Reincarnation: An Historical Novel Spanning 4,000 Years by Michael J. Lowis
Have you thought that you have had a previous existence? What if you awoke one morning and discovered that you had been transported back 4,000 years to an earlier life? This is what happens to Mel, a modern-day architect who is shortly to be married. He returns to his previous incarnation as Melchizedek, a warrior, king, and high priest who is briefly mentioned in the Bible. Although he considers himself to be ill-equipped to succeed in this role, guidance is always there when needed. From time to time Mel returns briefly to the present, and eventually has to choose between the two existences.
Very little is known about Melchizedek, but his name crops up in a few ancient texts. This is psychologist and theologian Michael J. Lowis’ sixth book, and his first that is not total non-fiction. It is nevertheless extensively researched to make the narrative as historically authentic as possible. In his travels, Mel visits the fabled Garden of Eden, the ancient city of Salem, and even heaven itself. Readers are free to regard the whole account as pure fantasy – or maybe it will provide some food for thought. Hmm, could it actually have happened?
