      Blue Corn Messiah is a novel about the resurrection of the messiah movement among the Native Americans. It has mystery, travel, romance, tragedy and cultural and religious intrigue. The saga begins when a single Native American Lawyer, a widowed Christian Lawyer and a single Jewish professor of Aztecan Studies all have phenomenal experiences the very same night. Their "dreams" lead them to meet in Colombia, So. America, where dark influences from an ancient order, called the Dark Oath, overtake them. Two of the three are kidnapped and find solace in each other, while the other escapes to Uzbekistan to find a strange old Moslem patriarch for guidance he didn’t expect. All three, after temporarily outsmarting the lethal forces of the Dark Oath, secretly re-enter the United States through powerful influences of another ancient holy order, called the "Sacred Circle," to the four-corners area of the United States where the promised "White Pahana" (the Native American Messiah) and his spiritual messengers prepare them and the Blue Corn People for their messianic intercession. The resurrection of the Native American Messiah movement – squelched by a federal massacre of American Indian men, women and children at Wounded Knee in 1890, is about to be resurrected and powerful dark forces want it stopped.

    Love, danger, spirituality and powerful political and religious institutions mingle as the greatest spiritual revolt since Moses begins to take shape. The peoples of the "One" God discover a pattern in ancient tablets, which reveals incredible and timely discoveries about the coming Messiah and the need for people to integrate their hopes and faith for the common good of mankind – before corruption and pride bring the earth to again close its doors on its human children as prophesied by Hopi legend and ancient Hebrew prophets. A leader of truly messianic proportion is preparing to enter the scene of human existence, first to the most unlikely of people, or perhaps the most likely – it depends on ones view.
