MECHANICSBURG, Pa.¬†—¬†Sunbury Press has released author A. Gimbernat’s latest book “The Lust for Reverence – Undressing the Human Being to Reveal How Heroes and Gods Are Made and Demolished.”

About the Book:
omslag_Opmaak 1Author A. Gimbernat reviews our distant past for the answer to the ultimate question of human existence: Who created God? Gimbernat builds a record of deification from ancient rulers and gods to contemporary fascist dictators. He seeks a root cause to the need for such constructs in the natural world, and ultimately in genetics. Fans of Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion” will find this a nice extension to that work regarding the evolutionary origin of otherworldly powers.
