Teacher and author James Rourke’s new book blends history, philosophy, fantasy and spirituality to do more than entertain teen and adult readers. He wants his visionary fiction to stimulate contemplation.

PRLog (Press Release) - Mar. 22, 2011 - History teacher Lorraine Dooley found "The Eternal Struggle: Two Worlds, One War" motivated her to “delve deeply and question my own convictions and belief about life. Ideas lingered long after I finished the last page.” Just the response James Rourke wanted when he created the modern myth bridging Limbo and Earth, Heaven and Hell.

“I wanted readers to connect with historic figures in an exhilarating way,” Rourke explains. “Blending the elements of classic fantasy with psychological and ethical issues delivers life lessons as it entertains.”

Rick Fess of spiritualfictionbooks.com hailed the powerful combination as “interesting and compelling, regardless of whether you believe in spirituality or the afterlife.”

James Rourke, author of "The Comic Book Curriculum" and "From My Classroom to Yours", teaches history and psychology at the Norwich Free Academy in Norwich, CT. "The Eternal Struggle: Two Worlds, One War" is the first book of The Eternal Struggle trilogy.

Book Description
Niccolo Bontecelli and Seamus O’Malley thought their afterlife would simply be a peaceful journey to Heaven. Little did they suspect their path would lead through Hell! Satan, seeking a final victory in his eternal struggle with Goodness, strives to gain dominion over both the spiritual realm of Limbo and Earth. Hitler and Stalin are released from Hell with orders to bring havoc to Limbo and manipulate the upcoming U.S. Presidential election.

Bontecelli and O’Malley battle evil with the aid of Abraham Lincoln, Stephen Biko and other historic figures. Can they save Limbo, Earth, and their own souls, or will Satan’s soldiers achieve their malicious goals?
