“Finding God” by Bam Dev Sharma, is a collection of eighteen stories, meant for children aged eight to twelve years old. Stuffed with moral values and life lessons, the characters appear as human beings like farmer, boatman, merchant, hermit, king, woodcutters, and milkman. The children can easily feel and empathize with them. Humor, satire, irony, allegory, and fun abound in the stories to entertain young children in reading activities. Furthermore, love, compassion, fellow feeling, and mutual coexistence are specifically highlighted so that children imbue values and try to live with them. In the world of artificial intelligence, these stories may be sources of enhancing human values that are declining in the contemporary world.

THE MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB is founded in the Pearl of the Orient: PHILIPPINES.
Literally, McKinley is a street name where one of the three founders of the publishing company lives. In the context of Philippine History, "McKinley" are the Filipino Ilustrados who fought for freedom and real progress in the Philippines way back during the colonization era of Spain and America in our land. Ilustrados are the enlightened ones, not necessarily rich but surely educated formally (like Jose Rizal) or self-taught (like Andres Bonifacio or Emilio Jacinto or Josefa Llanes Escoda). They held the "enlightenment torch" to light and lead the way for Filipinos living in the "dark" towards a bright future full of hope.
Fast forward to now, 2021 which is a century hence plus some more decades after Rizal, Bonifacio and Escoda. There is this new batch of self-published-Ilustrados again. Don Luman-ag, Dexter Amoroso, and Eureka Cambonga Bianzon Robey are these new self-publishedIlustrados. They believe that there is hope in the self-publishimg in the not only for the Filipinos but for the whole world.
This time, Don, Dex and Eureka will see to it that they will not be misunderstood (because they are good communicators). This time they will also commit not to fail (because they have a passion for excellence). Besides, real heroism for them is not to put themselves on top of pedestals but for them to make more heroes of this new revolution in publishing. More heroes advocating the democratization of opportunities and progress in businesses, in learning institutions, and in individuals.
ALL THESE THROUGH MCKINLEY PUBLISHING HUB.
