Book Details

God and Man Love on the rocks

THE INDEPENDENT AUTHOR NETWORK AWARD - FINALIST

“On the Rocks,” was originally a phrase used for ships which ran aground and broke apart. But nothing could be a better metaphor to describe God’s relationship with man—hence the title of this book. For God created us with love and gave us His heart and soul: And God created Man in His Own Likeness; In God’s image created He him; both male and female. Alas, ever since Cain slew Abel, our relationship with God has been on the rocks. Throughout the Millennia, we have totally failed to act in accordance with His relatively few requirements. At best, we have ignored Him, but mostly mocked, disparaged, and treated Him with disdain. We have abrogated our responsibility, whether as an individual or nation, have engaged non-stop in the worst evil imaginable, causing Him untold suffering. Is it any wonder then, why God is estranged from us; why there is unrelenting havoc in our lives; why the world is falling apart; why suffering is prevalent at every level? Terrorism is a daily occurrence—no individual, no nation is immune! Isn’t it time we re-evaluated our behavior and altered it—to repair our relationship with God and gain His many blessings. But to understand how, we need to know something about God, something about ourselves, something about religion, and something about history. This book provides that understanding: It covers Scripture and science, God and His attributes, and Man—including his Free Will, Soul, Body and Mind. It addresses Good and Evil, and the nature of each. It reviews six major religions, and asserts at their core, they are virtually the same. We will learn that God desires very little of us—regardless of our culture, religion, or ethnicity. In simple terms, He wants us to be righteous, do justice, and love compassion. He also longs for a relationship with man, and we will document not only multiple examples of Divine Providence, but how to engage God real-time! You will find that while God may be ineffable, He is not unreachable! We assert He wants to do our Will, and only wishes to shower us with blessings—provided we deserve them. Finally, you will discover that one person—you—can save the world!

 

About the Author

Steven Rosner

Steven Rosner is a self-professed “Steve of All Trades.” Born and raised in New York City, he holds an B.S. from Brooklyn College and an M.A. in psychology from Hofstra University, but his early career was business and computer related. He was a former vice-president at Salomon Brothers during the mid-1980’s. In the late 1990s, Steve was an independent consultant, specializing in Y2K related issues. Moving to Iowa in 2000 he wrote several large scale works in the mental health field. His Guide To Mental Health & Developmental Disabilities In Iowa was the first ever Educational Manual for those with advisory or decision making authority in that arena. Steve has written articles about computers, Wall Street, and financial management and has two published short stories to his credit. He also produced, directed and starred in Grandmother Tales, four comic one-act plays of life in the depression, written by his father Nathan. In 2015, A Guide to the Psalms of David was released, featuring the first index categorizing each of the 150 psalms, and a heartfelt English translation. He says the best compliment he ever received was when a clinical psychologist told him, “Your rendition brought tears to my eyes. For the first time, I could feel David’s heart breaking.” In 2016, God is Good was published, and God and Man: Love on the Rocks was released in April, 2018. Steve lives in Brooklyn, with his talented wife Audrey, returning to NY from North Carolina in 2007 to take care of his dad and mom so that they could remain in their Manhattan apartment. Both have passed away, (mom at 97, dad at 106) but not until after they celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary! According to his wife, “Steve is a kind and caring person. He is a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He has a strong sense of honesty. He will not tell you what you want to hear, but will tell you what is in his heart. His soul abhors deceit, so he often gets depressed observing the lack of integrity in our culture.”
