VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "Forgotten Word," the popular, controversial book by Sam Jane Brown, anticipated the incipient Christian end-of-times struggle emerging from the current American electoral meltdown. With proto-fascist Donald Trump facing off Hilary Clinton, the stage is set for the constitutional equivalent of the War of Gog and MaGog and the second coming of Jesus Christ – except, according to "Forgotten Word," Jesus will return as a woman.
"People keep saying this American election is unprecedented. Well, it is…" said Brown. "Just not in the way that most people think. This is about far more than just who will be the President of the United States. As my book portends, this race is about nothing less than the future of humanity. The stakes are immense. The danger is real."
Astute readers of the book will notice similarities between the murder mystery plot and the current drama going on in the US electorate. As many experts predict, the election could easily end up with an as-yet unknown third candidate, such as former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, throwing the election into a three-way tie. Such a tie would have to be resolved by the US Congress. In that setting, the forces of Christ and Antichrist would face off in a struggle that holds the fate of the Planet Earth in the balance. "The American legislature is divided between those who believe and those who don't. We should not be so naïve as to imagine that this contest is about anything less significant that the second coming of our Lord, or should I say 'Lady'?" asked Brown.
Set in a world of high intrigue in the church, Brown's novel begins with the murder of Catholic priests. The crime provides the catalyst to tell the story of the impending Second Coming. Zena McGrath, an international detective, is assigned the duty of solving the murders. Her investigation leads her to the Vatican, where she meets a mysterious priest. In New York, she becomes aware of an evil presence following her. Ultimately, she goes to the Holy Land as the perpetrators of the crime are revealed. The book culminates in a climactic Second Coming, in which the "Christ" figure is a woman.
The US Congress is 92% Christian, according to work done by the Pew Research's Religion and Public Life Project. However, that figure belies a major divide in actual theological beliefs. Democratic Party Representatives and Senators are more religiously diverse than Republicans. Twelve percent of Congressional Democrats are 12% Jewish. The Democrats also have two Buddhists, two Muslims, one Hindu and one unaffiliated member. Among 301 Republicans in the 114th Congress, Representative Lee Zeldin of New York is the only non-Christian. He's Jewish. In contrast, 44% of Democrats are Protestant, 35% Catholic and 1% Mormon.
"We're going to see who is really on the side of Christ when this election gets thrown into their house," Brown added. "I don't know if people are really ready for what's coming. Whomever they elect is going to have his or her finger on the nuclear button – ready to bring about the destruction of the world for the sake of the coming Rapture. Ready for Her."
Readers have praised "Forgotten Word" not only as a gripping mystery but also as a thought-provoking read. The book has raised angry denouncements from certain religious voices, who complain that it is sacrilegious to consider that Jesus will return to the world as a woman.
