Why is the topic of religion so contentious? Since childhood, everywhere he goes, Chacko sees a "clash of heavens" between people of different religions. He was brought up in the Christian Mar Thoma Church in a small village in India in the 1940s and has practised Christianity throughout his life. However, as he travels around the world, from India to Canada via Ghana, and witnesses political transitions and coups, acts of terrorism and war, and learns more about various religions, he is drawn into deep discussions with friends about belief, the Bible, and God. Was Jesus really a historical figure? Why are there different versions of the creation story? How does Darwin's Theory of Evolution fit in? Why is God referred to as "Father," and not "Mother" or "Sister"? Who is God?Along his journey of discovery and truth, Chacko meets "angels" from all walks of life who contribute to his outlook on humanity-but also bring him to question himself even more. Will his quest ever end?The Clash of Heavens: A Journey of Discovery with Angels explores the spiritual conflicts that can both disconnect and connect us from each other, the courage it takes to question the beliefs you've been taught in order to find your own truth, and how religion has shaped the world, from practices and folklore to beliefs and actions.
