Homo Novus

A Brief His-story of Tomorrow

Buy on Amazon

If you are concerned about where our high-tech society is heading, this is one book you would want to read. Yes, we are making great strides in technology – frighteningly so, with the rapid digitalization of all things, our private data included – that one may well wonder whether we have surrendered our souls to the machines. Or, more frighteningly, to the puppet masters in control. Do you get that uneasy vibe of being watched and controlled by unseen hands that seem to govern our choices, our privacy and mobility?

Humanity is at a critical moment in history. Our species faces the potential risk of extinction and the rise of a new human species that threatens to replace the current one or become the dominant one. In this thoroughly researched book, Amakiri Welekwe addresses these concerns by examining history from God’s perspective.

This book delves into the past, seeking to provide an understanding of how and why our species came to dominate the earth. It attempts to address important existential questions such as who we are, why we are here, why the world is in such a mess, where history is headed, and the impact of technology. How will events ultimately pan out in the end? For the author, the future of humanity is not in Yuval Harari’s Homo Deus. Instead, he takes us back to where it all began and, from the profound insights of this journey through history, he offers a new humanity realigned with the Creator’s original plan. This is the Homo Novus or New Man.
Who is this Homo Novus and what is so desirable about him? What has brought about his metamorphosis and how does he relate to us? In bringing together all his findings and arguments, the author speaks to something infinitely more compelling than the transhumanist goal. Why is this state so desirable and how is it attainable are the outcomes of this fascinating account.

Praise for Homo Novus

“Impassioned treatise surveying humanity’s tech future…calling for readers who may feel that “something isn’t quite right” in our digital age to reject a possible future as “homo deus” and connect instead to something greater than technology: the God of the Christian Bible. Christian readers may find his conclusions and explorations of theology persuasive…”

Publishers Weekly Booklife Reviews

“A search for meaning in a rapidly changing, often frightening, world…Welekwe moves from the deep past to the present to trace how we got here and predict where we’re going.”

Kirkus Reviews

“…Amakiri Welekwe brings a breath of fresh air with a thoughtful and insightful presentation examining human origin, existence and destiny. Amakiri’s perspective is both scholarly and thought provoking…I believe your mind will be expanded and your faith challenged as you explore with the author…Prepare for powerful insight and illuminating content…”

Dr. Dave Burrows, President and Senior Pastor, Bahamas Faith Ministries Int.

“Homo Novus draws on Amakiri’s expertise in the world of technology, as well as his deeply rooted Christian faith and theological understanding. Amakiri challenges Harari’s ‘Homo Deus’, where man becomes their own God by introducing us to ‘Homo Novus’ where we can be made new…a must read to help answer some of today’s difficult questions.”

Revd. Jamie Daniels, Lead Pastor, County Durham Christian Life Centre, and Teaching and Tutorial Staff Member at Cranmer Hall (Theological College), Durham University, United Kingdom.

In the quest to understand the future of humanity amid the rise of artificial intelligence and digitalization, “Homo Novus” provides a fresh perspective. A must-read for everyone.

Dr. Phillip Tann, British Technology Innovator and Researcher
