Fr. Thomas Matt's New Book "Four Decades in Genesis" is a Eye Opening Tale of Death and Redemption All Centered Around the Graphic Death of Fr. Matt's First Love

Fr. Thomas Matt, an ordained Catholic Priest and cancer survivor, has completed his most recent book “Four Decades In Genesis”:  a gripping and potent story that takes points in the first book of the Bible and uses them to describe and explain the murder of Peggy, and the ramifications it held for those involved.

Published by Fulton Books, Fr. Thomas Matt’s book is a story of both murder and redemption. It spans the years of 1967 to 2006. Placed in those four decades are excerpts from the first book of the Bible, and it bridges the story of creation to the death of Joseph. The actual murder is graphically depicted in this novel, and it may be considered by some to be too gruesome. The only consolation is the murder only occupies a couple of pages. It was designed in this way so the reader will discover how Fr. Thomas was able to know what actually happened and, more importantly, why it needed to be vividly described. The murder is central to this novel because it produced so many long-term consequences to the people it affected.

Redemption has multiple levels. Forgiveness is one level, and recovery is another. The reader will easily see how both play out over time. Another facet embodies the insidious nature of chemical dependency and the miraculous powers of recovery from this disease. The power can be best described as a movement from abject hopelessness to spiritual serenity. Without hope, how can any human being discover their destiny in life?

Readers who wish to experience this edifying work can purchase “Four Decades In Genesis” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
