SALEMBURG — Jack Dawsey, a former Carteret County commissioner and a resident of Salemburg since 2005, and writing under the pseudo-name Hampton Brady, recently released his fifth book: Mazzaroth: 12-Signs Twelve Corresponding Events.
It is a 256-page perfect-bound with a religious and political spin. Using the scriptures and the known 36-constellations as a backdrop, Brady writes critically of organize-religion, modern-day politics, and the excesses of multi-national corporations.
Brady said the first-lot of 100 books is available through him. As a self-publisher, purchases can be made via his email firstname.lastname@example.org. The author agrees to autograph each copy, and to personally pay First-Class U.S. Postage to his customer.
After serving 36years in the Federal Aerospace Industry at Cherry Point, Brady retired to Salemburg with his wife. They have been married 50-years.
In comments about the book, the publisher wrote: “Brady’s readings of the 12-Signs in the Mazzaroth are fascinating. His 256-page paperback is a study of the original 36-constellations. His extractions are NOT a repeat or “do-over” of the Horoscope Signs found in many newspapers, or the Signs found in a Farmer’s Almanac. Rather, Brady separates myth from theology, and fact from fiction to assert the supernatural. According to him, the Signs in the heavens are a universal witness from God to mankind. They testify to divine providence and sovereign grace, and establish His prerogative in the consummation of all things on earth, whether good or evil.
A political writer and observer for more than 50 years, Brady challenges the reader. He takes the liberty in his prospective view to correlate the Signs with twelve intriguing world shattering and momentous events. They include, but not limited to the current political upheavals in world governments, and the corrupt financial manipulations of the plutocrats and oligarchs on Wall Street. He writes how some elements of organize-religion serve as incubators for religious apostasy, and how some churches are no more than echo chambers in which political operatives (right-wing and left-wing extremists) operate. The author lifts the veil of the church-rapture, Bible theorists to expose the foolishness (and in his opinion, the political danger) of their religious dogma. Finally, Brady asserts that corporate excesses are an integral part in the financial troubles and woes that plague the world’s leading economy. The author is not anti-God, but the book is critical of multi-national corporations, politics, and organize-religion. Brady says, “Religion is cheap. It can be purchased with a paltry tithe. But the price that Christ paid for salvation was not cheap. Like the conflict of Zuben al Akrab. It comes with a great price and conflict.”
