Alexander Mann is an author, producer, screenwriter, previously credited on the films, Angry Red Planet, Kowel’s Voice, RockLand, and the film version of, “The Angel Ultimatum,” all of which have now moved back into an "in development" status . He spent over two decades as a member of the Christian religion with, “The Angel Ultimatum,” being the culmination of his journey back out of that religion.
He suffered the death of his oldest brother Brad, who passed away in a motorcycle accident in 1975, at the age of 22, and has since lost both parents, his father in 1999, his mother in 2013. His greatest talent is his ability to conceptualize, which when combined with the loss he has suffered, results in a depth of writing, producing compelling stories.
He is a college graduate, a trained technician, and a health and safety professional, who is now emerging as a talented writer, with a goal to produce films that will touch both the hearts and minds of audiences. And to conceptualize a promising future, in which we choose, as a people, to succeed as a species.

What the author does with this work, in short, is take certain passages in the Bible (the one he quotes from is the New International Version of the Bible) and invites the engagement of logic by asking a series of questions which render the passages … to put it nicely, confusing.
What I admire about this read is the author’s approach. He does not go out of his way to make those who are believers dumb, nor does he shame them into accepting an alternate point of view. Alexander Mann’s delivery is like sitting down at a round table for a discussion, even a book club meeting.
There was conciseness without a lot of filler and theatrics. He balanced presenting the information and presenting his series of questions—one didn’t overtake the other. This work kept me engaged, so chapter length was not noticeable to me. His sources were also well documented.
If you are the type of reader who is open minded to different schools of thought as it pertains to religion or spirituality, or even one who doesn’t believe and wants to cite possible reasons why, The Angel Ultimatum can serve as a welcoming, elementary introduction.
