About the Book
For nearly two millennia, religious leaders across the globe have sought The Epistles of Jesus, but not for the benefit of their adherents. Churches want to suppress them, fearful that these writings would ever see the light of day. Governments have joined in the competition to possess them, desperate for a way to gain power over these same entities that for centuries have influenced the minds and hearts of their communities. These efforts have been deflected by a Council founded by Aulus Septimius, a diminutive but driven scholar of 2nd century Egypt. Rescued from destruction during the early formation of Christianity, The Epistles – letters written by Jesus Christ – show his true perceptions and values, insights that are certain to challenge the status quo, impact lives and institutions, and possibly disrupt entire cultures.

In the present day, the internet is a dinosaur being forced into its grave by the innovations of Alexander Georgios, Chief Technology Officer of Protocomm, a fast-growing darling of Silicon Valley. Protocomm is a key player in the market for space-based data management, and Alex’s prescience has brought earlier victors in global cyber wars to the edge of extinction amid their failure to keep pace with new technologies. These remorseless criminals must react aggressively to protect advantages built through decades of internet spying and theft.

The ability to control global industrial information and influence the passionate religious beliefs of a large portion of the world’s population irresistibly attracts the most ruthless, most ambitious, and most fearful of government and church leaders, all eager to deploy for themselves the source of such power. To confront these threats, the Council must decide its next move to protect the Epistles from disappearance or destruction – or to finally reveal them to the world.

But casting the Epistles into the rough seas of social media, competitive economies, cultural diversity, and rising political conflict poses globe-spanning risks.
