John Marino, a Muslim, father, grandfather, husband and writer, has completed his first book "I Was the First White Man in the Black Muslims," a passionately crafted work that details spiritual enlightenment and religion.

"Told through my own personal experiences and struggles, 'I Was the First White Man in the Black Muslims' is a remarkable must read for those seeking spiritual enlightenment," said author John Marino.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John Marino's poignant tale is a profound biography describing the struggles of religion and finding one's own spiritual self. He describes his struggles as the Wolf Man Syndrome.

The development of a relationship between two men from completely different backgrounds, a white man from a Catholic upbringing and Italian descent from the northern city of New York with a black man from the Deep South who became a Black Muslim, of which that became a lifetime friendship built through the religion of Islam, is unique and compelling. Among the main details of the book that are indisputably and demonstrably controversial and life changing are how author interprets the Gospels' narrative of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus as symbolically referring to the history of the African Americans' suffering and cruelty endured during slavery and its aftermath of Jim Crow and discrimination. Jesus was never crucified. Jesus came into this world to let us know that we were all born without sin just like Jesus was, according to the book.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase "I Was the 1st White Man in Black Muslims" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
