From the Publisher
"The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven." John Milton, PARADISE LOST
In the beginning, the Church ruled all the Spheres of the Apostles. But that was millennia ago, before the origins of this massive, artificial realm were forgotten. Now, drought, plague and war afflict the Spheres that make up the world of Man, fragmenting society into antagonistic sects that carry out ruthless pogroms.
A young orphan, Thomas, is thrust into the midst of this upheaval and embarks on a journey to the highest of all Spheres, Heaven. As he struggles through his chaotic, crumbling world, Thomas witnesses cruelty and violence beyond measure-and chances upon unexpected moments of courage and selfsacrifice. In this turmoil, his belief becomes doubt as he is forced to make soulrending choices between what his faith tells him he should do, and what he must do to survive.
THE BOOK OF THOMAS: HEAVEN is the unflinching, deeply affecting tale of the battle that reason and religion wage for a boy's soul.
