The Face Of God Among Us
How the Creator Educates Humanity
A fresh perspective on religious history that explores the prophets of the past and offers new insight into the relationship between God and humankind.
The Face of God Among Us is an examination of religious history that aims to find out exactly who the founders of the great religions of the past were and what their role has been in the development of human society. Author John Hatcher looks at the lives and stations of the Prophets of the past - Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Jesus Christ, Muhammad, the Báb, and Bahá'u'lláh - and asks: Who exactly were these exalted beings? Were they ordinary humans, temporarily inspired by God? Are they God incarnate, as some believe? Or are they a different category of being altogether? In the course of his investigation, Hatcher uncovers a pattern in religious history that seems to hold the answers to all these questions. In doing so, he offers a new insight into the method by which the creator educates humankind, and provides us with a fascinating perspective about our existence on this planet.
