Driven by the first novel "Armageddon and the 4th timeline", I was very curious about this book. It turns out that this is a prequel to one of the best book there is. It explains in detail why Eric became Eric, Kathy became Kathy and how all things in the first book came to be.
This book is divided into two parts. The first was the story part where the plot before the main book was established providing the hows and whos of the first book. It was pleasant to read and has answered some holes left on the first book which in fact cannot be thought if you have not read this book.
The second part is the gospel part. A very refreshing and spiritual book. As a Christian myself, this part somewhat reminds me of a kind of summary of almost all the preachings I heard through my pastors. It was well researched and well written that you will not miss a beat understanding what this is for. This part shows 100% who or what the author, Don Mardak really is.
If you haven't been enlightened and was more curious of what this review brought you, I highly suggest you pick up these two books by the author. Highly recommended entertainment-wise and spiritual-wise.
By some odd coincidence the book "The GOSPEL according to I AM" that is central to the story is the last half of this book.
This isn't an adventure, and I have trouble calling it's a novel. It's too short. And it's more like a religious tract.
If you've already drunk the kool-aid, you'll love the book. Otherwise, you're better off giving it a pass.
(Perhaps this review proves I have a few more life cycles to go through before I am ready for spiritual enlightenment. It'll happen when it happens.)
I love Mardak's work and reading this prequel to Armageddon it was an absolute delight to dive into this book. The first half is an appealing and resonant novel. By removing the heightened drama of Armageddon, Mardak's delicious prose blooms for readers to savor. The writing explores many interrelated topics of an advanced spirituality that lies within and is ready to be awakened. The story gives us a deeply entertaining love story as well, as we learn Eric's romantic backstory and how he met his Tibetan guide Shimahn.
"Adventure in Mysticism"also features a second stand along book, "The GOSPEL According to I AM." This second part is more of a teacher's connection with the reader as a student, highlighting Biblical passage along with their mystical interpretation as wisely discerned by Mardak. The two sides of the whole fit together to offer readers pathways into insight and spiritual discovery, all wrapped up in an entertaining vehicle. An excellent choice to seekers of all kinds!
We saw Eric in the Fourth Timeline, trying to save mankind and all of creation, this story, however, focuses on how he got to that point. What shaped this remarkable man? When did he meet his spiritual teacher?
While fictional in nature, this book hits hard and will make you ponder many things. When you get to the second part, The Gospel According to ‘I AM’ - the Gospel Eric read, those questions will only get deeper and more meaningful for you; yet along with those questions, a few answers can be found as well.
