Who am I? Why am I here? Does God exist, and if He does, why does He allow such great injustice and evil to flourish? Are heaven (and hell) real? Is it possible that I will ever find unconditional and lasting love? At the height of a midlife crisis, these are the questions Hugh Nemets―secular Jew and avowed atheist―is asking as he cradles a 9mm pistol, a Heckler Koch P2000SK. A hollow-point bullet waits in the chamber, ready to fire… Although he has acquired the gun purely for self-defense, he is now eying it as an instrument of death―his death. Mentally, he replays the dark secrets that have brought him to this moment. Strung out on drugs and alcohol, broken by a dysfunctional home life, twisted by sex and pornography, and obsessed with the acquisition of money and possessions, Hugh is searching for meaning, acceptance, and unconditional love. But he hasn't found it. He might as well be dead. Death has stalked Hugh all his life. From the age of nine, he has stared down the Grim Reaper on many occasions and managed to stall his ultimate enemy. Few men could have survived this long. And he's tired of trying… Dead Jew Walking: A Jewish Man's Journey from Death to Life traces one man's search for answers to the existential questions of humanity. From the ashes of his own spiritual holocaust, this "dead" Jew comes face to face with the Truth in a heavenly encounter that will change everything. Does this devout atheist surrender to the Truth? Will he accept the unconditional love offered to him? Join Hugh Nemets as he recounts his journey from death to an abundant life.
