Sometimes, it can be entertaining, but I had to draw the line at just that: entertainment. Seems like juvenile fantasy content to me. However, if you can prove to me these meetings actually happened and that these beings exist, then I will gladly and voraciously endorse this book and the content within. Until then...meh!
Just as there are sound vibrations that most people cannot hear and light vibrations that most people cannot see, there are realms of being that most people are not aware of. Some people have seen ghosts; some people have seen angels; a few, like David and Carol Swing, perceive and communicate with the Faerie realm. If you are one who likes to read about gnomes and elves and brownies and all manner of other beings that most of us have only heard of through "fairy tales," you will love this book.
We learn how David as a child became aware of these other beings, but while growing up, his rational society dimmed his view and even caused him to fear such sights. But the gnomes insisted on making contact, and this book relates the many teachings that they imparted through stories, some of which are familiar to us as Celtic myths—Arthur, Gwynhwyfar, Merlin—but many others are the personal stories of individual gnomes, elves, and other legendary creatures. The writing is colorful and detailed, the response is uplifting. The book concludes with a list of precepts to guide you through "troubled times."
The philosophy of life and unique understanding of the meaning of Christ are based on the authors' personal experiences with the Faerie realm.
This book is not a novel and is best read in short segments in order to digest its deepest meaning.
