Neville Goddard was one of the quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years...In a simple, yet somehow elegant one-hour lecture, Neville was able to clarify the nature of God and God's relationship to every person. He spoke of God in intimate terms as though he knew god very well, which he did. --Roy Eugene Davis
About the Author
Born in Barbados, West Indies, Neville came to the United States to study drama at the age of seventeen. In 1932 he gave up the theater to devote his attention to his studies in mysticism when he began his lecture career in New York City. After traveling throughout the country, he eventually made his home in Los Angeles where, in the late 1950 s, he gave a series of talks on television, and for many years, lectured regularly to capacity audiences at the Wilshire Ebell Theater.
Although Neville s career peaked in the late 1950s and early 60s, his message continues to find a place in the hearts of spiritual readers throughout the world today. Neville Goddard was one of the more quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years.

I have been reading metaphysical type books for a while now, and I have a feeling that a lot of the other, more recent authors of metapysical self-help type books have probably read and studied books by "Neville" before they wrote their books. The thing is, this book has information that I hadn't read anywhere else before.
The title page has a sentence under the title that says:
"Man's faith in God is measured by his confidence in himself" -Well, that struck me as interesting right off the bat.
Neville says that "When man sees the Bible as a great psychological drama with all of its characters and actors as the personified qualities and attributes of his own conciousness, then-and then only- will the Bible reveal to him the light of its symbology." The author reveals what many of the popular stories in the Bible really mean.
As I was reading this, I was thinking about the material that is presented here, and I wondered why I hadn't come across this gem of a book earlier. Then I realized that all things come to us at just the right time. I can see where, depending on one's beliefs, the material here could well be rejected by some who have been conditioned to beleive differently. As far as that goes, I feel that each one of us knows when something rings true for us, as well as when it doesn't. That's the thing you have to look for in any information that comes across your path.... ask yourself if it feels right for you.
This book really made me think about things differently. In a positive way. To me, this book is a treasure!
The book consists of rather short chapters. Each chapter is devoted to a certain biblical theme which Neville takes into discussion. Then he will proceed to explain you the spiritual and psychological truths that the theme includes.
This book is about spiritual awakening and understanding the power of your consciousness... not so much about self-help as self-help is generally understood as get-rich quickly scheme.
If you are looking for get-rich-quick books -- this title is not for you. However, if you seek to understand the deeper meaning of the Bible - this is a book to buy.
If you think you know your Bible, I challenge you to buy this book for your perception is going to change as a result of reading this book.
First off, this is very much based in the Bible. This was not a bad thing necessarily (for me anyways) but I was just not expecting it and I feel like that put me at a disadvantage in terms of being able to understand the message of his writing because I have very little experience with the Bible. So his references to specific scripture did not help me much. That being said, his references to specific scripture was not a detriment either.
The other thing about this book is that his prose, or manner of writing, is rather lofty and ostentatious which is rather hard for me to understand. Its sort of one of those situations that I'd read a paragraph and then think "Hmm...okay...I wonder what this guys is saying." I suppose my take on it is that I don't have a problem with his message (from what I can understand of it anyways), but I am not crazy about his delivery. I just didn't find his style to be very use-friendly.
For such a slim book, I have not made it very far. I am going to keep trying.
