About the Author

Albert Norton, Jr. is an essayist and novelist, who blogs on issues of culture and philosophy as it affects religion. His first novel was Another Like Me (eLectio Publishing 2015). This is a book of adventure, but it is also a book about man’s consciousness; that of each person to the other, and about the Consciousness that surrounds us all. It is about war and peace and the truth of what we are without God, and with Him. His second novel is Rough Water Baptism (eLectio Publishing 2017), about the difficult re-enchantment of the world for one young woman who has all the material advantages one could hope for, but who begins adulthood in a spiritual desert.
