"A New Myth for America" by James Hilgendorf
"Every great civilization has had its own myth, a cosmic story of how we fit into the universe, a divine story of who we are and where we came from.
"Greece had Chaos and Chronos, Zeus, Athena and Hercules and a pantheon of other gods. Rome had Aeneas and Romulus and Remus. Western civilization had the Old Testament prophets and stories of the Bible.
"Now, though many in the world still hang on, these myths are either crumbling or gone to dust.
"Writing a new story of the cosmos, the revelation and revolution that has been waiting in the wings since the first dawn of the first sun of time now emerges.
"A great myth comes forth, bringing forth light and thunder upon a newly birthing world.
"It is the reason for the existence of the universe itself."
This is the fifth book by James Hilgendorf published by The Tribute Series. Previous books include "The Buddha and the Dream of America"; "The New Superpower"; "Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective";
"A New Myth for America" will be available shortly through bookstores everywhere and online. The e-book version is available now on Amazon.com at:
