Legacy of a Father Book Introduction

This book was initially written to be a father’s legacy for the four beautiful daughters, my wife Diane and I brought into this world.  It didn’t take long for me to realize that what I wanted to impart to our children was of sufficient importance that it should be conveyed to all people.  The obvious reality that Judaic, Christian and Muslim worshippers all pray to the same God appears to be overlooked or ignored in their religious instruction.

It is the written words of inspired and dedicated writers that we owe the vast amount of knowledge preserved for us to assimilate and extend our abilities to better understand the world in which we live.  But the civilized world has been deprived of a legacy that we have inherited and unfortunately, give little, if any, acknowledgement.

This book brings to light the truth of the development of our monotheistic God from the Egyptian religion.  If you have used the word Amen in your temple, church or mosque and never knew that he was the greatest Egyptian God, then you owe it to yourself to read this book.

This book is suited for use in high schools, colleges and universities. It provides knowledge furnished with facts and findings that reveal the nature of man and how he conceived God.  It is a fine supplement for students of humanities, psychology, history, sociology, and theology studies.
 
Few people have been exposed to the history of our religious past. Only by having a true understanding of how our beliefs in God originated can we proceed on a path of knowledge about God and our purpose in life. Such knowledge will challenge many of us who have been brought up with a prescribed set of religious dogma. To reveal the truth of our religious past, Legacy of a Father provides substantiated facts that support the acquired knowledge this author imparts to you.

Dear reader, as you enter the journey Legacy of a Father provides, many insights and revelations may appear new to you.  As the author, I feel too close to describe its significance and am honored that a fellow writer, Mike Voyce, has captured why this book can add depth and under-standing to your own personal and instilled religious beliefs.

Retired and possibly no longer alive, Mike has enjoyed the practice and teaching of law, psychology, abnormal psychology, and counselling.  He is the celebrated author of Edward and The Necromancer.  During his active years, Mr. Voyce hosted a radio talk show in the United Kingdom with his wife Christine and wrote blogs and articles that deal with the paranormal, psychology, and the soul.  Below is his extraordinary review for Future of God Amen, which is a cut-down version of the two-part volumes that make-up Legacy of a Father. Because 98 percent of its content was transposed to Future of God Amen, the author has elected to provide Mike Voyce’ book review for Legacy of a Father.  Mike did not have the opportunity to read Legacy of a Father.  However, it truly deserves credit and acknowledgement, which is genuinely provided below.

Review of Future of God Amen by Mike Voyce

Let me say I now understand the difficulties of a reviewer faced with a book of true originality, depth, and scale. It is not like any other book I have read, and for that reason alone, it is a must read for anyone with any interest in any part of the Western religious tradition; embracing Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, or any section of those religions. Let me say again, unless you are entirely uninterested in the religions and cultures of the West and the Middle East, you owe it to yourself to read this book.

I remember when that sensational volume, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, came out. It sold in the tens of millions of copies; and that book was based on the limited proposition that Mary Magdalene had born Christ’s child and produced a bloodline which could be traced into modern times. The scale and potential importance of the Future of God Amen is very much greater.

What Nicholas Ginex’s book does is create a framework, spanning many thousands of years, in which you can place the development of religious ideas. You can trace components of each of the three Western religions, making it possible to compare, contrast, and evaluate the expression of these ideas. I have absolutely no doubt, if this book is taken seriously, it can add a depth and richness to the quality of each of these religions and the understanding of the followers of any one of them for the others.
 
By the way, the book is neither critical nor judgmental; at no point does it say “you must take this view” or that one religion has it right and others do not. It simply lays out major ideas of religion, where they came from, and how they were developed.

In these days of very rapid change and consequent conflict, with the awful tensions and misery of the Palestinian question seeming perpetually entrenched, there is an obvious need to realize that no religious inspiration or tradition should isolate its followers from the rest of humanity. By putting the development of religious ideas into the context of Egyptian and post-Egyptian history, Future of God Amen makes this possible. On reading his reasons for writing the book on Mr. Ginex’s website:

Future of God Amen

I naturally felt they were unreasonably ambitious; I no longer feel that.

Myself, having used inspiration to write a book and talking about inspiration regularly on an Internet radio show, I believe I can recognize it when I read it. Inspiration shows itself in the richness and range of what comes through, completely unlike a conscious invention or rehearsal of dull facts. The scale of the inspiration here is awesome, and I think Nicholas Ginex is still in awe of it himself; it shows in his need to reference, credit, and give details.

I elected to read Future of God Amen in an e-format; as my copy stands, the notes can get in the way a little. It’s a minor point and one which does not apply to a paper edition. In a way, these notes are endearing, showing Nicholas at pains to be open and truthful, and I have no doubt he is. His care to develop his story through the book carries you with him and drops “pennies” into place in your mind regularly as it goes.

Unlike radio and television, if you read a book, you give your time and yourself to it. For me, at least, the investment should be worthwhile. With so many books released today, I feel that investment is not worthwhile. On the other hand, you must never give up hope, for there are still books released today which can genuinely change your life. Future of God Amen is one of them.

It is Nicholas’ style to give you examples, and I can practically hear him wishing me to do so now. To be honest, it would be a mammoth task to do justice to his book in this way, but let me make a point about the title; Future of God Amen takes that one word, the derivation and meaning of which few of us know, right back to the Egyptian ultimate creator god, Amon.

“It is conceivable that God was at work from the very beginning by first introducing Himself to the Egyptians as the god of creation, Atum.  This god, venerated as two phases of the sun, Atum and Kheprer, later became Atum-Re. As the Priesthood developed a high moral code of conduct that offered the promise of eternal life, Atum-Re became Amon-Re, the principle god of Egypt. By 1270 BCE, before the Moses Exodus, the Priesthood of Amon wrote, “Amon As the Sole God” of all creation.

Today, many worshippers are unaware that they revere Amon as they announce his name as Amen in temples, churches, and mosques. They have been misled by religious leaders who continue to ignore the words of Jesus Christ stated in John’s Revelation 3:14. There, Jesus proclaimed Amen as, “the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.” Rather than reveal the truth, religious leaders have taught their worshippers that Amen means “so be it.”

This is a book for every Jew, Christian, and Muslim. Having myself looked in some detail at the initiation of a pre-dynastic Egyptian priest, I could wish Nicholas had given more time to the development of Egyptian pantheistic beliefs—that must be the subject for another work.
 
I commend this book to you.
Mike Voyce

* Note: Goddess Isis (Goddess of Moon, Earth and Nature) not to be mistaken with Goddess Hathor (Goddess of Fertility, Childbirth, Music, Dance, Love and Sex) because sometimes they both wear the similar topless dresses and horn ornament headdresses on their hairs. Sometimes the images are so similar that we can only distinguish between the two via reading the Hieroglyphs at the backgrounds to see who is who? Their necklaces are also slightly different.
* Most of the times Hathor and Isis wear different outfits: Hathor with Cobra and Globe headdress and Isis with Vertical Headdress wearing wings but sometimes they wear very similar outfits.
