The Books Containing
the Chronicles

Introduction to the First Four Books

And man was formed out of the dust of the Earth.
And man breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.
And man became a living soul.
And this happened on the seventh day
of the first month of a long lost year.

Now man would develop in spirit as well as wit. And spiritual leaders and holy teachers would educate their fellow men about the soul. And they would bring to Earth a light different from the physical light of flames, stars and lamps -- they would bring to Earth religious light.
      Now mark these words: there is a difference between scientific light and holy light, for science enriches the mind but only religion can stir the soul.22 And those who confuse the two will have tormented lives.
      As for religion, it began and then evolved quite naturally. In the beginning, fire was a mystery for man. And so eventually man assigned a spiritual significance to fire. And thus was born the god of fire. And the rising and the setting of the Sun also was a mystery for man. And so eventually man assigned to Sun a spiritual significance. And thus was born the god of Sun. And likewise did it happen for the Moon. And man employed and needed deities to explain the movement of the clouds and the stirring of the wind. And soon were gods of many kinds.
      And eventually churches, temples, mosques and synagogues were built so that man would have a house of worship, where any man could pray.
      Now there appeared upon the land called Earth four great religious leaders.23 They were Moses, Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad. Here are the stories of these holy ones.
