What if our Sun is not just a light bulb in the sky that happens to radiate the light of life and hold a family of planets in orbit? What if stars are not just random balls of plasma accidentally forging all the elements from simple hydrogen? What if the pagans were right and the church wrong about the nature of our local star? What if humanity is but a spark of existence in a living Universe?
It was not science that burned all thought of a living Sun out of our culture but the church. Science maintains this religious taboo out of habit, not the scientific method. Yet as cosmologist Carl Sagan put it, "Our ancestors worshiped the Sun, and they were far from foolish…. If we must worship a power greater than ourselves, does it not make sense to revere the Sun and stars?"
Sun is not a delusion and is the light of our life. Gregory Sams’ book lifts the lid on a subject supressed for centuries, looking at it in the light of science, logic and common sense. The implications are startling, revealing a Universe incorporating both intelligence and design without need of an Intelligent Designer.
For those who would tick the “spiritual but not religious” box, Sun of gOd provides easy-to-digest and thought-provoking insights into what it’s all about.

Did you know that there is a “magnetic portal” as wide as the planet that connects Earth to Sun? One end extends from Sun’s corona, the other from Earth’s magnetic field and they join together every eight minutes. NASA believes that tons of high-energy particles are exchanged when they meet in this “flux transfer event.”
As Sun turns, a solar wind of charged particles spirals into a giant magnetic bubble that embraces the entire solar system, shielding the planets from over-exposure to high-energy cosmic rays.
Solar scientists have identified six distinct layers to our local star, some of which rotate at different speeds around each other. They estimate that it could take new-born photons up to a million years to pass through Sun’s layers, changing from lethal gamma rays to the gentle light of life in the process.
Does all this seem like accidental random activity, a lucky light bulb in the sky, reacting solely to the laws of physics?
When we talk about the “big picture” our local star seldom enters the conversation, though it is undoubtedly the most important element of our existence. Many consider little planet Earth to be a living entity, Gaia, and many invest goddess spirit in the Moon. Yet for centuries any such associations with Sun have been erased from our culture as thoroughly as victors delete the history of those they vanquish. Sun of gOd brings our solar benefactor out of the closet and in from the cold.
Our own consciousness is widely regarded as the greatest mystery of our existence. We know it is energetic and weightless but cannot fathom the how, what or why of it. Is it far-fetched to consider that the complex energetic entity that powers the life of every living thing might know life itself?
Yet as important as our local star is to us, it is just a bright spark in one of countless billions of galaxies. The concept of stellar consciousness and its inevitable implications change how we look at everything, from quantum particles to grains of sand, weather systems to galaxies.
Sun of gOd makes sense of our world in a way that has not been done before, whilst saying little that has not been expressed or understood before. It does so without rejecting science or relying on revelation. Its novel and refreshing outlook makes deeper sense of information and traditions we already have to hand. Readers are not asked to learn new things, but to look at them through fresh eyes.
Without teaching or preaching, without condemning or acclaiming, Sun of gOd will change forever the relationship you have with your world.
