Let yourself heal and reveal the Glory of God within you with the help of this book.
It is interesting that when I checked the reviews, there were two people who gave one star to this book. The first person didn't like it because "it was too religious" and the other one claimed "there was not enough religion in it." Unity is called "spirituality without dogma" and the Unity publications are highly motivational writings intertwined with metaphysical Christianity. Unity principles, also the content of this book, are as follow:
1. God is love, all good and the only source of our prosperity (Prosperity includes our emotional, mental, and spiritual as well as physical needs). He is omnipotent, omniscience and omnipresent.
2. Humans are made in God's image. Therefore, we all have Holy Spirit living in us.( the Divinity of Man)
3. What we dwell on is what we bring more of in our lives. Positive thinking brings positive results. (Energy flows where mind goes)
4. In order to be healthy mentally, physically and spiritually, we need to be connected to our Creator with regular prayer.
5. Affirmative prayer (Instead of pleading and bargaining with God, being grateful and thanking God for the answered prayer before it is answered) brings positive results.
If you are working on personal-growth and spiritual enlightenment, this is the book for you. However if you take Bible literally and think your way is the only way to God, this book may offend you. I have learned a lot from reading this book including the following :
Jesus was not born on December 25 in the beginning year of the Christian calendar but in August in 4 B.C.
The Council of Necaea was called by Constantine in A.D. 325 to determine a definition of God acceptable to all, " like union-management negotiation" to secure political unity. After "a bitter struggle", God was made three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
The doctrine of "original sin" did not come from Jesus' teachings but a concept created as a reaction to "Gnostic Christians"
According to the recorded history, early Christians taught reincarnation as a doctrine of the church until the Council of Constantinople in A.D. 325. (St. Francis of Assisi and St. Augustine)
There are also very entertaining sections in the book such as "What was Jesus's last name?", "Was Jesus a Christian?", "Did Jesus intend to start a new religion named for Himself?", and "Is God a Christian?" as well as the thought provoking chapter: "In Defense of Judas." If you like this book, you will love "Lessons in Truth" by Emilie Cady, better yet "Complete Works of Emilie Cady".
