THE YAHWEH GENE is the first book in a series about the world as it will be in the not-so-distant future. After the planet has been ravaged by catastrophe, global societies have all suffered equally severely. All efforts are focused on water preservation, agriculture, medical care, and other basic necessities of life. Nineteen-year-old Emmanuel "Manny" Kohen is caught in this whirlwind of distress and limitation. After the events of Star Fall, which occurred 13 years prior to the start of this story, the vast majority of the still alive Remnants have either gravitated toward some form of spirituality, or far, far away from it; Manny is a part of the latter group. He doesn't see how, understand why, or believe that an all-knowing and all-loving Creator would allow such devastation and turmoil. However, some significant, undeniable, and personal events lead him to the thresholds of his belief, his sanity…and even his life.
