"Burning Bush 2.0: How Pop Culture Replaced the Prophet"
Explore a whimsical and sincere examination of the ways God communicates with us—sometimes subtly and secretly—through our media and entertainment streams.
This is a marvelous book that's written with profound eloquence, beauty, love and wisdom. As a person who's recently been awakened, or reawakened, to the quest for spiritual communion, this book has been--both literally and figuratively--a "Godsend" to me! The author meticulously builds a foundation of credibility throughout the earlier parts of the book. This is done through an eloquent and courageous disclosure of intimate details of her personal life. Her three major communions with God are magnificently interwoven into the tapestry of her life's story. The wisdom that follows is then easily recognized as truth, and it's written with both love and intelligence. Thus, there are several things that make this book truly special: its credibility; its courageous and humble autobiographical component; its beautiful description of mystical encounters; and its wisdom, which is expressed with such profound love and intelligence--both.
The credibility of this book is perhaps its most singularly outstanding attribute. There's quite a bit of talk and banter about "spirituality" these days, and many people seem to be getting into the act. I am a diagnostic surgical pathologist and cytopathologist, and the default tendency toward skepticism is a strongly entrenched product of my training as a physician. I've also been in the "real world" workplace for over 13 years, and this has primarily served to reinforce that academically instilled skepticism on a practical level. So I was rather shocked when, having chosen this book because it seemed to be exactly what I was yearning for, I looked at the "About the Author" section and saw that Nancy Clark is a cytotechnologist!Read more ›

HEAR HIS VOICE is one woman's compelling account of her mystical encounter with God and of the many blessings that accrued therefrom.Author Nancy Clark has distilled in 178 pages all the loving wisdom and teachings of a great minister in a lifetime of sermons.This book is about one thing - LOVE.God is Love.We are created in His image -that is- we are spiritual beings created by Love as loving beings manifested into the physical realm.Our purpose in this life is to learn to love unconditionally so we can advance the human spiritual condition and quicken humanity's collective journey back to it's source - the Love and Light of God.Nancy focuses on the much neglected Third Person of the Holy Trinity - The Holy Spirit - God's Voice within.She reminds us that we are never alone.His Voice is always within to show us The Way,if only we would lift the veil(the ego)which deafens us to that wisdom.Nancy explains that we were created as beings of love who are meant to co-create with God by manifesting His love in this world if only we would HEAR HIS VOICE.

I've read many books on the near-death experience, and I'll keep Hear His Voice on the shelf with them although it offers so much more! The author tells about her NDE in the 1960s then goes on to describe in fascinating detail a separate, mystical, out-of-body experience in 1979 during which she was alive, awake, and completely healthy, and during which she encountered God.
In the beginning, this book reads like a page-turning novel while simultaneously being absolutely believable as reality. Laying the groundwork, Mrs. Clark gives us the sweetest story about a child's (her) relationship with God that I have ever heard. Then we are given a heartbreaking account of her experience as a young adult when a religious leader told her she was unloved by God, creating a crisis in her life.
Then begins the third, and most fascinating story, the one about her 1979 encounter with God, and she tells it beautifully and meticulously. My book has 17 pages with corners turned down, and much of the text is underlined. This sweet Child of God has much to offer those of us who are always looking for the next, and then the next bit of truth.

I believe that this is a very important book for all those on the spiritual path. And if you're on this planet, you're on a spiritual path.
I have studied Mysticism, Carl Jung, and NDEs extensively. I read about Nancy Clark in Kenneth Ring's HEADING TOWARD OMEGA. I then discovered that she held IANDS meetings in my area and attended. She has been a close friend now for 20some years. When I first met her I realized she had all the characteristics of someone that has had a true mystical experience, and that her only goal in life was making God as visible to the rest of us as He is to her. It's funny, but we don't give value to someone that has had a true mystical experience unless they've been dead for a thousand years. Don't let that be the case here.
All the time I've known Nancy, she has emphasized that it's the little everyday things that matter, and that God speaks to all of us. I always fimly believed that except for one exception - everyone but me. Then one day Nancy had a question for me that I thought about but couldn't answer. That Sunday the Gospel was read in church and I thought that it might contain the answer to Nancy's question and wrote it down because God might be using me to answer her. I never gave her the answer because I decided that God doesn't use me in that way. The next week Nancy emailed me that she had received her answer using the Bible technique that she describes in her book. It was the exact paragragh I had written down. I don't imagine the content that was that important - more important was God was saying to me, "Yes, I am speaking to you. I have been speaking to you, and I would really appreciate it if you would start listening."
That is why this book is so important. He was speaking to me, but I wasn't listening.Read more ›
