Portrait of a Fallen Angel follows Frank Walker, a man who saw no use in worshipping a higher power. However, he acknowledges the power of religion and the way it could take hold over grand congregations.
Soon, Frank becomes known as the devil-worshipping prophet of a new religion. He gains a devoted following who await his every word. As he and his followers become further debauched by their demonic practices, Frank naively believes he can control the beast he has unleashed. However, Frank is in for an unfortunate surprise. Will Frank find control, or will all hell break loose? [close]

This is the book you want to read.
In your search for God you face at least a hundred questions about the reality of God. Your priests or parents tell you all kinds of belief stories. Although you are never satisfied with those answers, for lack of any alternatives, you go on believing them. Unlike your priests or parents, this book dares to tell you the truth simply as truth.
You have heard a lot about yoga. Some of you may practice yoga. You might have read many books on yoga. Those books on yoga teach you what is yoga or how to do yoga. This book is about why yoga. Do you want to know why yoga? This is the book for you.
Many times in your life you might have wondered why there are so many religions. If there is only one God then why so many teachings and contrasting points of views on God? This book rationally explores and explains the need or reasons for multiple teachings.

You want to know about your own body, your brain, your mind, and how your perspective of life is related to the reality of existence. Often you realize what you think or what you believe is very different from what is actually happening in the real world. You never found a way to explore the reality beyond the functioning of your brain or mind. This book rationally explores the nature of your life and how your body, brain, and mind work to create that life of illusion or reality in you.
You have heard or read about mindfulness, self, consciousness, awareness, nirvana, samadhi, bhakthi, devotion, surrender, spirituality etc. You want to get to the bottom of these words and get a scientific or rational perspective on the meaning of these words. This book is for you.

When it comes to religion and God this book is about what, how and why.
When it comes to your life as a human being this book is about who, what and why.
When it comes to your existence as a human being living on this tiny little planet called earth this book is your window to the truth of existence and your relevance to this vast life of existence.
You need not label you. Even if you did, that is fine.
You may come in any hue or color—a Christian, a Hindu, an atheist, a liberal, a conservative, a Marxist, a black, a white, a Latino, a man, a woman, an American, an African, a CEO, a homeless, a geek, a dunce or any identity you have given to yourself or the world has given to you. The bottom line is you are a human being. You cannot escape that truth. You cannot bury the inviolable equality that truth brings.
Being a rational and intelligent human being why don’t you explore the truth of your own existence? So come on, let us explore the rational God.
