When the crack cocaine epidemic hit Detroit in the mid-1980, Moore like many of his peers turned to the church to avoid the onslaught, but when the Holy Ghost failed to protect him from drug related crimes and violence. He searched for an alternative form of spirituality. After overcoming homelessness, poverty and being diagnosed with the debilitating disease lupus, he discovered an ingenious way to connect to the Divine. By drawing upon Ancient Egyptian philosophy and Afro-spiritual practices, that gave him the tools to overcome his illness and greatly improve every aspect of his life. In this easy-to-read, simple yet motivational style memoir of self-discovery, Moore the son of a preacher explains how depression and despair led him to turn his back on God, but how anyone can rekindle this relationship by learning history, recognizing their ancestors, identifying with their archetypes or spiritual guardians, and acquiring knowledge of self.
