Have you ever thought that you have had a previous existence? What if you woke up one day and discovered that you had been transported back 4,000 years to an earlier life? This is what happens to Mel, a modern-day architect who is shortly to be married. He returns to his previous incarnation as Melchizedek, a warrior, king, and high priest briefly mentioned in the Bible. Although he considers himself to be ill-equipped to succeed in this role, guidance is always there when needed. From time to time Mel returns briefly to the present, and eventually has to choose between the two existences.
Very little is known about Melchizedek. But his name crops up in a few ancient texts including the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Gnostic Gospels discovered in Egypt, The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, and in various Jewish oral and written traditions. Despite the sparsity of information available, the author's intention is always to try and keep the narrative as historically factual and credible as possible.
Readers are free to regard the whole account as pure fantasy--or maybe it will provide some food for thought. Hmm, could it actually have happened?
