Description

The God Franchise dares to offer refreshing answers to the big questions of life and God and the universe in a friendly, down-to-earth, thought-provoking, stimulating, entertaining yet practical way. You will clearly see why God exists, why the universe exists and most importantly, why you exist. You will get a clear understanding of the meaning of life and the Universal Laws that guide it. You will be astounded at the simplicity of the big picture, while recognising the profundity of this glimpse of the Truth. You will begin this journey of discovery in the timelessness before the universe began and will reach today, this moment in time, in a state of clarity about how to live your daily life with purpose and fulfilment. The subtle humour and many comments from left field conspire to keep you awake and interested, not to mention the destruction of old stereotypes and preconceptions. The book is written in way that will compel you to keep turning the page and reading on. This is not an academic work, but nevertheless is logical and specific. Vague new age concepts and woolliness are avoided as they serve no one. Little is sacred, except the hint of Truth that permeates the whole book. The God Franchise is original in that it offers the bridge between religion and modern spirituality. It puts the old teachings into a new light and context. It provides the aha moment that you have been seeking. It changes one's relationship with God and with one's fellow Man. It achieves this with lucidity, practicality and humour, not to mention love, respect and deep spirituality. This is a book for reading, for quiet contemplation, for discussion, and for living. It lends itself to being reread with interest and enjoyment. This book challenges you to give up concepts that no longer serve you. From the back cover: Do you ever wonder ... Who am I? What is my purpose in life? Why are things the way they are? What is the universe all about? Who or what is God? What is The God Franchise? And a Theory of Everything? Really? The God Franchise offers a compelling perspective that will help you to answer these questions . . . and many others you might have about your life. This is a book of deep spirituality written simply and logically, and tinged with a sense of humour. It can be read and reread and is guaranteed to provide you with fresh insight and understanding each time. The God Franchise is a book about God and the universe we live in. It is also a book about YOU your loves, your triumphs, your good and not-so-good actions, your fears, and your pain. You will uncover truths about who you are and the purpose of your life. In fact, it is a Theory of Everything! The God Franchise is a unique book. It is addressed to you, whatever your present beliefs and understanding of God and the universe. It is spiritual rather than religious, and builds bridges between your beliefs and others', whether religious, agnostic, atheistic, or spiritual. The God Franchise sets out to challenge and edge you towards uncovering your deepest personal reality. It is a practical book in many ways, yet, if you so choose, you don't need to do a thing. But, you will never be the same again ...show more

The most important question any of us can ask when wondering about the purpose of life, is "Who am I?". The God Franchise brings together all the theories about life in a very readable and clear manner. It enables the reader to gently step outside the confines of the usual way of believing and consider a wider perspective. The book explains theory and at the same time Alan makes it all personal. I experienced a growing sense of excitement as I was reading - a developing sense of knowing, of understanding who I am at a deeper level.show more

Alan Dawe's book will appeal to believer and non believer, to the novice seeking the purpose of life and the veteran seeker alike. Alan hasn't just written a book, he has crafted it like an artist. Initially, he presents a sketch of The God Franchise and then as the reader turns the pages Alan adds colour, shade, contrast, light and perspective; he adds depth and a simplistic, stunning beauty so that as the last page is turned the reader has revealed a masterpiece. Different readers will see different aspects of the masterpiece and they will perceive them through the veils of their religious beliefs, their education, their social mores and their personal opinions and biases. However, everyone who reads this book is really looking at the same thing, and over time you will hear something, or read something that will remind you of one of the gems you read in The God Franchise and you will gravitate back and want to read it again; you will gravitate from the point within you that defies intellectual input, from the point that is wanting to push away the veils. The second time around will seem like the first time around. It will be new again, and you will discover deeper truths, a deeper understanding so that when you finish the masterpiece will glow a little brighter as you reveal a little more. On the third reading you will take notes, or if you are like me you will underline, asterisk and use exclamation marks to highlight the parts that are important to you. With each reading a veil will thin, or the veils could be removed altogether and you will be left with the simple beauty that is everything. Quite simply, Alan is pointing to you through the God Franchise and saying, You are the masterpiece.show more
