About the Author

Brought up in fundamentalist Christianity, Lee & Steven spent over twenty years as dedicated Christian teachers. Although their service to others was the most gratifying aspect of their lives, other important parts of the puzzle were missing. They were disappointed that their faith had not resulted in the deep and sustaining peace and joy they believed it should, and it failed to offer satisfying answers to their questions about God. Eventually their continued questioning resulted in excommunication. They continued their search for several years, but kept finding the same disappointing answers. Frustrated by severe illnesses, family and financial problems, and their seeming failure to find God, they made a suicide pact. Before carrying it out, they prayed one last time, but this prayer, and the result, was very different than anything they had experienced before. Instead of asking for what they wanted, they laid aside all their personal preferences and preconceived ideas. For the first time, they were willing to accept any message they received as long as it resulted in a connection with Source. The answer they got came from a most unlikely source: quantum physics. They suddenly realized that science and spirituality create a powerful synergy that can transform our lives. The misery and fear we each experience is the direct result of our misperception of the universe and our place in it. The Beginning of Fearlessness: Quantum Prodigal Son is a spiritual quest and scientific adventure written to help you let go of the misperceptions that have made you miserable.


Steven Hager and his wife Lee are the authors of The Beginning of Fearlessness: Quantum Prodigal Son, a spiritual quest and scientific adventure based on Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son, quantum physics and the gnostic gospels. Since childhood, Lee and Steven were determined to know Ultimate Reality. They spent over 25 years as dedicated Christian teachers, but never felt directly connected to Source. Their many questions eventually led to excommunication and a renewed determination to find God. They persisted in their search for several years, but kept finding the same disappointing answers. Frustrated by severe chronic illnesses, family and financial problems, and their seeming failure to find God, they made a suicide pact. Before carrying it out, they prayed one last time, but this prayer, and the result, was very different than anything they had experienced before. Instead of asking for what they wanted, they laid aside all their personal preferences and preconceived ideas. For the first time, they were willing to accept any message they received as long as it resulted in a connection with Source. The answer they received came from a combination of very unlikely sources: quantum physics and the gnostic gospels. They suddenly realized that science and spirituality create a powerful synergy that can transform our lives and wake us to the realization that we can never be disconnected from Source.
