GEORGE M GROW
Reading that has something of everything: Gravity, humor, effervescence and view.
Wald is a race against time, an old magician, the Rationalists, the Prince, the Leader of the Free Arab Tribes, the Pearl of the Orient and the most sought-after terrorist in the world, the late Mr. Osama bin Laden for the key of the world.
INCLUDED: SELF-STUDY-COURSE The postmodern or western islam THE EASY WAY FOR BEGINNERS
The story contains a brisk but carefully considered outline of postmodern theology as developed by Grow as part of his "Scientific Integrism", this time, within the Islamic tradition and context, but is not unquestionably accepted in the literary text. This work stands in a line and dialectic especially with both modern Islamic existentialism and, on the other hand, with Hegel, Marx and Heidegger, but goes far beyond them in the sense of "Integral Islam" or "Existential Metaphysics". Remarkable and historically of high relevance, because until then, there was no intact worldview, neither a generall nor an Islamic one, with reference to banal terms like "spirituality", "religion" and "transcendence".
sociological significancE: The two-way Inclusion
Migration offers the possibility of intercultural exchange and learning. It can significantly increase the integrity of migrants and the stablished population. International studies clearly show that atheism and fundamentalistic fatalism are essential factors in the genesis of diseases and undesirable social behavior and conflicts. "Wald - The Messenger" is the first integral interface at which denominational and non-denominational Moslems on the one hand and Christian ... as well as atheistic and agnostic worldviews can orientate and mutually enrich and expand at their common intersection: the equivalence of scientific experiment and religious cult which does not require a denomination or an ideology.
In his magnum opus, Grow proceeds from the assumption that even at the beginning of the Third Millennium, the perennial questions, such as the meaning of life, the soul and the nature of God but also questions about society, individuality, history and the state are still open.
Liberated from the zeitgeist, escaped from a pointless life of parties, sex and drugs, the double lottery grand prize winner Wald Whittman follows an amazing series of coincidences to his uncle’s estate, where he goes to recover, on to India and into the far north of Kashmir, where everything which was revealed to him in the loneliness of his uncle’s estate at the Grossrussbach coalesces and turns into an enduring lesson. Is he really the long-awaited prophet that people think him to be? Will the angel appear on the stroke of midnight to prove his authenticity? For Wald, prophets, magic, angels and an Allah who exists outside our world are all nonsense. The fanatical terrorists who have imposed a fatwa on his friend Maher and are hot on Wald’s heels from Vienna to Kashmir, have a completely different notion about those things, as well as the nameless, irreligious narrator who Wald has asked to write down this story and intervenes in it actively. In the foreground of the full-fledged, witty, enlightening discourse about existence and appearance, in the company of the retired, comical, cold-blooded US Californian Craig McNealy, who accompanies the entire story, Wald meets an old magician, the Rationalist, the leader of the Free Arab Tribes, the most dangerous man and most sought-after terrorist in the world, the late Mr. Osama bin Laden, and in the care of the Prince and his mujahideen, the Pearl of the Orient, the love of his life, the one he has been seeking as long as he can remember.
The adventure, love and coming-of age novel Wald – Prophet at a Loss opens a risky Pandora’s box: no end of question that people today are afraid to ask, stream into the course of the story and condense into thrilling, amusing and amazing dialogues, revealing a new worldview and cosmology which seems not only to be more intact, but even more beautiful, meaningful and worth living. Can Wald, after Goethe’s Faust, Hesse’s Siddhartha, Castaneda‘s Don Juan and after everything we know, be an integral milestone of a new era, a new art and a new science? An extraordinary, multi-faceted, amusing read, nothing to shy away from, and a must in anyone‘s book collection.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Tina & Paul LONDON
These books are really entertaining and insightful. In our age, after all we have experianced, we didn't believe any more in a surprising revelation as we met in George Grow's Books of Life. They gave to us rung true and clear through the confusion and emptiness we felt. Thank you for reminding us that there are much greater "things" between the things!
George's reading was so positive and encouraging but also very honest and entertaining. I needed help with some decisions. I got what I needed and, what is more, I found the inspiration and the energy to go ahead with my decisions. It just also incidentally happened that everything I read in "Wald" came true! This kind of talent only appears in somebody sincere, kind and caring, just like Wald and George simply are.
I'm a photographer. I could imagine every scene in the book so clearly, as if I would look through my camera.
I'm an actor. If anybody wants to make a top-class movie containing both all sorts of tenderness and all sort of brutality, phone me! Wald - I absolutely want to act this man!
