Stephen Post, author of Why Good Things Happen to Good People and God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness will be at Mac's on Thursday, September 19th at 7 p.m.
As a teen at St. Paul's School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. God and Love on Route 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post's journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It's a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.
"You must be ready when you open this book. It's a microburst of searching faith in a God of Love (be alert for the 'blue angel') and a spiritual and intellectual stance that everything in the universe- you, me, crickets, galaxies, microbes, stars, life, death-is connected. For the author who shares his awakening with us, the 'blue angel' offers him not only comfort but the bracing challenge to love others with a generous heart way beyond self-aggrandizement. Or, simply put, as God loves. It takes a large and open heart to take in the invitation to faith of this vocation story. I'm more alive and alert now for having read it."
