Overview

"Of the wonders I yet have heard, / it seems to me most strange that men should fear; / seeing that death, a necessary end, / will come when it will come." William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act II, Scene II

With transcendent understanding, Dr. Roy A. Teel Jr. takes us into the world of the dying-the world of faith and fate, of sadness and humor. His reality-based fiction invites you to join him in traveling the road of both physical death and emotional reckoning, with a few twists thrown in along the way.

The Light of Darkness presents a picture of death unlike any seen in modern times by offering you both freedom from mortality...and the reality of it.

"Death be not proud, though some have called thee / mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so, / for those who thou think'st thou dost overthrow, / die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me." John Donne, Holy Sonnets, Sonnet 10

The Light of Darkness brings you the other side of death: its mortal reality, its inevitability, and the differing ways that all of us will reach our ultimate end. But the journey doesn't end in the stories. The book gives death a voice in that it allows you to experience "Dialogues in Death" that none of us will know until we too are faced with our own demise.

A fresh departure from Dr. Teel's scholarly works, The Light of Darkness illuminates the shadow lands of our finite lives with its triumphs, tragedies, love, humor, anger and loss.

"Do not go gentle into that good night, / old age should burn and rave at close of day; / rage, rage against the dying of the light." Dylan Thomas, "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night"

Meet the Author

Roy A. Teel Jr. is an ordained minister and liberal Biblical scholar whose works have helped to enlighten the world in what he calls The Twenty-First Century Dark Age of Religion. He is also a cancer survivor and suffers from a devastating disease of the central nervous system, Multiple Sclerosis. Roy was a human subject for research through UCLA MS Research for close to a decade. He is an outspoken critic of the drug companies who exploit the sick and dying, as well as overprice-i.e. gouge-people for the drugs that they must have in order to save their lives and/or stay alive. While a proponent of free enterprise, he believes the dividing line between ludicrous profits and reasonable pharmaceutical care and costs is nonexistent in America. He is an active public speaker and frequent radio guest around the United States and abroad. His books have sold worldwide and continue to grow in popularity.
Dr. Teel holds Doctorate of Divinity and Doctorate of Biblical Studies degrees. He lives with his wife Tracy in Moorpark, CA.
