Humanus Diabolicus: A Postmodern Prophecy, Amazon Kindle Edition

Professor James Houk presents a dark gospel; the manuscript Humanus Diabolicus is entrusted to him by Avatar with an urgent plea to publish it as a warning of the end of humankind on this earth.
The result shows how the bad behavior of humans leaves the Great One (God) frustrated and apathetic. His ability to repress the nighmarish phantasmata, the somnia atrox, is compromised, and the terrifying creatures are released into human reality.
Only one person, Brendon Pruitt, can save the human race. Iconoclast, reluctant messiah, possessor of special gifts, Pruitt expores the nature of God and finds the future is not predestined but fluid and mutable.
“Dr. Houk has hit a home run that only someone with his background could have written. A scholar of anthropology and religion, he backs his premises with excellent data,making us think along with him.”– Dr. Charles Isbell, Prof. of Hebrew & Jewish Studies, Louisiana State University.
