“I really like what I have read…. This is too good a book to be ignored … you are welcome to quote me and explain my position...." - Jeffrey Simmons UK (est. 1978) War of the Windsors, Friendly Fire, The Sion Revelation, The Secret History of Lucifer.


“I just finished reading your concluding chapter "New Dawns" for the 3rd time…. It is a remarkable piece of writing.... This is also dangerous writing and a parallel between John the Baptist and you came to mind…. You are truly writing in the spirit of the prophets….” - Gavin W. Young, Jr., M.A., M.A.P.M., C.T.A.C. Whitehawk Spirit Coaching, LLC

"Whether religious or not, if you live on Planet Earth and care for future generations, you should read this most important message to Humanity from a thorough, courageous and wise scholar. One of the most significant books of our time." - Nelson Horton  Order of Socrates

“With our human species spiralling to extinction, this book is a must read for everyone. Anderson clearly defines the 3 major religions on the planet, their origins, their differences and similarities, and warns us that if we don't come out of our boxes, it could mean the end of civilization as we know it. Very informative. Should be required reading for all of humanity.” - Amazon  March 20, 2009


“The author effectively mines history to illustrate his points and his analysis of contemporary religious politics, including a fascinating investigation into the Bush Administration’s insistence on defining the enemy as evil, proves to be both convincing and frightening.” - Kirkus Discoveries

“I gave a copy of your last chapter to each member of our extended family during our Grand Canyon reunion. With our many different backgrounds, religious beliefs, and life experiences I had no idea what the reaction would be. Each day we discussed it. Let me tell you; it was a deeply religious experience for all of us." - Joseph Justice, Parthenon Salon Studios, Boca Raton Florida

"We neeed more books like this one. The time has come to bring the environmental crisis into the public mind on a broader scale." - Harry Brenan, Comments, International Herald Tribune

General Comments

“The Frost quote indeed raised the hair on the back of my neck. Indeed prescient.”

“A clearly written piece on a very, very important subject with an unusual grasp for the important historical and theological factors needing discussion.”

“I do, however, agree that the statements of Jesus to Thomas are 'a call for a redefinition of the image of God' in the sense that Marcus Borg refers to as 'panentheism.' "

“Tillich's language of Ultimate Concern and Ground of our Being seem to me to sit comfortably beside your essay.”

“I was absolutely amazed at your ability to express so clearly in writing the ideas and feelings so many of us have in the Progressive Christianity community.”

“Based on what I read in your biography, we seem to share many views.  I too have read Shelby Spong and Karen Armstrong and they have helped shape my  current theology.”
