Publisher's Summary

Never before has this country indeed this world faced such a need for a book that unites people, a book that reassures those disillusioned by faith that they can navigate their way back to God and even experience a profound spiritual awakening. For author and entrepreneur Steve McSwain, such an epiphany transformed his life.

In The Enoch Factor, readers discover a kindred spirit in an author who understands how religion can subvert a spiritual life. His story will help them navigate their own spiritual journeys. More than a personal odyssey, The Enoch Factor is also a testimonial to the innate dangers of fundamentalist thinking. It is a persuasive argument for a more enlightened religious dialogue in America, one that affirms the goals of all religions guiding followers in self-awareness, finding serenity and happiness, and discovering what the author describes as the sacred art of knowing God.

Unapologetic and moving, McSwain's take on The Almighty is sure to ignite spirited debate. Full of wisdom, humor, and truth, The Enoch Factor bridges the gap between secular and Christian book titles on spirituality, setting a new standard in both.

Great Book Needing a Different Title

I connected with this book on so many levels but I would never have picked it up without prodding from a friend because of the title. Enoch is a hidden figure most have never heard of and the book isn’t about Enoch. That said, I have invited others to read it. It is a healing balm for many who have journeyed out of narrow views of religious faith to a more inclusive view of the world. As the Dali Lama said, “When there is peace among religions there will be peace in the world.” McSwain points us in that direction.

Another Slick Talker!

We all have our crosses to bear and to find our way out of the struggles of daily life to reach for ourselves. So I found listening to his journey more of the same I have heard from others of his persuasion. I am happy for you and yourself discovery and awareness but what I expected to hear about in this book was Enoch not another story of how you arrived at your enlightened condition.

"To thine own self be true."

Everybody should have this book. Without self awareness, there is no integrity. Just do it!

An Opinionated work. scattered and Unfactual.

Comprises the writers assumptions which he bases on his own lifes experiences and although asked his audience to keep an open mind he himself is closed to certain fundamental truths that he guides the readers mind rather then allowing it to remain open.
An eloquent writing and the reading is easy on the ear, while still provoking many aspects of this so profound topic, the writer sticks to facts as closely as possible without being offensive to anyones faith.
I however beg to differ as i absolutely do not believe that worship of all gods lead to the one God. The Bible, being Gods communication to His Physical Creation is wholely revealing and not mysterious in the least except where one requires discernment to understand certain symbolic events which had to be as they have several fulfillments over varying times and geographies. The Spirit being a real and existing life form. To comprehend the person of God is as fathomless as understanding the extremities of existence itself. It is enough that we know He exists and is a real being, this beingbthe animorphisim as communicated by Himself to the prophets of old and this being recorded once for all time. To the making of many books there is no end and the reading of which is futility. A living slave has been provided to make clear the knowledge that feeds our spirit. Mans philosophy and worship of the fallen is what has led us to the poor state were in today.
Thank you.
