The God-Seeker, a Novel. Excerpt. Although the Gadds, the Lanarks, Rip Tattam and the people of Bois des Morts and the Berkshire Hills in this novel are all fictitious, Charles Finney and most of the Minnesota characters are historical.

The first God-seeker covered is Irenaeus (died c. AD ); the last is Rosemary Ruether (still extant). Some of the seekers are familiar figures; others--John S. Mbiti, Maria Skobtsova, Jean-Pierre de Caussade, e.g--may be an expansion of your spiritual repertoire/5(6).

Seker was the Memphite god of the dead since the Old Kingdom. The name Seker also spelled as Sokar, Sokaris or Socharis in Greek.
