His earlier books are inspired by his two-way written communication with God i.e. he asks God a question and God gives him an answer. They are part of the Conversation with God (CwG) series.
His first three books in the CwG series are meant to be a trilogy. The progression is as follow:
- Book 1: Individual Truths
- Book 2: Global Truths
- Book 3: Universal Truths
Later, he wrote other books in a similar format and they tackle different topics such as developing a friendship with God, death, and questions that teens might have.

1. Conversation with God (Book 1)
“Enlightenment is understanding that there is nowhere to go, nothing to do, and nobody you have to be except exactly who you’re being right now.”
During an unhappy period of his time in 1992, the author wrote an angry letter to God, asking God questions such as Why wasn’t my life working? and Why could I not find happiness in a relationship?
To his surprise, God began talking with him. So he continued this lengthy, two-way communication with God, asking God more questions and writing down the wisdom and answers he received.
