“Great book! Great insight! An amazing exploration of the human journey…”

 

This is a wonderful journey of the soul! It speaks to everyone in the present and the future and our role in achieving that future. The author has captured the issues we face and the solution to those issues. A book worth reading twice!

A mesmerizing tale of the journey of a man seeking answers to questions we all have. The use of a near death experience connects us all to the fragile life we live and yet the author spins a tale of a man searching for himself and his future. This book will make you think about the life we all live and how to live it better.

Great book! Great insight! An amazing exploration of the human journey caught up in our material world.

Captivating! Thought provoking yet joyous read!

Mesmerizing imagery! The reader is drawn into the soul and the challenges we all face through the vivid images of war, a peaceful homestead, community, near death experience, and self-sacrifice. Through these images we see the journey of a soul seeking answers to the challenges we face as individuals and the global family of humanity.

“The “Department of Truth” takes the imagination on a journey to exciting alternative worlds, while simultaneously delivering to the reader deeper messages of meaning. Useful messages, one searches for when traveling a conscious spiritual journey.”

The Story                  IMG_1571   IMG_1589

Jack Johnston is an ordinary, young Australian bloke with a seemingly ordinary life—until the day he feels a jolt, sees a bright light, and hears the words: The Department of Truth. He finds himself suddenly propelled on a mystical roller coaster ride through unfamiliar and magical landscapes, and begins to learn about life, people, and his own personal longings.

On his journey, he finds different kinds of people who have their own cultures and views of life. He also visits deeper realities in which he learns more about the nature of life. Cast here and there, Jack is challenged to learn and grow.

Join Jack on his crazy existential ride through life and meaning, with giants to talking doorways, new worlds and magic carpets. You won’t regret it

The Author                     Me_ Author

I loved writing this book, as just like someone reading it, I waited with baited breath for the next amazing place, image or concept that rose from the creative process. I have sought to share what I see and what I love, all in an adventurous symbolic story. The book comments on our current reality and looks forward to glimpses of what could be, while exploring the nature of existence and truth.

The Trilogy of The Department of Truth, grows with the second book “Expectations of Happiness”, and finishes with a mind warping crescendo in “The Halls of Certitude”. There is so much in these books that they bear reading a number of times, are worth a study of various parts and are good for discussions with others. When they get a hold of you they will call you back again and again.

The Department of Truth’s core theme is existential search for truth. The second book, “Expectations of Happiness”, concerns itself more with personal transformation, the reality of life and happiness. “The Halls of Certitude”, the third book, will deal with the collective journey forward, renewal of community and the unity of the human race.

I hope you enjoy “The Department of Truth”, and the whole trilogy. These books have much to give.

The Department of Truth (DOT) is a fantastic book that inculcates all features required in an adventurous, fantasy with a meaningful story. The author takes you to this journey through words, creating an imagery that mesmerizes the reader, making you feel part of that story. Although it is situated within the Australian context, it relates to people everywhere. That’s the “MAGIC” of this book! I have read it a few times again and again; and every time the book draws me even more in and the real world loses its appeal. I simply love DOT!…

I am now anxiously waiting for the next book EOH, which seems to be DOT’s continuation, as there are some mysteries associated in the story that I think would be revealed in it! DOT a ‘Must’ read!

Fantastically unusual!
If you enjoy adventure, soul, and the land, you’ll love this book.
