"After reading Stephen G. Post's personal coming-of-age story, you too will believe in 'destiny more than goals.' This compelling narrative unfolds around experiences of synchronicity that point to a subtle, benevolent source that links our apparently separate lives."
- Judy Rodgers, International Initiatives, Brahma Kumaris, and Founder and President of Images and Voices of Hope (www.ivoh.org)
"God and Love on Route 80 is more than an enchanting, beautiful book; it indicates the kind of awareness required if we are to survive the challenges we face as a species - the awareness of our connectivity and unity with all else, and the knowledge that our world is sacred, holy, and worth saving."
- Larry Dossey, bestselling author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

In his latest book, God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness (Mango Publishing, August 15, 2019), Post brings his positive and powerful psychological message to readers via a gripping account of his own transformative experiences.
God and Love on Route 80 is Post's remarkable true story of faith, love, and fate. Compelled by a persistent and mysterious dream of a blue angel, Post leaves behind his family, friends, and routine life in New Hampshire in favor of thumbing a ride across the continent on a spontaneous road trip adventure. His journey culminates in an extraordinary encounter that turns out to be only the beginning of Post's spiritual odyssey.
At once a lively personal narrative and an expansive introduction to Post's uplifting philosophy, God and Love on Route 80 explores the meaning of a life connected by graceful synchronicities. In an account animated by deep intuition, Post interprets his incredible experiences as guidance from God and compelling proof of humanity's fundamental unity. Readers will delight in in this lighthearted account of a magical life elevated by the divine precisely because of its grounding in down-to-earth human connection.
Truly a road trip for the ages, God and Love on Route 80 guides readers to the wisdom we all find by paying close attention to the synchronicities and sanctity in our lives. Join Post on his journey along Route 80 and through life to discover that we are all connected to nature, to God and to one another through an infinite Mind, that it is by helping others that we help ourselves, and that the path to limitless love will find us and guide us if only we manage to stumble upon it.

"It takes a large and open heart to take in the invitation to faith of this vocation story. I'm more alive and alert now for having read it."
- Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking and River of Fire: My Spiritual Journey
"In this fascinating and moving spiritual adventure story, a boy follows a dream… and it leads him on a journey of amazing encounters that reveal deep truths about the nature of the universe and the power of unlimited love. Rarely has a book so vividly captured the ways in which the human mind is connected with the divine, and how through synchronicity we can be guided and supported by a presence in the universe that is greater than ourselves. Here is inspiration for anyone seeking the courage to live their dream - 'because,' as Post reminds us, 'if you don't you will always wonder what you might have discovered if you had.'"
- Ann Kathleen Bradley, writer and alumna, Harvard Divinity School and Union Theological Seminary
