About the Author

Gabriel D. Roberts was born in Tacoma, Wa in the late 70's. The value of seeking the truth wherever it may be found was instilled in him at a very young age. At 7 years old he was street preaching in Salt Lake City, Utah and by 10 years old he had traveled to China, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Macau and The Philippines as a missionary. Having grown up in a fundamentalist Christian environment, his perspective on the world was greatly influenced by the Bible and the fundamentalist view of its teachings. Having come to adulthood, Gabriel moved from his hometown of Tacoma to the more cosmopolitan Seattle to get his theology degree at Seattle Bible College. Through his studies and endeavors to live the truth and find a spiritually fulfilling life, Gabriel felt that there must be something more to the story than a contest of sin and salvation. After many years of study and with a lifetime of effort to connect with something greater, Gabriel stepped away from his Christian faith. Like many others who have had an earnest thirst for the answers to the big questions of life, Gabriel was not satisfied to settle for not knowing more. His continued research in the fields of Science, Spirituality and Anthropology continue to yield more and more exciting discoveries.

More About the Author

Gabriel D. Roberts was born in Tacoma, Wa in the late 70's. The value of seeking the truth wherever it may be found was instilled in him at a very young age. At 7 years old he was street preaching in Salt Lake City, Utah and by 10 years old he had traveled to China, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Macau and The Philippines as a missionary. Having grown up in a fundamentalist Christian environment, his perspective on the world was greatly influenced by the Bible and the fundamentalist view of its teachings. Having come to adulthood, Gabriel moved from his hometown of Tacoma to the more cosmopolitan Seattle to get his theology degree at Seattle Bible College. Through his studies and endeavors to live the truth and find a spiritually fulfilling life, Gabriel felt that there must be something more to the story than a contest of sin and salvation. After many years of study and with a lifetime of effort to connect with something greater, Gabriel stepped away from his Christian faith. The details and reasons are catalogued in his book, Born Again To Rebirth, which is available now. Like many others who have had an earnest thirst for the answers to the big questions of life, Gabriel was not satisfied to settle for not knowing more. His continued research in the fields of Science, Spirituality, psychedelics and Anthropology continue to yield more and more exciting discoveries.

Not being afraid to challenge his own cosmologies in light of new information, Gabriel D. Roberts continues to put together the puzzle pieces of life in a continued effort to bring enlightenment to himself and to his readers. Foremost among his influences are great writers, researchers and scientists like Terence McKenna, Peter J. Carroll, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Robert Anton Wilson, Jonathan Talat Phillips, Graham Hancock, Dr. Jeremy Narby, Russell Targ and Rupert Sheldrake.

The author describes going through the experience of being brought up as a fundamental Christian and his journey to fact based understanding of reality. He makes many references to the Gnostic Christian traditions and spirituality which I find to be inconsistent with his fact based premise. He alludes to the use of traditional psychedelics as a means to achieve spiritual understandings. In my opinion, Roberts has not yet completed his journey .

Gabriel Roberts writes like a tour guide for the universe.
His logic sound and his words animate.
He presents his points with ease and confidence.

Riding the Fine line doesn't read like a collection of essays...it reads more like dialogue in a great conversation.
The kind of discussion you'd have over a fine bottle of bourbon.
Every time he challenges one of your pre-established views (which he will do, and often), he does it with care and consideration. Like a lantern in the fog he escorts you to clarity, like a head rush he will spark your synapses.

Engaging and unique, Riding The Fine Line was well worth reading and assisted in expanding my ever growing appreciation of young writers and novel view points.
My reading preferences have been shifting over the last few years. I've been moving away from classical literature and fiction and developing a growing preference for memoir, biographies, editorials or commentaries and personal narratives. Gabriel D. Roberts presents a strong series of thoughtful, well-developed essays. Riding the Fine Line, is an illustrious example of fine writing from a new author with, what hopes to be, a prolific writing career ahead of him. His distinctive style and lucid first person narratives establish an immediate rapport between the reader and the inner dialogue of a man of tremendous insight.
