Starred Review. Many readers will recognize Pearson as the one-time protégé of Oral Roberts and himself a dynamic and popular preacher ordained by the Church of God in Christ. Pearson fell out of favor when he openly advocated a universalist approach to salvation and was subsequently disowned by Roberts and by virtually every other evangelical or Pentecostal he had worked with. In this stirring and surprising work, Pearson goes the next step, completely distancing himself from his Pentecostal roots and aligning himself with the New Thought movement, an American spiritual philosophy that emphasizes the power of thought to affect circumstances. The author's passion jumps off each page as he attempts to guide his readers along the tortuous path that led and informed him. He argues for an open and loving faith experience, as opposed to the "cult of myths and secret rites of initiation" that he perceives Christianity to have become. Pearson will anger his old friends with this book, but he will likely make some new friends as they join him in his quest for spiritual clarity.
"At the heart of this remarkable book is a compassionate voice offering wisdom-guided revelations from Bishop Pearson’s own inner exploration of scripture, the nature of God, and the realities of human existence." -- Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation~Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential
