The Rise of Esperanto
Some have the gift of prophecy, but very few believe them by Eliade Moldovan

Three hundred and fifty years in the future, the world’s political structure teeters on the edge of disaster as tensions intensify between countries and continents. Vespacia’s military and business communities join forces, plotting to gain control of Esperanto in the face of its astonishing growth. Despite continued insistence to the contrary, world domination seems to be the Vespacians’ ultimate goal.

Amid turmoil, Ovi, a simple and open-minded priest, opposes the increasing violence. Struggling with the meaning and evolution of understanding God and His means, Ovi finds himself at the head of a new religious faction, one that disagrees with hard-core believers in the Old Testament’s teachings. With his newfound status as leader of this prominent religious faction, Ovi is in a unique position to prevent the Vespacians from achieving world domination, even as he further questions the existence of God.

As the conflict between Vespacia and Esperanto spreads and becomes increasingly violent, Ovi works to find a lasting resolution to the conflict, but will it come too late? In the midst of the madness of the widening war between Esperanto and Vespacia, the world’s fate lies in the hands of one very ordinary man and a benevolent alien god.

Eliade Moldovan lived most of his life under Romania’s oppressing communist regime and often found refuge in discussion with friends about the world and our place within it. He immigrated to Canada in 1993 and now lives in the Greater Toronto Area with his wife. They enjoy vacations and have travelled around the world, exploring nature and undertaking the occasional adventurous trips. In Toronto, they enjoy their ballroom dancing weekends and look forward to babysitting their lovely new grandson.

Eliade loves debating ideas and is fascinated by the possibility of the existence of other civilizations. Well-read and naturally curious, he is intrigued by religious controversy and has braved the waters of religious controversy because he believes religious ideas should be debated in order to bring people closer to understanding each other. He firmly believes our society needs all the help it can get from those who dare speak out about religion, society problems and human nature, and thus this book was born.
