Just before 3am on January 24th, 1941, when Britain was preoccupied with surviving the Blitz, the body of Josslyn Hay, Earl of Erroll, was discovered lying on the floor of his Buick, at a road intersection some miles outside Nairobi, with a bullet in his head. A leading figure in Kenya's colonial community, the Earl had recently been appointed Military Secretary, but he was primarily a seducer of other men's wives. Sir Henry Delves Broughton, whose wife was Erroll's current conquest, had an obvious motive for the murder, but no one was ever convicted and the question of who killed him became a classic mystery, a scandal and cause celebre. Among those who became fascinated with the Erroll case was Cyril Connolly who joined up with James Fox for a major investigation of the case in 1969 for the Sunday Times magazine. After his death James Fox inherited the obsession and a commitment to continue in pursuit of the story both in England and Kenya in the late 1970s. One day, on a veranda overlooking the Indian Ocean, Fox came across a piece of evidence that seemed to bring all the fragments and pieces together and convinced him that he saw a complete picture...

In 2006, frustrated with religious turmoil, fanaticism, and fundamentalism, filmmaker Peter Rodger set out on a quest across 23 countries to shoot the epic nonfiction motion picture Oh My God in an attempt to understand what the concept of God meant to people in all walks of life. This book chronicles Peter’s extraordinary adventure as he circled the globe, asking an amazing array of characters the simple (but not-so-simple) question: "What is God?" This is a story of overcoming challenges, as well as a unique travelogue and social snapshot. It delves into the pain of persevering in times of trouble and is also a testament to adhering to one’s own convictions. Philosophical, searching, funny, and very personal, this work will make you laugh out loud, and at other times make you cry. It is devoid of theology, but touches faith on both religious and nonreligious levels. It is objective, yet there are many opinions. Above all, it is a chance to be whisked away from the comfort of your own home to visit places and people, famous and not; and absorb their profound, irreverent, blasphemous, spiritual musings . . . on an age-old query. Their words will stir up passion, curiosity, self-examination, and wild imagination. Oh My God! Prepare for the ride.

The book boldly examines a slew of topics, such as pop culture, art and politics and analyzes racism in both a historical and contemporary context.
