From the Author
I am a citizen of the world; not just the citizen of oneparticular country. I am non-denominational in my belief in God. I am notrestricted to any particular or specific religious denomination. That being said; Ifirmly believe that political, ideological, and religious beliefs that divideour world must be overcome.
Religion and human inequality prevents a more PeacefulWorld. We must mute the emphasis on religious beliefs that seek to judge otherswith their tenets and place more emphasis on individually human rights.
Peace sprouts only from the love and kindness showed towardsanother human or creature. Peace is renewed for those who seek.

The book speaks of religions, spirituality, parenting, and God or whom the author calls “Weshemehe.” This book was an interesting read and I read this book within a matter of a few hours. I was influenced to spend some time reflecting on my own life and how I could use this new information to start moving towards the person I want to be. As a parent of two teen boys, I felt that this book might help both of them in understanding the world around them and that they do have choices about how they act and their own behavior and how these characteristics can cause certain reactions in others.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to make changes in their lives or if they have children that are feeling lost. I think this book can help others not only learn about religions and spirituality, but to open the door to learning about oneself.
The author’s observations are thoughtful, broadly spiritual (without being pedantic), inclusive (without being overly moralizing), and emotionally transcendent.
Mr. Good takes quotes of an inspirational nature and builds his own unique thesis around these that takes the reader on a spiritual and personal journey through the author’s hardships and how he managed not simply to overcome these but how he managed to transcend them. In do this, Brian Good manages to offer a program of rebirth that will be helpful to a great many people.
Recommended for those seeking a way out of a toxic lifestyle that is contemporary, inclusive, and forgiving.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I’ve read a couple of books by the author, Brian Michael Good. I read them because I like to hear about folks who have overcome adversity and are now doing well in their lives. He is a perfect example of this. You wouldn’t believe what he’s been through in his life. The author covers a host of topics such as Spirituality, the Environment, the Balance of Nature, Parenthood. Love and Friendship, Breaking the Cycle of Abuse (he was abused as a child and young adult), Women Banned from the Bible, the Origin of the Gay Concept and how Christianity, Judaism and Islam have more in common that you might think, plus the author’s take on a lot more subjects that are interesting if not essential for us to consider. A pretty good book, deep and not so easy to read because of the heavy content, but worth it.
God has a plan and purpose for everyone's life. Everything is in divine order even the things we don't understand.
"Rather than listening to a person with a louder voice, empower yourself by listening to your inner voice." ~ Brian Michael Good
I have been meditating for the past 15 years and that is mostly responsible for my spiritual growth. When you seek God, God will reveal more to you and give you greater understanding.
Clearly the Bible was written by men and it is not an account of 100% of the events in the past. I do know that God will give you more understanding, beyond the pages of the Bible, therefore consider the Bible a foundation that you can build your spiritual growth on. You can't take the words of the Bible literal. God has a plan and purpose for Christians, Jews, Muslims and everyone else.
I think everyone should read this book; even if you don't agree with all of the views. This book will expand your capacity and help you to start questioning your beliefs, which I think is a great thing. The more good questions you ask yourself the more answers God will give you.
I am fortunate to have read this book at a moment in my life when I was confused with so many things in my head. The book just helped me to take a deep breath and focus on what matters most. I was even more inspired by the personal story of the author. We love moaning about what we don’t have, what we haven’t achieved. Look around you. You should be grateful for what you have and achieved. It’s the only way to get and achieve more. Thanks Brian for all these inspirational thoughts. Nothing less than five.
