Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Much like James Redfield's Celestine Prophecy, Twyman's book of cosmic ramblings was picked up by a major publisher after initial success with a small house.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"Shows us that we all have the power to create peace and change in the world. . . . We are all 'Emissaries of Light.'"  —Marianne Williamson, author,  Return to Love

"James Twyman's words are a gift to all who seek a higher way. Your soul has placed your hand upon this book. Now let its message into your heart and mind."  —Neale Donald Walsch, author, Conversations with God

"A remarkable story . . . profound in its simplicity. And it just may change your life."  —The New England Shaman

"Fortunately for all of us, another voice with a clear message that something wonderful is coming is certainly evident in James F. Twyman's Emissary of Light. It is a fast and fascinating read, I recommend it highly. Pay very close attention, for you will find yourself in this work."  —Albert Clayton Gaulden, author, Clearing for the Millennium

"It is often said that truth is stranger than fiction. Emissary of Light is mind-boggling because it recounts the true story of James Twyman's real-life adventure. I highly recommend it because it contains palatable 'Seedthoughts of Enlightenment,' a veritable banquet of easy-to-read and -digest information that we all need."  —Barbara Hoberman Levine, author, Your Body Believes Every Word You Say

Format: Hardcover
Emissary of Light offers a perspective on inner peace and tranquility. It is not a unique view for many who believe that God and peace are within each and every person just looking for a way out. But it is yet another way to explain it. The story of how James came upon this realization or I should say how it was shown to him. It starts slow but really takes off after the stage is set.
Inexplicably drawn to a conflicted part of the world he met those who try to preserve peace in the world. Not in the way you would normally think but in a spiritual way. By exuding the light of peace through mediation. The lessons on peace, love and life have been heard before but the book drew me in and would not release me for some reason. It was as if I was being told an old lesson in a new way. Is humanity ready for the next step in the evolution of their spirituality? The message of the book is that we are, although I tend to personally doubt that.
It speaks to the fact that all religions are man made and speak to the person in a way that they can understand. That it matters not which one you believe in but the fact that you believe in "The Divine Light". That people only see what they allow themselves to see and if it is Jesus or Buddha or Muhammad it makes no difference because it is the "Divine Light" behind the teaches of compassion and love that is what it is all about. I know this will not sit well with many people and this alone will turn them away from the book. But I believe there is a lot to be considered here.
I believe this book is a very good book that should be read by those interested in spirituality. And even if you don't agree with what is being said the story of the individual and his travels are interesting in themselves. As he explains what he felt and what he thought. It adds a personal dimension to the book that is interesting.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Marietta Rhyne on October 17, 1997
Format: Hardcover
If you are ready (and the Emissaries have instructed Jimmy to travel the world teaching to all that we ARE...) you will realize deeply that you are not who you thought you were. Indeed, the world is not what you thought it was.
This is not just about a series of events that happened to someone - and I have met Jimmy and I assure you they did. This book, rather, is about an unprecedented Awakening of consciousness presently occurring on our planet (more accurately, in our minds.) Emissary of Light is a gripping adventure on its own, telling a tale of mysterious coincidences, perilous war zone action and miraculous escapades within the heart of the Bosnian/Serbian/Croatian crisis. But it is the movement within your heart, taking place between the lines, that reveals the greater purpose of the story.
I invite you to read this "book", and then take some time to let it sink in all the way to your DNA. Then, allow your light to shine like it never has before. Try it. You are READY.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Theresa Welsh on July 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I found this account of James Twyman's travels to war-ravaged Croatia in the 1990s to be a very moving story. His desire to use his talents and his life to spread the message of peace is commendable and the story he tells of finding an unknown enclave of "emissaries of light" in the war zone is an amazing tale. But I was bothered by wondering all through the book:Is this story literally true?

Twyman says in the Introduction (which was removed from a later edition of the book) "This is the true story of an incredible adventure." His use of the word "adventure" is reminiscent of The Celestine Prophecy, which its author James Redfield called "An Adventure." I remember reading that many people thought the Celestine Prophecy was a true story and felt cheated when they learned it was the product of the author's imagination. But anyone who was paying attention could fairly easily figure out that the Celestine Prophecy tale was just fiction designed to teach some profound ideas. In fact, the author did not intend to mislead anyone and never wrote in an Introduction that it was a true story.

But now we have James Twyman telling us he really met these 12 emissaries in the forest and they really did project light to "the One in the Center" -- also known as The Teacher - who in turn sent this light out to humanity to counteract the negative thoughts that abound in an area torn by violence. The emissaries could make their buildings and themselves invisible to any soldiers who came too close. And, we learn, they were just waiting for James Twyman to come along so they could teach him how to make their presence and their message known to the world.

I had to give it one star. That was for the formatting of the text. As to content, well, we might be able to spread peace, but you cannot cure stupid. Western readers are most likely unaware (or they don't care, or it simply doesn't matter to them) that war criminals have successfully used the New Age/alternative medicine communities in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia to hide out and that while doing so, they successfully blind and deceive many gullible and frankly, not-very-bright people. The most famous case of this was Radovan Karadic whose bizarre story of disguising himself as a "bioenergy healer" named Drago Dabic in Serbia is well documented, most notably in the New York Times.

It pains me to write this review because I am very much aware of the sincerity and genuine "niceness" of people like the author and the friends that he made while in Bosnia/Croatia. I am not disputing that they truly believe all this and that they truly believe in a "secret society" that has been (apparently) trying to protect the world from itself for thousands of years. Unfortunately the claims just do not hold up under scrutiny and further, sincerity is not a requirement of the truth. Sincere people murdered lots of other sincere people throughout history, and in particular, in the war of the Balkans in the 90's.

The Buddha would NOT approve. Since most who are likely to read this book, are into the New Age, and therefore not interested in Jesus' words, I will quote the Buddha instead:
1. "However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?"
2. "It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways."

Sometimes, you can tell a lot about the truth of something by what is NOT said.
