From the author of The Scribe, The Soaring Spirit, Kolbe, and Land of Our Father comes a sweeping new novel that spans the turbulent years in Irish history – 1916 to 1923.

The 1916 Easter Rising wasn’t just a military rising, but a cultural revolution too.

The story also explores how the catholic church viewed the events of the day.

The Irreducible Primary: A Dialogue on Nature, Spirituality, and the Human Condition

An active cognizance of our influence on the big-picture flow of creation, in which we all participate, is the responsibility of every human being. It is only through this effort that we can understand those spiritual competencies that are most relevant to the critical cause-and-effect interactions that have the most sway over our existence.

So too is it incumbent on humans to embrace the concept of unconditional love, and to understand why we alone get to take the journey toward it. It is only in a space where spirituality is allowed to uncover our inner structure and dimensions of consciousness that we engage this important energy force.

The Irreducible Primary is an unapologetic examination of spirituality, nature, and the current state of human interaction. Here, spiritual seekers and religious types who’ve grown dissatisfied with religious dogma, along with individuals frustrated with governmental and political impotency, find fresh reason for hope.

Have you ever been sitting on the hood of a car, on a dark gravel road when heat lightning can be seen high in the late night sky. And, at the same time the Whippoorwill birds begin to sound off and the lightning bugs light up all around you, so many of them that you can see your friends face. All of that, while you listen to an eight track tape of some good rock and roll music.
