Early this morning I downloaded a 339 page Kindle version of "The Essenes: Children of the Light". It's one of those metaphysical text. I just recently finished another called "Beyond Limitations", one of the books by the same authors as wrote this book on the Essenes.
It took me most of the day but I read the entire 339 page book. Better than an Agatha Christie murder mystery. Most of the reviews on this book are positive and I would certainly agree. To be sure, once you start reading it, it's almost impossible to put down. No question about that.
It provides a very interesting perspective on the Essenes, a religious group reported to have heavily influenced the teachings of Christ during his time on earth. It seriously challenges traditional Protestant and Catholic doctrine—mostly turning it on its ears. Based on material 'channeled' by several different individuals it presents an extremely compelling presentation on the life, death and meaning of Christ' life, as well as a wealth of information on the Essenes and related historical events at the time. Is the narrative true? Maybe. I supposes it's about as believable as the idea that we are reincarnated through many lives and many experiences. Of reincarnation, I'm becoming more and more convinced that it's a valid process. I'll leave the details of the book to the reader—no spoiler alerts here—but I will say that even if much of it is somebody's idea of creative writing, and I'm inclined to think that it isn't, this book brings home the point of what I personally have long thought was the purpose of Christ ministry—and it wasn't to start a new religion.
Download the book but make sure you have a free day to read it. You probably won't be able to put it down either.
