Introducing Self-Publishing Author Phillippe W. Bryant’s Book Video Trailer for “INITIUM”

Announcing the Self Publishing News  premiere of the book video trailer for INITIUM (published by Outskirts Press, June 2021), by Phillippe W. Bryant.

Did the Biblical God Have a Beginning?

INITIUM: SELF-GENESIS OF GOD is a revelatory bombshell that no serious theologian, philosopher, scientist, or minister of the faith can ignore. This fascinating paper reveals the primordial self-genesis of God before He created the Universe. Surprisingly new aspects of His Divine Anatomy have also been unveiled. This knowledge, of His fearful Anatomy, will clearly show that God is the definitive “Rosetta Stone Paradigm” that lends insight into truth itself, the animate nature of life, and even the causal mechanics that explain the Universe. Exploring the mystery of God’s historic origins has ironically revealed the Key to understanding the future. These astonishing insights and observations are soundly explained by “the Holy Bible [KJV].” As intended by the Creator, mankind can once again partake of the special knowledge and enlightenment that can only come from realization of the Divine.

Phillippe W. Bryant

Phillippe W. Bryant had a life-changing epiphany at St. John’s University as a college freshman. In an introductory philosophy course titled “Man and Nature,” God was metaphysically referred to as “The Prime Mover.” This most intriguing discussion started Phillippe on a quest to understand and know the biblical God. The fruit of this quest has manifested in the founding of Principia DivineTM (www.PrincipiaDivine.com), a nontraditional teaching platform that allows for a candid study of God unfettered by pseudo theology, man-made doctrines, and false religion.

“It’s a page turner, that’s for sure. A really fun read. And what a great movie it would make.” —Laura Fedele, WFUV Radio

Four life-long friends return to their small Southern home town for their 30th high school reunion. A child’s toy is discovered in the home of former classmates, a silly pink swan float last seen with a small child on the day she was discovered dead 40 years earlier. Had one of the old classmates had a hand in her death? Was what was once believed to be a tragic accident actually murder? Amelie had to find out. That small child was her little sister, Elizabeth, and Amelie had always blamed herself for the little girl’s death. She’d been babysitting Elizabeth that day by the river when she slipped away.

The world is now in the hands of mentally ill, warmongering fanatics. They have less conscience than cruel wild animals. They spend money to create powerful weapons that can destroy the earth in the blink of an eye. Because of their power, less than 10% of the world’s population has a prosperous, comfortable life. The rest of the world is sacrificed for the convenience of these people, who make up 10% of the population.
 
Planet Earth is not the sole property of just a few people. We are all born into the world with equal rights as humans. The earth itself does not discriminate between white skin or black skin. The white man should not be considered superior, and the black man should not be considered inferior. White and black are products of geography, not of merit. When we came into this world, we brought nothing with us, and when we die, we will take nothing with us. During our lifetimes, peace is stolen from us in the world because of impatience, pride, and domination. If we fail to question these injustices, how can the next generation live here?

World peace is sacrificed to impatience, pride, and a desire to dominate. He is ready to join hands in the fight with those working against corruption and inhumanity. He believes that this book will give back to every human being, and that giving back is essential to life in the modern world.
