I do know that the healing method outlined in this book works.I was bedridden for nearly a year with a severe blood disorder... and the MD's had given up on me. I applied the healing method I found in the Essene Gospel of Peace Book I... eating a diet of raw fruits, vegetables and sprouts... and fasting to cleanse the toxic matter out of the body. My healing was like walking out of a cloud of fog.
I believe that the Essene Gospel of Peace Book I is one of the most important books ever published on health, healing, diet and spiritual living ever published.

Having acquired all four of the Essene Gospel of Peace Books, I have come to find Book II both compelling as well as enlightening beyond my wildest expectations! In easy to read translations, Edmond Bordeaux Szekely has added great wisdom and insight into our modern day world. One will not find it hard to understand these translated ancient scriptures in the least! For anyone even remotely interested in the Essene's, their scriptures translated from the Dead Sea Scrolls or anyone interested in exploring new paths toward Peace, I recommend this Book as well as the full series hands down! Well worth the money as well as time spent reading you will not be disappointed! Do something good for yourself and your soul and get these books!

In the actual translated gospel from it make reference to several things one should follow to ensure that one has long prosperous life disease free, making references that anything outside of this lifestyle was the ways of Satan, disease or bad. Although it was not written till 300 years after Christ, one could debate how close it was to the actual words or could possible reflect their believes and philosophies. But why it has never been available to the public for individual interpretation is really unknown. But is probably related to why much of the Dead Sea Scrolls still remain locked away from our eyes by religious authorities. Both contemporary Christian and Jewish scholars, in conjunction with modern religious authorities, feel that the general population "is not competent enough to interpret" what is in the scrolls. I wonder if these contemporary writings are too challenging to the modern religious dogma, with which most people are familiar? What may be in them is a way of life that these religious authorities aren't willing to change.

There are many that try to discredit Edmond Szekely, but anytime something challenges are way of think religiously or scientifically, people always do! If you read all 4 books you will be amazed at some of the profound information that was written. If only most of this is the truth, it is truly amazing that this could have been written 1700 years ago and even if this Edmond Bordeaux Szekely, Ph.D. added some twist of his for some reason upon interpretation, it still is pretty profound in the 1930's. It has only been in the last 70 years that science has been coming to the same conclusions about raw foods, enzymes, nutrition and foods being heated above 118 F. Once you try raw foodism for a year you'll see why this book in particular is so important.

Another profound things the Dead Sea Scrolls teach is order the law. First law is raw food, once that law is broken, you have the 10 commandments, once these laws have been broken you have the law of 5000. Then you have the mess we have today. Believe it or not, the food you eat effects you more than any other outside influence and if you want proof of it start looking at nature and see how the foods of wild animals influences them. Grass grassing animals always have a calm about them, flesh eating animals are aggressive and sugar loving animals like apes are neurotic. Are you or your friend so different? Our domestic pets and we are the only species that do not eat raw food. Why do our domestic pets have the same physical aliments we do, but these problems really do not occur in true wild nature? Simple, when you get away from man made toxins and eat true organic wild raw foods & drink fresh water, disease does not exist.

Last it gives us a clue about what foods are most important to us and it states that God sleeps in stone, breathes in plants, dreams in animals, and awakens in man. (Minerals)

The Essene gospel of Peace focuses on the brotherhood of all living things. Many teachings of Jesus that were edited from the bible in the fourth centuty are preserved here. Some include: the teaching about the humble grass, The sevenfold peace, and The paths of attainment. The book was found in the archives of the vatican, and was written by the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls. In the book we learn that Jesus was a member of the Essene order and was sent out to teach the people how to live in harmony with nature. The book goes on to detail how the reader can attain knowledge of the hidden mysteries Jesus taught.

This is one of the more inspired books that I have read. As is often said, it is academic to ascertain whether these are the true words of Jesus. What is salient is that one listens to the spirit speak inside you to determine the value of the words.
This book is very short. In short, the book outlines the importance of diet, fasting, and practices that will invite purity into the body. What is more important than these simple mechanics - however - is the greater idea that you cannot defile the one place that houses a direct communication with God - your body. To paraphrase: if you eat of death, you inherit death.
Excellent and inspiring.

I was also skeptical but if you apply the ideas in this book to your life you will see nothing but positive results. The review that discredits the author is irrelevant because another author by the name of Arnold Ehret discovered this way of living quite a few years before the dead sea scrolls had even been discovered. Arnold Ehret figured out this way of living by testing it out on himself and was living proof. His methods are identical to the ones taught in this book.

Based on the authors depiction of the essenes, it may be doubtful as to whether or not this author correctly compared, edited and translated the text from the Aramaic manuscript and old Slavic text. Whether or not someone can verify this I don’t know, however the information that is there is peaceful, informative and somewhat instructive and can at lease shed some light on the thinking of these east African desert holy men. There is important instruction on how to renew oneself thru prayer and fasting, how to prepare ones food to avoid disease, how to cleanse oneself from within and without, what to eat, how to eat, how to sleep. You must seek the angels of air and water of the forests and of the fields and lastly if needed the angel of sunlight in the appropriate places. For according to translation “no one can reach the heavenly father unless through the earthly mother.” This part of the text speaks for itself.
