Those who have seen the good old Konkani movie “Mog and Maipas” are sure to remember its hero Oswald (Ozzie) Sequeira. Now Oswald is in the limelight once again not as a film hero but as the author of a book titled “The Alpha and Omega”, which can be termed as unique in terms of its content and the treatment of subject dealt with. In fact, it can be termed as a smooth transition for Oswald from film a hero to be the author with lots of ups and downs and challenges in between this long period. The e-version of the book has been published and is already available on the net all over the world. The paper-back and hard cover version will be available in all leading bookstores, first in the United States and Canada. Within four to six month’s time the book will be available in all major book stalls all over the globe.
Apart from the efforts that Oswald has put into the book it is praiseworthy that he, a survivor of the deadly disease of cancer, has pledged a substantial portion of the income derived from the sale of the book to the Canadian Cancer Society, Canada and also to “Seon” Ashram in Ujire, Mangalore. “I request all the esteemed readers of Mangalore and elsewhere to buy the book and also urge their family members, relatives, friends, acquaintances, associates and colleagues to buy the book keeping in mind the charity cause espoused by me” , says Oswald.
He also suggests that readers purchase the book in e-format as it allows him to offer a higher percentage towards the charity cause though it is cheaper than the paper-back and hard cover version and is faster and easy to download and read.
About the Author
Author of the book Oswald Sequeira, born in Mangalore is currently settled in Canada with his family. His book has something to do with what he has experienced in his life. It was the power of the two miraculous healings he underwent that led him to go in search of the truth of life. His recovery from an accident that incapacitated one of his legs at the age of 43 and his total recovery from advanced cancer further worsened by the 4 major blocks in an already damaged heart due to a silent heart attack he had suffered twelve years ago bolstered him to go in the pursuit of quest of truth of life. This quest led him to read sacred books of all religions and also the history books that resulted in a rewarding experience in the form of this book.
About the Book
Author Ozzie Sequeira encourages the quest for truth through the reading of sacred books of many religions. The Alpha and Omega: Whence From to Whither To is a quest for truth containing references from the Bible and other religious scriptures that attempts to understand the truth of life, its purpose, and its final destination.
He says “I have been able to simplify the book of Revelation and explain the symbols in simple terms for the understanding of the common people. My aim is to spread the truth I have discovered, to all the people to make the world a better place to live in”. Sequeira seeks to provide his readers with an understanding of the mystery of the truth of life in this newest publication. It is a manuscripts which by design, transcends religious affinity and simply promotes or advances the belief that only through educating one’s self by way of reading the religious scriptures can one find true wisdom and knowledge, feels the author.
Ozzie says that the ideas presented in the book are not new and in fact, several publications are available discussing the very same theories, principles, thoughts, arguments, and ideas. According to him what sets apart “The Alpha and Omega “ however, is that it presents all this information in a single thought theory, as detailed in a single book. This effectively eliminates the need to peruse and cross-reference numerous manuscripts while reading on the topic”.
The Alpha and Omega shows, in an accurate manner, the connection between the Bible and history that many ordinary people are not aware of, such as the numerous prophecies in the bible which have come true, and how the prophecies of the Old Testament are connected with the New Testament. The book also delves into one of the most misunderstood and feared books of the Bible – the Revelation; explaining concisely and clearly that it is not about doomsday predictions but actually a book of hope. The Alpha and Omega explains, in simple terms, the symbols and dreams of the Bible and its connection with history, it also looks into the many interesting topics that people discuss today such as death, hell, devils, demons, and ghosts, among many others.
The author hopes that, through his book, readers will strive to learn the truth from religious scripture. As it is through learning this truth only man can truly love self and seek happiness.
