McDONNELL Geoff H. 
The Decadent and the Damned
cover image of The Decadent and the Damned: A Historical Saga About New Zealander's Forbears, Who They Were, Why They Came and What Happened!

In 1850, scandal, desperation and ambition create an upheaval in the lives of many English people. Some are encouraged to leave England and seek a new life in New Zealand. On arrival in the new colony, old habits die hard. In the mad scramble for fame and fortune, huge risks are taken, morals are compromised and those in authority hoodwinked. The Maori are ostracised and the religious ideals of the colony's founders ignored. Men spare no quarter to outwit their rivals in a race for fame and fortune. The struggle for survival of Patrick and Josephine Mahoney and their feud with Humphrey and Emma Robinson who are obsessed with wealth and power, is an inspiring human drama set amid the birth of a great nation. Wool becomes king and the new rich build their opulent mansions. The foundations of a nation are laid and the resilient and triumphant character of its people evolves. Today, their descendants live on, embracing their ancestral philosophies while facing trials and tribulations their forebears could never have envisaged.

cover image of Jesus and the Essenes

Insight into the mission of Jesus via far memory and past life regression to one who witnessed the events as they occurred. Gives a detailed account of Jesus as a person and his acts, and of the daily realities of Israel of that time. This book gives a full description of the nature and purpose of the Qumran Essene community, and the birth and upbringing of Jesus and John the Baptist. Also, it gives Essene renderings of Key Old Testament stories, concerning Moses, Ezekiel, Daniel and others, plus startling insights into ancient history. This extraordinary document represents a new form of historical research, and straightens out many open questions and misinterpretations. It takes the form of direct dialogues between a modern researcher and a member of the Qumran Essene community, alive around the time of Christ, through a person who has accessed far memory, through regression into a former life. New Age Christianity.
