Religion's Greatest Secret Exposed in Shadow of Light, a Challenging Memoir That Will Split the World of Religion Wide Open. Let the War Begin.
Los Angeles, CA, March 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Set in Los Angeles in 1993, Shadow of Light
opens with David, a newly divorced makeup artist, in the middle of a vivid dream. He wakes up feeling disturbed by this recurring dream but shakes it off and heads to the set of a commercial in Reseda. He is completely unaware that his world is about to be turned upside down.
Disconnected and strangely without remorse about the divorce, David finds himself at a coffee house in Long Beach contemplating an espresso and a flirtatious waitress when a beautiful man, Daniel, asks to join him. But Daniel is not what he seems. Despite self-doubt and confounding emotions, David allows Daniel to not only share his body and his heart, but also the stunning truth about man's connection to the divine, a truth so powerful that generations of clergymen have gone to great and tyrannical lengths to keep its existence a secret.
Beyond David's insecurities, his ongoing conflicts with his family over religion, and his surprisingly fulfilling relationship with another man, he cannot deny or dismiss the many truths Daniel shares with him or his own subsequent need to share these truths with the rest of the world.
With Shadow of Light, author David David Kernan courageously divulges what poets and philosophers, seers and prophets, have only hinted at throughout the ages. His intimate relationship with Daniel is vivid and thoughtful as his unrepentant and often lyric memoir defeats dogma and reduces every religion on the planet to myth.
"In the beginning," Kernan says, "knowledge of man's divinity was just part of his existence. But over time, that knowledge was secreted away and became a mystery. I wrote Shadow of Light to reveal the truth once more, to bring humankind full-circle so we can know ourselves again and realize that we are greater than religion has ever allowed us to believe."
