return of the prophet
A modern-day Prophet is assassinated and his body cryonically preserved. Two hundred years later he is brought back to life, into a world now ruled by his own religion. Also alive at this time is his reincarnated self, unaware of his former existence and what destiny now has in store for him.
In the year 2034 the Prophet Tobias is assassinated. His life, and death, irrevocably change the course of human history. Loyal followers cryonically preserve Tobias's body in the hope of one day bringing him back to life. This is despite the first tenet of his philosophy asserting the renewal of life.
Two hundred years later the world is now ruled by Tobianism - the religion Tobias himself did not want. The Cardinal Hierophant Cairn is supreme leader of the Tobianist Church, and by extension, the world. Despite the many benefits this new world order has brought, revolution is in the air. Freedom and choice, after all, are core tenets of the Tobianist faith. Something the Church seems to have forgotten.
Into this world a team of scientists succeed in restoring life to the Prophet’s frozen body. But he is not the man history remembers. In fact he is hardly a man at all. In accordance with the first tenet, the spirit of Tobias has reincarnated and is now Rene - a young man completely unaware of his former existence or what destiny has in store for him.
In Return of The Prophet, Phil Moore begins an epic series of books that combine the classic hero's journey with science fiction, political revolution, and a philosophical core that goes beyond mere fiction.
