I was given a set of Fox's books 17 years ago. I read this book first and in it, found the way to begin my own search for the truth of "being." The best of it is, it isn't just theory or philosphy that seems to make sense -- it works. Fox doesn't give a distinct method of working, he says to find your own way of working. It isn't a religion. It isn't dogma. When he says working, he means praying effectively.
Don't you tend to think of prayer as begging a supreme being for good luck? Don't most religions seem to truly be the "opiate of the masses?" Political structures, actually.
Try "The Golden Key." I've had so many serious problems melt into the nothingness that they really are. As Fox says in the first page, "This mystic but intensely real force can pick you up today, now, from the midst of failure, ruin, misery and despair .....and solve your problems, smooth our difficulties, cut you free from any entanglements, and place you clear, safe, and happy upon the highroad of freedom and opportunity."
It works. But keep in mind, you will apply these principles and your life will change wonderfully, and you will want to tell everyone you know that they can do the same, especially when you see those you love suffering. But most won't be interested, you'll see the most people want to hold on to their problems. It's the old saying, when the student is ready the teacher appears. I was ready 17 years ago and this book came into my life. I am happy, healthy, successful beyond my wildest expectations -- really!! -- I have more to look forward to every day and life is a wonderful experience for me.

I stumbled on Emmet Fox after reading one of his quotes in another book. After reading the many reviews here, I bought this book -- thank God! I am reading my fourth E.Fox book now and plan to read them all. These books have helped me to forgive my enemies, to pray in a most natural way, to understand the Bible better, and to become, day by day, a person less filled with fear and hate and more filled with love and grace. I think this is a great Fox book to start with -- worth far more than its price

Format: Hardcover
Emmet Fox wrote in the Christian Gnostic tradition, but his inspiring words will benefit people from all traditions. This book is a collection of writings compiled from pamphlets and includes sermons and meditations on a wide variety of subjects. The author's brilliant insights are vividly demonstrated by his psychological interpretation of Biblical passages, for example his sensible explanation of the 91st Psalm in the chapter titled "The Secret Place", where he convincingly shows that the psalmist knew about the individual's two minds: the conscious and the subconscious. Like the other great 20th century metaphysicians such as Florence Scovel-Shinn, Joseph Murphy and Ernest Holmes, Fox had a wonderful gift for conveying ancient spiritual truth in simple language that everyone can understand. He deals with issues like reincarnation, faith, scientific prayer, cosmic law, life after death and the practice of the presence of God in a most gripping and engaging manner, showing the true meaning of biblical passages in the light of psychology. My favorite chapters include (a) The Yoga Of Love, in which he confirms that there are many paths to the great goal, but that the pathway of love is the shortest and the easiest (b) The Wonder Child, about the indwelling presence of God, and (c) The Lord's Prayer, demonstrating what a carefully constructed formula this prayer is for the development of the soul (d) The Good Shepherd, a meditation on Psalm 23. Some chapters are introduced by quotes from the Bible, the Koran and poems by Bulwer Lytton, George Meredith and Wordsworth among others. The book as a whole is deeply spiritual and highly inspiring while practical at the same time. Ideally it needs to be studied, not just read once, and will certainly contribute to making the reader's life more rewarding and fulfilling. Fox understood the wellsprings of life and how the individual can achieve a richer and happier life by choosing the right thoughts.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most wonderful and powerful books I have ever read. If you are looking for answers about the nature of God, what is prayer and how does it work, who was Jesus and what was he really trying to teach us and what is the key that unlocks the deeper meaning of the bible; this is the book to read. Mr. Fox is the most profound writer in that he is able to relate the most complex ideas in an easily understood way. His love and excitememt of the stories and events of the bible are evident as he brings this medium alive to the reader. Never boring, but most of all totally relevant to living in today's world. Any book by Emmet Fox is a feast for the soul. This one will change your perception about everything you've ever known about the bible, spirituality and God! You'll never be the same!

Format: Paperback
Power Through Constructive Thinking offers a thoughtful interpretation of biblical passages for Christians and non-Christians alike. Written in an easy-to-understand style, Emmet Fox seeks neither to convert nor convince, only to help the reader deal with day to day problems and to deepen their own spirituality. I felt neither coerced nor dictated to, rather like I had been given tools with which to lead my life; I use this book as the basis for daily meditations. The strongest recommendation I can make is that I carried this book in my purse for several years, re-reading passages- and secondly that both Christian and non-Christian friends have read and been moved by this book.
