Overview

Welcome to the Third Edition of Waking God: The Journey Begins. The Waking God Trilogy is not about the doom and gloom that organized religions would have you believe. It is not about an Armageddon style ‘end times’ that pits good against evil in some final battle where religious dogma is triumphant. Yes, there is a final battle of sorts, but as Mantrella says, “It is not about saving humanity, it never has been.” While the Trilogy comes down hard on organized religion and its ‘worn out dogma,’ it is not atheistic. Instead, it totally rejects the idea of some schizophrenic super-being that loves to punish and reward its servants, and recognizes a Universal consciousness of which we are all a part. It acknowledges that within each of us there is a ‘god seed’ that is waiting to experience an awakening brought on, as in any major evolution, by not only environmental, but also social, economic, and political stress that will help to create a spontaneous evolution in humanity. Or, if allowed to remain dormant, this same seed will be our undoing. The prophecies all speak of a choice. Nostradamus, the Hopi, the Mayans, the I Ching, the Riddles of DaVinci and the Tarot speak to a time of choosing. Hidden codices, books of revelation, and ancient sacred texts also speak of this time of choosing. That time is upon us. The elements are all there. From bursts of energy from the center of our galaxy to the scientific discoveries about the true nature of our reality, the puzzle nears its completion.
“…make the Da Vinci Code look like a church hymn…. It should make you think. Calling it provocative is an understatement. …groundbreaking and revolutionary ideas …. Epic in scope ….”

Editorial Reviews

Barb Radmore
A fascinating journey through the world of religious theory, it is a work that will bring questions to believers and non-believers alike. Doe and Harris have offered an alternative view of “God,” of the foundations of all organized religions and the evolution of the world itself. In a work of breathtaking depth and scope they have proposed an alternative theory that binds brilliantly with the current events of our world. It destroys the allegiances of man to churches that promise s

“WAKING GOD is not an easy book to pin down in a couple of words. It’s a thriller, but doesn’t seem quite comfortable in that category. It’s definitely a religious book, but not of any of the established religions, and in fact quite opposed to them. It’s likely to appeal to many of the Da Vinci Code fans, but it’s not a copycat. The back cover identifies it as “Speculative / Thriller.” I think I would only change that to “Spiritual T
Howard Perlman
“Every so often, a new and sensational idea causes humanity to question the fundamental principles of our existence and being and catalyzes the notion that not everything is as it appears. In the new and exciting novel, Waking God, American University Alumnus Philip Harris and co-author Brian Doe take a look at a series of these groundbreaking and revolutionary ideas and tickle our imaginations through a journey of discovery and meaning that enlightens one on the very foundation of moral
Piers Anthony
"I read Waking God. Then my computer crashed. I don't think those two events are connected...A fast moving story with thriller aspects, interspersed by serious religious discussions...there is real thinking here. A provocative novel, part thriller, part religion. It should make you think. A worthy novel."
Piers Anthony, New York Times Bestselling Author and Nebula and Hugo Award Nominee
Susan Haley
The American Constitution dictates separation of church and state. After reading "Waking God", I'm wondering if it's possible. The key word here is 'wondering'. If the intent of this book, and the ones to follow in the series, is to provoke critical thinking, it's a huge success. Calling it provocative is an understatement.
