TT5 – The Messiah Matrix, with author Ken Atchity

A thriller of Biblical proportions from The Story Merchant

Ken Atchity joins us once more to discuss his new novel, The Messiah Matrix, how it was published, and prospects for this and other novels with Hollywood potential. More than modern thriller (which it definitely is), The Messiah Matrix is a thought-provoking, original examination of the origins and evolution of modern Christianity.

From the website:

The Messiah Matrix is a contemporary thriller that takes the reader on an exhilarating quest from the ancient city of Caesarea to Rome’s catacombs and beyond, and provides gripping confirmation for all those who have ever wondered about the actual historical existence of the “Christian Savior”.

The Messiah Matrix may prove to be the most thought-provoking thriller ever written. Classical scholar and Yale Ph.D. Dr. Kenneth John Atchity is the only author alive today capable of creating this literary and historically-based masterpiece.
