For Immediate Release:
Outskirts Press of DENVER, CO announces the publication of a new book titled THE AFTERLIFE OF A RESTLESS SOUL: BUT IS GOD REALLY A WOMAN? by Princeton author, John F Brinster. This is his sixth book written in the past decade in the fields of science and philosophy relating to the human mind and behavior.
This book of fiction, science, and satire describes how the soul of a hard and fast atheist professor unexpectedly finds itself in heaven following his untimely death. It emphasizes needed change in world condition and, although laced with periodic elements of humor, it represents a review of atheist vision in a world of widespread conflicting religious beliefs. It emphasizes how religious differences have led to bitter conflict and suffering throughout the planet. This book is intended to encourage reexamination of religious teachings that often move vulnerable minds in unreal and imaginative directions. hopefully to lessen extreme and militant violence. The protagonist questions the evidence of the existence of a higher power that would allow such human behavior. Its controversial subtitle BUT IS GOD REALLY A WOMAN? is consistent with modern feminist movements. The professor considers fundamental female characteristics as a basis for increased feminine development and recognition, suggesting that if there were a god it must be female.
Brinster is a phi beta kappa, magna cum laude graduate of Princeton University in physics. A founder of several high tech companies, Brinster was member of a Palmer Physical Laboratory research team at Princeton University during wartime that helped create the atomic bomb and other new weaponry. He was assigned responsibility for missile instrumentation including the preparation and firing of five captured German V- 2 missiles for initial upper atmosphere exploration at White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico, working closely with Werhner von Braun, the father of space exploration.
At Princeton, he studied with many twentieth century Nobel physicists such as Einstein, Wheeler, Feynman, and Pauli. He was a neighbor of the Institute for Advanced Study for many years, having frequent contact with Einstein and Oppenheimer. In 2006 he made a study of the unique Einstein ideology published as an op/ed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as ALBERT EINSTEIN'S COSMIC REVERENCE in conjunction with the Einstein annus mirabilis anniversary.
His most recent nonfiction publication involved an analysis of the increasing worldwide secular trend in world development, entitled THE PRECARIOUS HUMAN ROLE IN A MECHANISTIC UNIVERSE (Xlibris). Upon retirement he promoted the study of the human mind at principal NJ universities as part of “the decade of the brain”. As a critic of imaginative thought and hearsay teaching as opposed to factual reality the need for change is inherent in his writing.
The Cackelry books, namely THE MAN WHO CREATED GOD (Xlibris) and THE ABDUCTION (AuthorHouse) have enjoyed popular following. They are based on the antics of Jeremiah B Cackelry III and his family, a fictitious professor with an Einsteinian mind and a confirmed atheist outlook, bound and determined to solve the ills of the world. In the new publication Cackelry unexpectedly finds himself in heaven where he attempts reorganization, the disposition of incoming souls, and appropriate response to requests from earthly sources. He reviews the cosmos and meets the many important souls of history looking to the proper judgment and disposition of souls. Becoming disenchanted with an endless life of perfection without emotion, he finds means to return to earth with a companion soul, Gabrielle, who had never completely made the transition to spirit.
