Ruth Montgomery, a former political journalist, chronicles her life as Ruth (the sister of Lazarus) during the lifetime of Jesus. She explains her story through her spirit guides. I like the fact that she tries to present everything from an "I'm not always sure this is real, but it sure seems like it" slightly skeptical manner. I found this book to be very similar to that of the newer book "The Messengers" where Jesus' life is also chronicled. It makes you feel as though you have experienced Jesus's life firsthand, and that's a unique perspective.The last few chapters of the book discusses other lives experienced with her spirit guides; I found this portion to be less interesting. It's amazing to think Ruth wrote several books on this topic way before the current onslaught of "new age" books.
