So, I’ve written a new book and it’s going to change the world! I wrote that with a huge grin on my face but I’m pretty convinced that it really does have revolutionary and significant revelatory potential. I’ve been working on this project for over 3 ½ years and the name of the book is Quantum Christianity: Believe Again.
Those of you who know me well know that I spend quite a bit of time reading and studying diverse theological and scientific perspectives. To my excitement (and that of those who have gotten a sneak peak into it), some of the content and perspectives are shedding a completely new light on subjects most have never before heard addressed with clarity.
Check out some of the feedback from a few of the readers:
“I’ve spent the last two days weeping…If what you have stated in this book is true, then I have to reevaluate everything I have ever believed about God and how He feels about me.” – 20 something Female nurse who has struggled believing that God loved her because of events that transpired in her life.
“Aaron, I spoke with my wife tonight about what you have written and we are both in tears. I’ve never considered the possibility of God from this perspective, please do not quit writing. You have to finish this, the world needs to hear it…” – 30 something Male Gospel Recording Artist.
“I’ve never seen someone quantify, articulate and explain the thoughts and questions that I have had about God with this kind of relatable clarity. I love the way that you bounce back and forth between science and theology and tie them together. The content in this book is brilliant…” – 30 something Male producer and theoretical physics enthusiast.
“At first I was a little intimidated by the title assuming it may be above my head, but the way you have presented it was fantastic! I’ve read it twice and it was even better the second time! You specifically point out common “misteachings” or “misunderstandings” (for lack of better descriptors) about the Bible and explain things in a way that makes sense and is inspiring; I feel like you carefully and successfully “walk the line” between what you believe are truths & foundational principles in the … The book really makes you feel like you are TRULY part of something much bigger & that you DO make a difference – more so than perhaps we can ever even imagine or truly understand. I really do think this book is greatly needed and can potentially make a HUGE positive impact in the world. If people are receptive to it – it can be a game changer – and there aren’t many times one can say that.” – 40 something Female talent scout & manager
“Aaron, this book is so good! On many occasions it has blown my mind and truly altered my spiritual perspective by helping validate and clarify views I have as a Christ follower…” – 30 something Male Med Student
As you can see, there is a consistent message in the feedback and I’m SUPER encouraged with how it is resonating with so many different demographics!
So What’s The Book About?
This quote below is presently what is slated to be on the back of the book:
“Have you ever looked at life, religion or the human condition and silently thought to yourself, “There has GOT to be more…” ?
Religious resolve branching from Cecessionism and Agnosticism to full-blown Atheism often began in a Christian upbringing abruptly halted by unfulfilled expectations of God. Questions like, “If the God of the Bible is truly “God” then why are there starving children in Africa…?”, or “Why, when I did everything I knew to do, did God not come through for me…?” or “How is it, if God is good, that evil so triumphs in the earth…and furthermore how does His “will” even make sense in the midst of such apparent chaos?”
Many times the perceived inconsistency between what we have been taught is truth and what we have contrarily experienced is the catalyst for diminished faith if not a loss of faith altogether… But what if what you have been told and have accepted as “Truth” is only a partial truth? Or what if what you have ultimately rejected as a “faith fairytale” was based upon incomplete information? What if, in that faith defining moment when your heart cried out “THERE HAS GOT TO BE MORE!” you were right and there actually IS an answer for what you were told simply had to be accepted as “the will of a Sovereign God”?!
Through these pain filled paradigms and inconsistent experiences, Quantum Christianity answers the question, “What if there IS more…?” and provides the reader with new perspective, making it possible to BELIEVE AGAIN!”
Combining science and theology, my vision for this book is to inspire those who have, at one time had faith in God and lost it or at least questioned it (due to unresolved life events or questions contradicting their expectation of God or the Bible) to become open to the possibility of believing again through the presentation of new evidence surrounding their faith-altering event or processes. – No small feat there huh…? Yet, probably applicable (in some capacity) in the life of every person reading this now.
I didn’t write this book to “write another book”…I literally felt like it was a mandate that I could not shake and I knew from the beginning that what was placed in my heart with this project was SO MUCH bigger than me.
I have shed more tears than I could count and on two different occasions I have literally wept asking God if there was someone more competent to birth this message while crumbling up and tossing out hours of work after rereading what I wrote & knowing it did not articulate the depth of importance that I felt the subject matter demanded. I mean let’s be honest, I’m presenting content that may be the catalyst to restore someone’s hope and faith in God, by addressing HARD questions with more than the traditional, “It’s just God’s will…Like it or lump it…” response.
The Reason You Are Reading This…
Recently, I had a conversation with a friend whose input both humbled and challenged me:
“Aaron, there are a lot of people who believe in you and what God has placed in you! They would sincerely desire to be a part of the impact of the vision God has given you for this book… But they won’t understand the need or the opportunity if you don’t make them aware of it…”
As I’ve weighed my friends input, and as uncomfortable as it makes me, I’ve concluded that she’s right. I’ve spent a majority of my life supporting and building other ministers visions both with my time and resources. Years and uncountable hours volunteered, multiples of tens of thousands of dollars sown, several cars, two motorcycles, expensive musical instruments, valuable firearms, purchased meals, gas spent traveling & miles placed on my personal vehicles, have been sown into lives and ministry without ever looking back…many times when I couldn’t afford on paper to do it but knowing that if God was leading me to invest, I couldn’t afford NOT TO do it – the way I’ve always looked at it is, if God asked me for it…He got it…PERIOD! I don’t say all that to brag or somehow validate myself, only to say, “I’m good soil to invest in”.
If you know me, you know that investing in people is a lifestyle for me—I live to give and nearly every day of my life is spent investing in someone else somewhere. Yet, I have struggled with admitting when I have a need myself & receiving from others. But I do.
Still, what I have learned from giving is that so often it is the key to a breakthrough! Which is why I have referred to this as an “opportunity”. I know that when God asks for something there is a reason in it for the one receiving and the one giving!
How Can I Help?
At this point, it looks like I am going to be self-publishing the book and this is no small financial task. Between the editing, cover design, layout design, printing, marketing/post publishing events, and inventory, the cost is significant. — I’ve already signed a contract & begun editing with a very competent editor with multiple New York Times best sellers under her belt.
I’m shooting for excellence on this & my current goal is to raise $20,000 (If that seems excessive to you, understand I’ve self-published before over a decade ago and spent half of that doing all the work & financing it myself).
I sincerely believe that raising this amount is not out of the realm of possibility and the support will be there. I’m not limiting my faith in any regard and believe that there may even be someone out there who can cover the entire amount with a single check… If you can, ask God if you are supposed to.
I’d ask all of you to prayerfully consider investing in the impact of this project and ask God if you should be a part of it.
I’m confident that Quantum Christianity: Believe Again is going to be published and God is going to provide my needs whether you personally contribute or not, BUT I also believe it is important to offer an opportunity for you to be an integral part in the ministry that goes forth and the lives that are influenced because of your investment in them.
***Please, whether you choose to invest financially or not, keep me, this book and those who will be ministered to by it in your prayers. I covet your prayers more than anything else… As we seek first the Kingdom of God over this project. I’m convinced that our combined prayers will open the doors for everything else to be added! —Thank you in advance!
