An Absolute Stunner!,
This review is from: A Being Darkly Wise (Kindle Edition)
Every once in a while you find a book that knocks your socks off. "A Being Darkly Wise" is such a book. A group of Washington bureaucrats go on a wilderness training led by a mysterious, charismatic activist/scientist. As the story progresses they begin to realize how estranged they have become from the earth we inhabit. The bad guys are nastily bad, the good guys are heroically good but there is a whole other level. How does the leader mesmerize each member? Can we really meet minds with the animals if we reconnect with our prehistoric knowledge? Is the leader, Jake, a prophet? a Saviour? A madman? How would we react if Christ appeared among us? Would we take him seriously or would we crucify him? I have slept little for 2 days. The book was more restorative than sleep. Do yourself a favor-buy this book!
