A compelling case for the need to identify the sources and authenticity of a traditional knowledge that still has the explanatory power to shape and enrich people’s lives in today’s materialistic and anti-spiritual world. To that end, he takes the reader out of the modern era and its scientific worldview back through traditional history to the edge of time in order to raise and reflect upon the following questions:

* What are the true sources of knowledge?
* Are they valid, authentic and objective beyond any human doubt?
* Is there a headwater of knowledge or a wellspring of truth that serves as the first source of all human knowing?
*Is all knowledge relative and all truth conditioned by the molecular impulses of human minds such as contemporary scientists would have us believe?
* Is there a source so transcendent and an origin so profound that it can eliminate all human doubt and uncertainty?
* Is there a supreme-power with the potential to synthesize into a single web the disparate elements that we witness within the existential reality of our lives?
* In short, is there a knowledge so comprehensive that it can neutralize
the duality of the world and resolve the mystery at the heart of man and the universe by offering a unified vision of the Whole?

The book explores a central question that is of vital interest not only to academics and reli-gious scholars, but also to the many people in an increasingly discerning mass population who think spirituality plays a vital role in today’s society. To complement the dark spirit of our time, people are asking themselves not only what they believe and why, but also where their beliefs originate. The answers of modern science, including the mysterious and unexplained origin of life, the chance evolution of man, and the reliance on physical matter to determine the reality leave people cold and feel as dry as ashes. The book’s distinctive style and inspirational narra-tive will strongly appeal to readers interested in these questions, taking them on an inward jour-ney through some uncharted territory that may lead them toward a future worth hoping for.



Professional Reviews
Seeking Beyond the Horizon
A thought-provoking inquiry into the mystery of man's origins and final end.

Answers Science Couldn't Hope to Find
This book raises the question: How do we know what we profess to know. The answer can be found within the near horizon of the inner self and within nature, in which the writer invokes the distant horizon as the supreme cosmic symbol of the unknown mystery at the heart of the universe.
