The writing of this book was pure interest as the motivator. To seek answers to many questions that arise from biblical stories, taught by the Christian teachers. Many of those stories begged for further explainations, which always seemed to avoid a logical answer. So it has been left to others to assume answers to those questions. Religion touches the lives of almost everyone on the planet. It is as passionate as life itself. Believers defend it to the death, while others scoff at it and others muder because of it. It is big business: many became wealthy through both honest labor and scams, each selling the stuff with promises of grandeur, riches and happy joyous lives, which is not always the case. For people to become rich from spreading of 'God's words' others became poorer and I do not believe that this is what Jesus was all about.
Raised in an Anglican environment I attended Sunday services, was baptised, confirmed and sang in the choir. I had joined other youth groups in other faiths all of which just raised more questions about this thing called religion and what was taught.
I became a Tool and Machine Designer moving on to Manager of Manufacturing and then to Teaching High School. I am married with four children, three grand children and one great granddaughter. I have always been involved with sports and community activities, Minor hockey, Disabled Athletes Ass., Junior Squash lessons, Fundraising activities and serving on various Boards promoting Health and Fitness.
Now I live in a small community surrounded by farms. At an early age I took a dislike for big cities. This is a community where air is clean, whose people are devoted to its wellbeing in the quality of services they provide. Activities in the arts, entertainment, kids programs as well as senior programs such as health and fitness clubs. This communty has always punched above itself in this regard. It is a place where community churches go about their spiritual duties and playing an impotant role in counseling, providing space for meets of various clubs and organizations, young people activities and fundraising events. This book is the culmination of seven years of research and theorizing on some of the questions which troubled me. I hope it will stimulate thought, interest and the possibility of other ideas.
