Tempting the Devil in the Name of God: Resetting Destiny’s Course to Conquer Addiction
Ocala, FL, September 21, 2015 – More than 23.5 million Americans abuse drugs or alcohol, and the fact is that addiction destroys lives. Just ask Howard Beckman. Beckman was the son of a Philadelphia lawyer and was fortunate to have a wide array of opportunities at arm’s length. Sadly, he was an out-of-control teenager and his bad decisions led him down the path of drug addiction and international drug smuggling, which ultimately landed him in a Thai prison. With all hardships, there are lessons to be learned and Beckman is sharing his journey in his memoir, Tempting the Devil in the Name of God: The Heavy Hand of Fate in early October 2015.
Beckman’s travels were extensive, and with every stop around the globe there were setbacks. At times his story reads like a psychological thriller, and at others, as a mysterious journey into exotic lands and people. He bounced from one extreme to another from prison and corruption to finding spiritual peace. His journey is one of survival and anyone who has directly or indirectly experienced the horrors of drug addiction will find his memoir meaningful on a variety of levels.
“It’s my hope that by sharing how I survived my darkest days, it will somehow inspire someone who has lost their way, or even their will to go on,” says Beckman. “When you hit rock bottom, the only way to go is up. Sometimes you have to just let go of the past to find your own path in life.”
Howard Beckman is a writer, speaker and spiritual counselor. He is an expert in the ancient sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda, and specializes in Vedic Astrology.
