"The parameters of my existence had moved. I stood up slowly; a strange warmth was spreading from behind my navel, deep inside me. It moved through my skeleton, through muscles, into veins, to the extremities of my body. My scalp tingled, toes clenched and my fingers spread out as if the force coming from within was too much for them to hold."

A BRAND OF FAITH
MAY 5, 2021
Jack Bolden clings to the church to balance his lack of confidence and finds a home in the calm assurance of his Christian faith. A parish in Islington brings him emotional challenges for which he is ill-prepared and he flees as a missionary to Africa, where he finds a true raison d’être by merging Christianity with the local beliefs.
However, unforeseen circumstances lead to a destruction of the faith he has held for so long and he is forced to re-appraise himself and his beliefs. In the company of doctors for the mind, body and soul, Jack builds the fragile beginnings of new hope. While traveling and soul searching through North America and Europe, destiny throws him into the unexpected Tantric magic of a sexual union.
Will the cathartic metamorphosis restore his soul?
