From time to time, the book will be updated with corrections and/or important and necessary new material. This is the beauty of an electronic book! Therefore, you can check below to see if any updates have happened and what they consist of. I would strongly recommend downloading the latest version, as it will always have the greatest clarification. Updates can merely be the correction of typographical errors or they can take place in the text after a reader/enquirer has asked for clarification. Also, news will appear here about any other projects of Under the Radar or activities which may be connected with the book or its subject matter, e.g. public talks, articles, blogs, etc.
When you download the current version, please ensure that you delete all previous versions of the book on your devices.
IT HAS NOW BEEN SUGGESTED BY AT LEAST 10 READERS that a physical hard-copy version of the “Narrow Gate” book should be printed and distributed. This is what I would have liked from the start. But that would take a few thousand pounds / dollars / euros to accomplish with an almost 700-page book in a quality finish. So at first I just wanted to “get it out there” in the cheapest and fastest way possible to gauge the reaction to the content in the form of a free eBook. In the 18 months since the book came out, it has been downloaded more than 1000 times. But it seems that many would much prefer to have a physical book to read for convenience and saving on eye-strain, despite the fact that it would cost. (I even had a message from one intrepid soul who is so keen to have a hard-copy for herself that she was asking for permission to print out the book via photocopy at a cost of almost $80 in a local printshop!). I love physical books myself. So I’m just throwing this out there: Now that it has reached what I believe will be its definitive edition, would you be willing at some stage to contribute in some way to sponsoring the printing costs of a hard-copy edition of this book? Naturally, all costings would be made available and open to scrutiny. This would not be a for-profit exercise.
The eBook would continue to be available free of charge for anyone who wanted it, so that isn’t really an issue. It wouldn’t be a question of stopping the free eBook. It’s not an “either/or” situation but a “both/and” scenario.🙂 I know there are many who appreciate hard copy in their hands (for either romantic or practical reasons), and only have a phone to read PDFs or have a computer screen which is not great resolution. The messages I’m receiving are that a real physical book is a good additional way to go. I already knew from feedback that many haven’t bothered to download or have tried but gave up because they can’t handle the visuals. So it’s on the cards if the finance can be found. For example, if 200 people sponsored the project with $£€20 each, that would cover the printing costs and they would also already have paid for their own copy of the book 😀 Simple maths. This is doable. 😎
Please send me a message via email at email@example.com or use the contact page of this website. I look forward to hearing from you.
Blessings & best wishes to you.
THIS IS JUST TO SAY THAT the book has been updated to version v.2.01. This has just a very few minor updates in one section plus an updated photograph of the author on the rear cover with new hairstyle and colour. 😎 Nothing special. But if you are OCD and really need to have the latest edition of everything (which is me, by the way! 😀), then you will probably want to have v.2.01 rather than 2.0.
I hope the book resonates. Feel free to share it widely.
Blessings and best wishes,
Version 2.0 of Narrow Gate ~ Pathway Strait is now available on the download page. This new edition has 670 pages, almost 250,000 words, 8 chapters, 10 appendices, more than 800 footnotes, and 262 section headings. That is 65 pages and 27,000 words more than the previous edition. Numerous additions have been made to the text, plus an extra final chapter and the entire manuscript has been honed and corrected, with broken hyperlinks put right. It also contains interactive hyperlinks and if you make bookmarks visible you will be able to see all the headings of the book laid out next to the text and use them interactively to move around the book.
I hope that you will find this new edition to be a rewarding addition to your library.

TO COMMEMORATE MY 70th BIRTHDAY, I’ve written a 2,600-word article on my blog. I hope you will find it interesting. It also speaks about a new website and service which I will be offering (free of charge) which is actually a resurrection of a service I used to offer in the past. Maybe you can guess 😉). This is a new year of action and this new website and service is growing out of the book I wrote last year, Narrow Gate ~ Pathway Strait. To go to the article please click here. I look forward to welcoming you there! Best wishes and blessings to one and all!
READERS OF MY BOOK may be interested to check out my blog where you can also become a subscriber so you get to know about all the articles I regularly put on there. For example, today I uploaded a new music video (recorded in my living-room) of a song I just wrote, entitled “Shades of Green”, which shows how actions recorded in Genesis 3 have echoed down the corridors of time to this day and have outworkings in so many of the actions of men and women and are at the root of so much of the gender madness of modern times which is coming to a climax in confusion and debauchery. Soon, I will upload there a companion article to the song, entitled “Primal Stream: The Ancient Roots of Gender-Bending”. Here is the link to the blog: https://thenakedtroubadour.com . If you go there, you can scroll down to see what interests you and also subscribe. Enjoy!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MY OTHER WRITINGS, feel free to check out my blog, The Naked Troubadour, which you will find by clicking here . The latest articles on there are “The Challenge to Modern Womanhood: Rediscovering the Gentle & Tranquil Spirit”, “Dear God, Please Show me my Next Assignment”, and “Another Tasteless Kitschmas!”. I hope you enjoy the journey there.
28th November, 2018: The book was updated to stable version v.1.5. This is an extensive revision with a number of typographical errors corrected which had been pointed out by kind readers. There has also been an innumerable number of “perfections” and clarifications (some in response to readers’ queries), and I have gone through the entire text with a fine toothcomb from start to finish. The book now contains 606 pages, making an additional 11 pages, and has almost 7000 more words than in the previous version. It also now contains more than 224,000 words and has 727 footnotes. Version v.1.5 will now be the stable version and I will not be doing anything more to it for the foreseeable future. I have been working on this update day and night for the past month and it is now absolutely everything I want it to be. My whole heart is in there. Download is advised, but please first delete any previous versions if you have them. I hope you find the book helpful and edifying.
3rd November, 2018: The book was published for the first time as version 1.0.
