The A.M. God
About the Book
It is estimated that there are 19 major religions in the world with approximately 270 subdivisions and thousands of smaller groups. Many religions have changed over the millennia and some no longer exist. Each claims salvation of the human soul, or something equivalent, and most extol themselves as the one true religion… the religion that the one true god wants His followers to practice.
In 10 diverse poetic chapters, The A.M. God takes the reader on a lyrical and spiritual discourse of how faith shapes our lives and how our lives shape faith. Not always pleasant and not always kind, The A.M. God does provoke thought about one’s own journey through this unpredictable experience we call life, what happens after death, and how religion itself affects our view of the two. At times irreverent, at times sarcastic; at times joyful, at times magnanimous. This book explores the idea that there is only one god we all pray to in one form or another… The A.M. God.
