Xulon Press author James F. Hassinger's new release, Sea of Deception (paperback, 978-1-60647-365-8; hardcover, 978-1-60647-414-3), tells the story of a young World War II Christian naval officer who encounters the essence of the mystery of modern Babylon. In this whimsical story of romance and adventure, the characters learn that the interests of the country are sometimes defined by the objectives and the tension between political and economic forces. And, says Hassinger, the novel paints the new world order in terms of the self-serving interest of political and economic cabals.
Says Hassinger, "Overwhelmed with sensory overload and media complacency, we in the twenty-first century often accept the status quo without critically examining the history, legitimacy, and policies of the public and private institutions that define the norms of society. Our culture has (also) been partially defined by the historic interaction among economic, political, and religious groups that collectively are the predecessors to the Babylon of Revelation."
As an engineer and a retired college professor, Hassinger has pursued an active interest in understanding the historic and contemporary forces that shape our society. The Hagerstown, Maryland, resident believes connoisseurs of adventure and romance, political conservatives, and readers who are interested in the Babylon spoken of in Revelation will find this story exciting and educational.
