After several years in the making we are finally in the home stretch! Without a doubt this has been the most challenging, thought-provoking and creative project I have ever worked on, for various reasons. And I do believe Shlomo and I met for the purpose of producing this book, as dramatic as that might sound to some readers. When they (hopefully) read Steps To Salvation, I believe that will become clear. Although we’re very different in many ways, my client and are also alike in our spiritual development, belief in limited government, support of positive (pure) capitalism, and our desire that the world finally learns from history so that we can stop repeating its mistakes and every country on the globe can function as a constitutional republic.
Yep, that’s a tall order. But as Jamie Wilson says, “News stories inform your mind. Fiction and art inform your soul.”
To that end, I’ve worked diligently to make Steps To Salvation as entertaining as possible while also showcasing Shlomo’s practical ideas for energy, education, medicine, money, food and other important industries. Some of the themes of this fictional story will probably anger traditionally religious people (especially the belief in reincarnation and The One God Religion) as well as those with a collectivist mindset in terms of politics. Many aspects of plot will most likely shock a majority of readers including the Arusha Race Unity Regional High School graduating class characters — all of whom have been forced to take on the name of an evildoer from the End Days.
We carefully selected the historical figures referenced in the book and in the interest of brevity, could not have possibly based a character on every malevolent human that ever walked the earth and made life miserable for the innocent. Sadly, there are just way too many of them to mention and doing so would’ve mandated about 5,000 pages instead of my goal of 200. So when you read, keep in mind that the characters selected related specifically to a concept we wanted to get across. For example, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun’s love story (the 2415 characters, not the real people from the 20th century) embodies the concept of complete atonement and final payment of a karmic debt.
There are so many layers to this multi-faceted novel I couldn’t possibly do them justice in a single blog post. Once the book is released next month, Shlomo and I will create a series of weekly videos in which he will delve into each idea with more depth and clarity. Steps To Salvation is actually the first step in a long series of projects my client is envisioning and planning. But before anything else can come to fruition, the book must be released and marketed.
So that’s where we are. Please visit Shlomo’s new blog for more information including a synopsis of the story. Follow him on twitter @ShlomoAttia and like his Facebook Page, Shlomo Attia, Author.
