Author Biography

In 1976, I experienced a sequence of supernatural events that rocked my world. One would have to read my true story to fully understand what has caused me to publish these experiences. In any event, when people contact me to tell me that my story has been instrumental in their coming to discover God - I know my entire existence has been worthwhile. 'Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends'. (John 15:13). I pretty much laid down my own life when I chose to tell the truth about what happened to me. I lost friends and family because people thought I was crazy. But, I have no regrets as I see when these same people grow old approach death - they think about my story and seek to find what I have found. Reality - both here and hereafter!

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God is a work of religious non-fiction by David Soloman. Raised with his nine siblings in the woods of Northern Maine with bears as neighbors, David was always determined to break free from a life of poverty. As a child, David searched for innovative ideas to make extra money. However, the entrepreneur lifestyle and his dream of escaping his childhood town would soon become a distant memory when a tragic accident set him on a new path of criminal activity, foster care, and eventually prison. Facing years behind bars, David felt broken, carrying resentment and pain. With no hope of a bright future, he turned to the Bible for comfort and guidance. One unforgettable day, as David sat in his prison cell, he would experience something that changed his life in ways he never thought possible. Follow David’s story from a criminal with no future to a man that inspires greatness in others. ‘We all make mistakes. Each time we fall, we must get back up and learn to walk right.’

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God by David Soloman is a brutally honest and poignant memoir of one man’s spiritual journey from despair to discovering that anything is possible. The descriptive narrative throughout was exceptional and transported you into David’s thoughts and beliefs about others and the world around him. His innovative mind was incredible, and I feel if he'd had the proper moral guidance earlier, David would certainly have become a successful businessman. David’s strength of character throughout all the darkness and turmoil was admirable. David’s story shows that if you open your mind to the possibility that there is a higher power guiding you toward greatness and your true authentic self, anything can be achieved. I loved David’s memoir most because he encourages you to believe that whatever your past actions, beliefs, and experiences, you can turn your life around and become whoever you choose to be. The accounts of his time in foster care and prison were brutal to read because of the heartbreaking and realistic content. Journey Into The Kingdom Of God is an inspiration to anyone who feels lost with no sense of a clear direction. His memoir is a fantastic, uplifting read and warmed my heart significantly.

David Soloman spent the first part of his life as a rabble-rouser and criminal. He did not care about his fellow man. Then, when it looked like all hope was gone, he turned to the Bible, seeking to know if God really existed. He shares his story of crime and then his exchanged life in his book Journey into the Kingdom of God. This book details his conversion experience and how God communicated with him directly. He believes he is taught directly by God Himself. David shares some fascinating “dreams” that he has had. While this book shares David’s personal experiences with God, he claims that anyone can have the same things happen to them. Reincarnation and evolution are both discussed and approved by David.

David Soloman believes that he has direct communication with God. He presents his belief system in Journey into the Kingdom of God. Those who accept the orthodox view of Christianity and a relationship with God may struggle with David’s theology. However, his writing is compelling and interesting. He writes in an easy-to-understand manner and explains what he believes are his personal experiences with God. The book is clear in its presentation and exciting. While one may not agree with David on everything, one will enjoy reading his testimony. David uses a few mild language words while he is telling about his before Christ days. David wrote this book to share his relationship with others in the hope that they too will develop a relationship with God.

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God by David Soloman is a real-life story of his journey to finding God even when he was trapped in turmoil. Soloman’s early days were not easy. Growing up in a dirt-poor family, he had to find creative ways to sustain himself and his siblings, even when it was against the law. While society may deem it as a crime, Soloman saw it as an opportunity to live. His improper upbringing, coupled with his unstable father and vulnerable mother, led to a less than ideal future that, at first glance, would be bleak and hopeless. Showing us many of life’s hurdles, Soloman shares his journey of meeting God in the unlikeliest of places – prison.

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God is a wonderfully written piece by David Soloman. I have nothing but compliments to shower on Soloman for his bravery and courage to show the world his arduous journey since birth. Soloman’s descriptive writing regarding his thought process during a criminal event justified his actions, giving me insight into the struggles he was undergoing so I could contextualize his actions, considering his situation. I could clearly see how his characteristics were built from such a young age, growing up in a family that lacked basic needs and love. His discovery of God in prison showed me that the Almighty can touch us in many ways, even when we think it is not possible and when it seems we are furthest away from God. I would definitely recommend this book!

