Call Me Joe by Martin Van Es
About The Book
Mankind is on the brink of self-destruction. Twelve of the most creative thinkers in the world are working to come up with a solution in time. It means changing the way everything has been done in the past… and there are powerful people/forces who will do anything they can to maintain the status quo.
The Twelve need a leader that the whole world will follow. A man called Joe, who claims to be the returned Son of God, may be the answer to their problems, but is he who he says he is? Will the world be convinced to follow him before he is silenced by those in power? This story is the exciting first step in the world-changing Joe Project.
I think this is a great book to read these days, showing the reader that global crisis are something periodical and that with a little bit of faith and someone who can be trusted by anyone it’s much easier to survive.
Joe is the new prophet, the modern son of God, he claims that he can repair everything if you trust him. Would you follow his ideas with your eyes closed? That’s the main point of this story, Joe is not a bad man, he wants the good for the planet in the worst moment for Earth; climate change, political distrust… But is the human race ready to follow a new god to save their life?
I’ll start saying that I am not a religious person, I don’t believe in any type of religion, but I think that some people need this belief, the need that something has more power than humans and decide their fate and life. This is when Joe enters to the story, but I want to think of “Joe” not as a God but as a start. Because the beginning is always the difficult part, if you have the idea the rest is much easier. So take Joe as an idea, an idea of a movement of people trying to change the way humans are behaving and change the way they treat each other and the planet. Because, if we don’t work together, this Pandemic that we are living right now it will just be the start of what will happen next, so, let’s start with Joe and follow his path, maybe he is not God’s son, but he started a movement that I am sure any reader would like to follow.
Call Me Joe is an interesting read that will move any reader and will change the way we see the world. It’s time to create our own Joe and change the world, don’t you think?
About The Author
Martin van Es is a Dutch entrepreneur, father and grandfather. Born in 1959, the youngest of three children, he studied clinical psychology in Groningen, but got distracted by partying and a permanent lack of money. In 1986, he became a father to his daughter, and his son joined the world in 1989, spurring him forward to quit studying, focus on working and start living more seriously. After graduating in international marketing,Martin took a job as a purchasing director, enabling him to travel the world. He then became director of a packaging wholesaler in Arnhem, TheNetherlands. Over 14 years he developed the company alongside his team to create a leading player in the international packaging industry, working on more sustainable packaging concepts. In 2005, Martin sold the company to the largest distributor in the packaging world, and he ventured into volunteering, investing and advising companies. Martin is particularly proud of father-and-son out door events company, Mooi Weer, on the beautiful island of Terschelling. Between 2013 and 2017, Martin was director and co-owner of a large, international group of packaging wholesale companies specialised in environmental issues. The role, as well as the birth of his first two grand children, have had a massive influence on Martin. He started writing Call Me Joe in 2017, and asked Andrew Crofts, as a prolific ghost writer, to join him as co-writer in 2019 to make the story the best it could possibly be. Martin hopes the book will provoke conversation, challenge the status quo, and encourage people to question more about what is happening in the world, to question their leaders, and to consider their role in the future of the planet.
