no one on the face of the earth has ever undertaken such a personal scope of spiritual identification with our Biblical fathers.
If you have never experience the Holy Ghost's presence I will tell you this: it is an extraordinary bathing of pure, essential radiance. I could actually feel my hairs tingling with an electrical sensation coupled with the power of profound insight. As I was writing this section of "First Voices" I became so mesmerized and entranced I never realized how swiftly the nights passed into morning. Nothing was more important for me than visiting my "Biblical family and best of friends." Night after night I imagined myself talking with Adam and Noah Eber as well as the others.
This three-part Biblical-novel presents all the personalities of the Book of Genesis within the full scope of God's presence. I delved into their lives as no other writer has. More, I placed them within the context of historical underpinnings of the other worldly rulers so the reader may fully appreciate the political-economic currents of that historic era. One incredible drama after another unfolds in this giant exploration of the men of Genesis. It was their First Voices that gave credence to our own survival. Through their examples the reader will gleam the methodologies of spiritual survival of present days events. I set about to demonstrate how a family may discover through hardships the Shield of Salvation from the coming upheaval. Through this confession of our original fathers we will be inspired to walk in righteousness - because through them - we have a testimony that even though we may fail in our everyday tasks, the Grand Creator will uplift us to enter into his earthly kingdom as he has done for our first fathers. These three part series are encompassed within the most profound spiritual and historic unveiling of Biblical personalities as never before presented. It is a voracious reading that luminously reveals every written word that our original fathers shared in the Book of Genesis. The three part series of "First Voices" (this book offering is Part One) are rendered with a fresh and insightful interpretation. It has been said by others that "First Voices" series presents in epic proportions an insightful interpretation of the words of God to mankind. "First Voices" demonstrates God's continuous interactions with mankind. It is God's purpose to call all mankind of all nations to reside in spiritual peace and harmony. Thus, it has been said that my writings are written from the hand of a profound mystic who immerses Biblical truths within the realty of actual people who suffer as we suffer, who love as we love, who fail as we fail - but still find the spark of life-saving grace that we are all entitled to find.
These comments belong to my Birdcatcher book - but they demonstrate my talents. Prof Wilson wrote: "His work is outstanding...He truly succeeds in making one want to know why and what next. He has a power of psychological involvement which is exceptional." Prof Carkeet wrote: "A breathtakingly good story -- a strong, violent, moving tale set in Vietnam...high quality in style and intellectual intrigue with a visionary streak." Another wrote: "Your work is often of astonishing brilliance...some of the most powerful writing I've ever seen in a writer...I would expect you to become a writer of serious note...I am deeply impressed by your book." And another: "Powerful writing...excellent action writing...amazing talent."
Concerning this book - it is truly an amazingly good work with impressive writing skills that immediately place it as a valuable work to own. It places Biblical principals and events in a fresh perspective. This is an impressive work that appears to be another Testament. Historically it is an accurate rendering with an incredible spiritual blessing. I present this tome as proof. Once read you'll certainly reach out for my other books as well.