It is always commendable when someone decides to share his experiences with his fellow humans. When you listen to the narration of other people's lives, you can open your mind and make reflections that, otherwise, would never have occurred to you. This is even more true when an author like David Soloman shares with his readers how his life has changed thanks to God. In Journey Into The Kingdom Of God, Soloman recounts his life, which had been characterized by criminal activity, and his discovery of God. While the discovery did not immediately prevent him from making mistakes, Soloman's lesson is an inspiration to all of us.

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God can certainly be a useful read to those who are in a difficult situation and do not know how to get out of it. Soloman tells everything about his life, and I think anyone in a situation like his can benefit from his words. Even those with no criminal past, however, can be inspired by his words. Journey Into The Kingdom Of God is a book that helps us reflect on the fact that everyone can redeem themselves if they have the opportunity to do so. Personally, this book reminded me that one should never judge anyone but that it is always preferable to understand a person's struggle and wait for God to help them. I recommend Journey Into The Kingdom Of God to all people who care about their spirituality and are looking for a way to improve their lives.

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God: A True Story That Could Happen To Anyone! by David Soloman is an emotional memoir about a man's journey to spirituality. Soloman writes his book to bring others to the saving knowledge of God. His story of meeting God and being born again begins when he is a little boy living in poverty, so poor that they ate dandelions for food and lived in a glorified chicken coop. He was stuck being poor and wanted so badly to break free of it. He always took on work to make extra money and was blessed with an incredibly clever and creative mind. But life throws us detours sometimes, and it did in Soloman's too. He endured abusive times in foster care, then prison. But there was a silver lining in all of this because this was when he began to read the Bible, and God transformed his life.

Journey Into The Kingdom Of God and this man's life story has a lot going for it. It's recognized on a national level by government agencies and is lauded by clergy members as being an impactful testimony. Soloman tells his story with gritty realism and heartbreaking detail, and you wonder how some people survive such hardships. But he will be the first to tell you that God saved him, and he wants everyone to have that personal relationship. He writes with honesty and simplicity; a unique style that will bring you into his world and experiences. One of my favorite parts is when he studied mechanical engineering while being locked up, and how he designed the fuel-free Electromagnetic Engine in 1980 - which could power the world and eliminate the need for oil and prevent related resource crises - but he was turned down by the government, specifically the US Bureau of Standards. Though his life was filled with ups and downs, his faith in God remains. If you like stories of faith and redemption, you will be touched by Journey Into The Kingdom Of God: A True Story That Could Happen To Anyone! by David Soloman.

Journey Into The Kingdom of God is exceptionally well written and articulate. Having grown up in same part of the country I can attest to the cold Winters, the desolate surroundings, the hardships that many grew up with. David's battle was a fight for survival beginning the day he was born. He was taken from the only family he knew and juggled from one foster home to another. Right or wrong he did what he could just to exist. He turned to a life of crime because he didn't know of any other way. It was a kill or be killed lifestyle just to stay aluce. In and out of one jail after another didn't help to rehabilitate him; it only provided him with a better education into this life of crime.
But, as is often the case, its only when we hit rock bottom our eyes are opened and we can truly see. In that tiny jail cell alone and destitute, feeling like all was lost and no way to turn. . . .David turned to his Bible. Then and only then he turned his eyes to God. The one and only entity that could help him change his life of crime. Broken, full of remorse, David allowed God into his life. He learned to rely on God for all his needs, his movements. He conversed with God in his own way. He spent days, hours learning to listen to God's voice and recognize when and how God would converse with him.
David's story is a heartbreaking story from birth throughout childhood into manhood, but, Praise God. . . His life has been miraculously transformed as he continues to give his testimony and to do God's will.
Journey Into The Kingdom of God is a definite must read for everyone. It shows that no matter where you come from, how you grew up or what you've done, God loves you and has a plan for your life. I highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of your circumstances. I look forward to seeing more inspirational books by this author. Thank you David Soloman for sharing your life.
