Books & Authors Feature Package

1. An Orthodox Author-Maybe The Next C.S. Lewis?

WHEATON, Ill., Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Christos Jonathan Seth Hayward is a genius. The opinion has been voiced in some high-IQ community circles that he is smarter than the average Nobel Prize Laureate. What he writes is fascinating. He wears many hats as a person: author, philosopher, theologian, artist, poet, wayfarer, philologist, inventor, web guru, teacher, and all of these feed into his writing. As far as talent goes, he has studied roughly half a dozen languages (excluding over a dozen computer languages). Hayward has won dozens of math awards, and as early as eighth grade studied calculus, wrote a four-dimensional maze, and ranked 7th in a nationwide math contest.
