LEITRIM, Ireland, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- In his new nonfiction, "Finding the Holy Grail" (published by AuthorHouse), debut author Sean Mac Aodhagain covers countless centuries of history surrounding the legend of the infamous Holy Grail and its major influences on the people of today's world.
Open to the first page and embark on a voyage on your own quest of discovery. Glimpse the mythical lives of some of the most renowned individuals who have helped weave the fabric of our cultural collective and ideas about heroes, salvation and even faith. To feel the symbolic, cultural and religious power of this divine relic and quickly become intoxicated with its historical relevance, one needs only read Mac Aodhagain's introduction, where he states:
Throughout all the quests, the searching, surmising, and guessing that has gone on since Jesus at the last supper surrounded by the apostles took the chalice ... in his hands and said, 'This is my blood, the blood of the new covenant, which will be shed for all men so that sins may be forgiven. Do this in memory of me.' The same cup that caught the stream of blood and water that ran from the side of Jesus on the cross and from then on became just a shadow, an icon of the death of Christ and the saving of the world. It was carried in safe keeping to all corners of the world to proclaim and to imitate the last supper so that the entire world would know and revere its power of salvation until the end of time.
Here's your opportunity to realize how the myths, the magic, and the strength of previous generations, evolving from the Romans to Medieval church to major motion pictures, have undoubtedly shaped all modern people, in "Finding the Holy Grail," a journey of the mind, spirit and of self-discovery. The unending search for the cup of cups continues even today, and as such, Mac Aodhagain's book will continue to awaken the minds of modern knights for centuries more.
The author writes under the name of Sean Mac Aodhagain, the Irish translation of his name, which means "John Son of Fire," the fire in this case being his writing. In addition to "Finding the Holy Grail," his first book, Mac Aodhagain has eight books of poetry ready for publication, covering topics including Celtic poetry, life experiences, wit, humor, love and even lost love. He also has been working on a collection of short stories that he plans on publishing in the near future. Aodhagain has been crafting his poetry and prose since he was only 9 years old, and after 40 years of studying the Irish and European history of the Celtic people (eight years of which was an in-depth study of Celtic Irish history), he is finally able to share his knowledge with the world in his amazing book, "Finding the Holy Grail."
