Beskrivelse

The author gets drawn into a Clandestine Services investigation of the global religious organization called the New Church. He assists the CIA by revealing the inside workings and secret documents of this Christian sect. A unique software invention that can crack any password on earth makes him a key player in neutralizing the church organization and its ties to the Swedish and European neo-Nazi movement.At the same time this book depicts the author's spiritual search for inner meaning and purpose. In Denmark he comes across old teachings put to paper by Emanuel Swedenborg hundreds of years ago. In America he finds the spirit of freedom in the people, in Native American traditions, and in men's work. He gets ordained by the land, and then by the church. In Sweden he fights against religious conformity in the Swedenborgian church, a fight that he loses and then wins anyway in an amazing turn of events.

I was in a unique position.

I joined the New Church organization as an innocent new member, a seeker for truth. I was welcomed with open arms. The old folks shared their stories with me, what people had done, what ministers had said, why someone had left, or died.

When I expressed an interest in the priesthood, older ministers began to share their own stories. This time from the inside of the organization. I was after all a new soldier, carrying the hope of the future. In the theological seminary we were instructed how to interpret doctrine. The old ladies of Bryn Athyn gossiped about neighbors. College students talked about growing up here. In a men’s group I witnessed tales of in-family pain and abuse, shared in confidence. I sat in on board meetings and heard about land deals, donations, and powerful families that had their own agenda for the church. From the bishop we got the background on hirings and firings, divorces, rogue ministers who had not toed the party line. We listened to, but did not believe, reports from African congregations. There was the occasional suicide.

I got ordained and sent to Sweden. Now I had insight into the paperwork, the contracts, the long term plans. I had the keys to the doors and the passwords to the computers. I got copies of the financial records. My job required it. In the library I read ancient New Church magazines with some very strangely slanted articles in Swedish or Norwegian. Photos of men in uniforms.

I collected it all.

This would make a good book some day, I thought.

Here it is...
