About the Author

Jeremiah was born in the baby boomer years in North London UK. As a young scholar, having just arrived at grammar school, he fell madly in love with the science of chemistry from his first sight of the periodic table of the chemical elements. He was mesmerised by the fact that the whole of the observable universe was made up of innumerable combinations of no more than 98 naturally occurring elements. Moreover these elements were also logically organised and ordered according to their nuclear and electronic structures in such a beautiful way. It struck him that such order, beauty and grace could not have occurred as a matter of some random process but rather than as an intelligent creation. This event, in his first class in the chemistry laboratory at the start of his first year in secondary school, was probably his first true spiritual experience. This has proved subsequently to be a wonderful start for his journey into the realms of science and creation.

Questions of self then followed such as: 'Who am I?' 'What am I?' 'Where did I come from?' All this being coupled with the overall feeling that he just was not really part of this world and had little in common with most of its inhabitants.

After much searching Jeremiah finally arrived at the place he needed to be. He discovered and subsequently became a member of the research group (The Lords' Witnesses) engaged in the detailed decoding of the holy scriptures through their work on the True Bible Code.

The Fourth Light is Jeremiah's first foray into the world of science fiction writing and is loosely based on biblical interpretations uncovered through that research. The idea of writing a novel occurred to him during a lengthy rest and recovery period subsequent to a recent surgical procedure. It remains to be seen if this will tempt him into writing further novels.

to say this is totally unlike anything I’ve ever read before would be an understatement! I’m not sure how to even describe this book as SO much happens, and it seems to touch on so many elements, themes, and subjects. It is presented almost like a nonfiction story, yet it is clearly fantastical and creative, yet very intelligently so. I think that you need to take your time while reading it to really grasp everything the author is saying, as it will require some deeper thought and reasoning. Very interesting!

I am a bit of mixed feelings with The Fourth Light…by Jeremiah B. David. On one hand it was almost brilliantly realized and the depth of the interweaving storylines and the characters was amazing. But it was just hard to read visually. All I could see were blocks of solid text the whole way through my Kindle, and frankly its exhausting to try to read that way. Would have been better with formatting with indentations and smaller paragraphs. Also, the lack of dialogue gave it a distinctive feeling of being “told” a story instead of being a part of it. I know this is done in an “autobiographical” style (even though it’s clearly made up), but this made the reading for me slower and the pacing uneven. Interesting subject matter, but the execution didn’t work for me.

4.5 stars Well this book took me a while to read, but in the end I’d say it was worth it! I like how everything came together, and I enjoyed reading this unusual book! The appendix at the end was handy too… almost wished I’d used it sooner though, as sometimes there was a lot to keep track of! Anyways, the themes and events that happen are relatable to modern day, yet with a new spin. The author writes VERY well… very descriptive and strong and we feel like we are there almost like watching a movie or something. The editing is near flawless, with the exception of the block formatting which was at times a bit frustrating. Overall an interesting, if not surreal novel that pushes the boundaries of typical literature.

wow, what a crazy book! I’m not one for rehashing the plot (that’s what the summary is for on the book description page), but trust me when I say you’ve never read anything like this before! It’s quite dense and is not for the stupid or feeble minded… trust me. But if you like science-fiction, action, dystopian, and/or spiritual fiction, you’ll enjoy this one. It’s not a fast and easy read by any stretch, but it will take you through new concepts and perspectives that you’ve never thought of before. Very cool!

It took me some time to get into this book, and at first I wasn’t really sure where it was going. But the more I read the more I got into it, and thoroughly enjoyed this new world and reality the author writes of. It has a mix of almost everything… aliens, religion, post-apoc, spirituality, humanity… a unique book that will stay with me for some time.

this was a very original take on fiction for me, and at times it seemed like I was reading a recounting of something “real” that had happened, even though that is obviously not the case. I know that all fiction novels are like that (realistic-feeling stories that are made up), but this one was exceptionally so…. It starts off with some considerable backstory to set up the scene and ground the reader in the world-building, which the author Jeremiah B. David does a wonderfully convincing job of creating a believable backdrop. The author also has a great “voice” in spinning these complex and intelligent plotlines all together. Well done.
