Darkness was now the element of my creation, as nurturing as the liquors of the womb. ,/b> from The Substance of God, A Spiritual Thriller, by Perry Brass Immortality anyone? This book may shock you, but you won't put it down until the end. Perry Brass has done it again combined politics, spirituality, and white-hot Eros in a non-stop action novel. From the kinky hook-up scenes of Manhattan, to the sex-soaked hamams of Istanbul, from sci-fi possibilities and biomedical ethics, to the sexual ethics of a married Christian fundamentalist on a gay sex spree he cannot stop, nothing compares to The Substance of God. What would you do with the Substance of God, a constantly regenerating, "self-cloning" material originating from Creation? The Substance can bring the dead back to life, but has a willful "mind" of its own. Dr. Leonard Miller, a bio-researcher secretly addicted to gay "kinky" sex, learned this after he was found murdered in his laboratory while working alone on this strange material. Once brought back to life, Miller must find out who infiltrated his lab to kill him, how long will he have to live again—and, exactly, where does life end and any Hereafter begin?
Miller’s story takes him from New York's secret underground sex scenes to the steamy all-male baths of Istanbul. It will deal with the longing for God in a techno-driven world. With the deep attractions of religious fundamentalism and the fundamentals of "outsider" sexuality, both as forms spiritual ritual and cosmic release. And Miller, the unbelieving, hard-core scientist, will be driven himself to ask one more question: Is our often-censored urge toward sex and our great, undeniable urge toward a union with God . . . the same urge? Find out the answers to all of this in The Substance of God by Perry Brass.
