Diane Olsen, Author Presents Her New Book Release Titled; ANCIENT WAYS: The Roots of Religion . . . . .
ABOUT THE BOOK:
“In order to enjoy this book, you may have to suspend current beliefs, since some of the concepts may seem quite foreign at first. Hopefully, you will find precious gems to take with you.”
What if monotheism always existed, and revelations were given to all human forms. There are hints to that effect. We should not assume primitive peoples were not smart enough to grasp the concept of a single Creator!
Too often we tweak religion to reflect our personal thoughts, rather than dealing directly with the Word of God. Today monotheism is represented by at least nine living faiths, yet praying to God alone is not enough, for many. Instead, we pray to Prophets, angels, saints, ancestors, deities, and the universe.
This creates a chain of “Paths” and “Ways” which become stained by human desires for control and material benefits. And as darkness and materialism overtake one Faith, another is born, through the intervention of the Holy Spirit, clothed in a different form, with a new name, and very familiar teachings.
Monotheism can be visualized as a chain linking prehistory and history, entwined with human additions, wisps and twists that produce an undulating, ultimate Yin and Yang. This constant interaction of complementary, as well as conflicting, forces and energies, exhibits both organic unity and dynamism ( various theories or philosophical systems that seek to explain phenomena of nature by the action of force) – even war. Those who suspect there is a unified core of basic beliefs should enjoy Ancient Ways.

5-STAR AMAZON BOOK REVIEW: “Totally encompassing the history of the world’s religions.,” -September 25, 2016
Ancient Ways: The Roots of Religion (Kindle Edition)
I found myself lost in this book, not a negative, the history and the evolution of man was very well stated and provides documentation for the statements. It delves into zombies, white witches, Jewish God, Islamic Allah, Buddha, Osiris, and every form of Diety that has been worshiped and found through verbal and written histories.
The ancient ways connect astrology, alchemy, and all other esoteric practices. The book of Enoch in the Apocrypha tells of the giants that inhabited the world before the great flood. This is carried through in other religious documents of the time. Learning about the Priest, Ram was a new and fully invigorating story of earth’s early man and their desire to move past a belief in nature.
They began with priestesses and the chapters on Rams dreams, writings and memories is so thought provoking and insightful. It was new material for me and I was in awe of his place and time in history. I had heard of Cherchen man before, but to read of their belief system and their history was so enlightening. Rama took away the sacrifices and brought about praise. All because of yet another dream. I can not stop reading this book., Each page is filled with unknown religious histories.
This book will provide you a glimpse of each of the main religions of the current people and the original people. I will keep this as a reference because it encompasses so much information, I can’t retain it all. IT is a book to absorb and retain for reference! Very well researched and written. . . .
