This book is my attempt to introduce you to a better way of life in Christ Jesus. However, if you are only a Christian on Sundays, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, then my book is not for you. My book is not for you if you only pray in time of trouble or if you feel that God has given you a spiritual charge card and you can "have it your way". No, my book is not designed for the sporadic Christian. It is for the serious, determined Christian who is facing obstacles in everyday life and the unsaved person who is at the crossroads of life and just don't know which way to turn..

Chasing philosophers through the ages, following our own ideas about the self, to dismantle both himself and modernity, the author brings in this tiny work, with candour, wisdom and depth, a dismantling of thought, a critique of the species, a pathway to virtue. "We are not talking about God here, nor even the grand scheme of society, we wonder about ourselves. By realizing when someone or something asks us to believe in it, in its intention, to create some reality out of an idea, we can begin to wonder about the value of following the rule." "If modernity is the cause of complexity and systemic complexity is the cause of the rampant ineptitude that keeps rearing its ugly head, and we, in our infinite confusion, attempt only to counter this problem by adding further complexity, are we not just denying there is even a problem?"
