God of Chaos by R.M. Strong

In the lush and verdant land of Khemet, an ancient royal returns after a lifetime away. He brings with him a new god and the worst chaos the land has seen since the beginning of time. Young King Men-Kheper-Re is the only one on earth able to convince the gods to stop the wanton destruction of the land, but is unwilling.

Not even Hapiseneb, the young king’s most trusted advisor, is able to persuade him to allow this new god’s only request. A god himself, Men-Kheper-Re instead chooses to engage this newcomer in a battle of wits and wagers, choosing instead to replay the same contests fought millennia ago.

Everyone in the land of Khemet suffers from the gods’ battles. Far away from the palaces and politics, Yered, a foreigner, hears about this god of his ancestor–this god his fathers forsook that had promised them everything before abandoning them to slavery. The ancient royal promised a land flowing with milk and honey, but all Yered can see is mud and straw.

He now finds himself trying to do the same for two men who lived generations before his own.After returning from a short trip to Espinola with his cousin he feels certain they’re close to finding pieces of what Jeremy Delahass wanted them to. Like his cousin, he believes whatever it is, isn’t good. When his mother discovers it completely by accident in her search for another piece of their heritage, it turns out to be worse than he expected. But what concerns him more is his suspicions that his mother is hiding something from him. Something he feels certain has to do with the secrets Jeremy Delahass left behind for them to find. For the moment he’s more than willing to wait until she’s ready to tell him but he can’t help but wonder…and worry. Like his cousin, Jase Delahass is determined to uncover all that Jeremy Delahass left behind for future generations to find. For him it’s no longer out of a sense of duty. It’s become personal. And knowing his cousins as well as he does, he knows he’s not alone in feeling that way.So far everything they’ve found has filled in gaps of information they hadn’t known about. He has a feeling as the pieces become more difficult to locate it could only mean one thing. And as he prepared himself for what they might find he knew too it wasn’t just enough to know there was a puzzle they were meant to put together. It was all about finding the pieces. In the middle of the twenty-first century Jeremy Delahass came from out of nowhere much as history decreed his ancestor did some two hundred years before him.

Jeremy had never been driven to right all wrongs, to speak the words of the voiceless, to be the one who pushed until promises made were kept. And he’d never felt the need to sit in the center of power. But he did all those things. Jeremy Delahass did all that he wouldn’t have otherwise because of those who had dreamed of doing so, for those who did have visions of all that could be, who had been driven to right all the wrongs…but couldn’t. Their lives had been tragically and violently cut short.In fulfilling what they were no longer able to, Jeremy Delahass became a hero to scores yet was also reviled by many who resented the changes he’d fought for.

Children of the Magi: A Sacred History of the Kurds and the Persians by Christopher Crossan

Few societies on earth are as privileged as the Kurds and Persians. Unlike other nations and continents, the people living in Mesopotamia, the Zagros mountains, and Persia have witnessed some of the key historical events affecting all humanity which were recorded in the sacred writings of the Jews. These include the dispersion of Noah’s grandchildren, the building of the tower of Babel, the deportation of the Jews, the arrival of the prophet Daniel, the rise of Queen Esther, the commissioning of Ezra the high priest, and the visit of the Magi to Bethlehem. Four Medo-Persian kings – Darius, Cyrus, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes – are mentioned in these writings. Furthermore, the primeval events of history took place in Mesopotamia, including the creation of Adam and Eve, the garden of Eden, the fall of man, early human civilization, and the great flood. Sadly, today’s Kurds and Persians know little of their sacred history. This book is an attempt to re-introduce them to their rich inheritance, namely, the revelation of the Most High God, and to enlighten readers from other cultures who would also like an encounter with the central character of human history.
