The Eternal Soul: A History, a Diatribe

Well, I know that it seems I spam these boards with my whacky theories often enough, but this time it's to promote my book. That's right, a print-on-demand firm has picked me up and the final product is now for sale. You can order it directly online right now and it'll come within a few days (from Amazon, Barnes and Noble's website, or my publisher www.virtualbookworm.com), or you can order it from me and save a few dollars and have it signed--but you'll have to wait a few weeks for it.

The purpose of the book is to rationalize the existence of the soul and "free" will by investigating the assumption that the soul is eternal--coeternal with God. Some people have called this heretical, but most of the priests with whom I've discussed this said that it's perfectly fine to hold such a view.

More information is available Here. Thank you in advance to anyone who has the kindness to read it. And no, I don't plan on making millions of dollars off of this, but at least maybe if enough people buy it from me I can recoup my initial investment.

Thanks all.

Pax vobiscum,

coeternal as in, they have forever existed with GOD and were not created?
As in, yes they existed forever with God, but nevertheless were created. It's difficult to conceptualize, but one theme of my beliefs are that time as a phenomenon is exclusive to the tangible universe. Souls are ethereal and therefore not subject to time, but they are nevertheless created. In his arguments against such a view, Augustine illustrated that this was like a foot set for all eternity in the sand; you can't deny that the foot is the creator of the footprint, but neither pre-exists the other.
