Sinopse

Walker Judson has a grand secret. Solitary and strange?favoring tight fitting clothes to keep from springing apart?he sees light emanating from other folks. Soul Shadows, the boy terms them. Cast from his brutal home, he perfects his skills, until even able to foresee the death of others.But whats the use? Hes merely permitted to witness, not to prevent; more a curse than a gift.Later, as director of The Living Light Healing Center, he cures the hunchback, Lauren Finch.Seduced by his charisma, she becomes his devout assistant, ultimately transformed into a powerful healer in her own right.When all goes awry, even as Laurens faith is challenged, even as others abandon Walker, she remains steadfast. But how far is she willing to go to prove her devotion, and what will it take for her to peel off the blinders to trust her own strengths?A hapless handyman with the voice of a songbird; the tiny man who materialized from vapor; an angelic statue, comprised of more than plaster and pigment; a failed mystic; and a suicidal wise woman, convene alongside other saints and lunatics to explore the misuse of power and the ease with which seekers relinquish it.And so...is Walker Judson truly a healer-gone-bad or a saintly soul whose paranormal talents are misunderstood?Ultimately, you, the reader must decide.Today’s news is rife with stories of physical and emotional abuse on the part of Catholic priests and Buddhist monks, and school teachers and sports coaches as well. Furthermore, cults such as the People’s Temple, at the behest of their leader, Jim Jones, require followers to commit mass suicide. Along another vein, politicians, athletes, and entertainers: Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Tiger Woods, and Michael Jackson—to name a few—violate the trust of family and supporters, destroying lives in the process.Why are tales of manipulation and abuse rampant among the powerful? Then again, why are followers so easily swayed that they cast aside common sense and discernment?The Worship of Walker Judson explores the misuse of power and the ease with which seekers relinquish it. Psychic phenomena, cultism, mystics and madmen, the retelling of the Christ story in the context of the persecuted healer, along with the role of personal choice versus karmic destiny are issues examined in this novel,
