  • The Power of One

    "Serendipity"

    Overall

    I came across this book because it had somehow been featured on the Religion and Spirituality page of Audible ? mistaken, I presume, for ?The Power of Now?. However some mistakes are serendipitous and having read the reviews I selected it, and I have to say it is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. Superbly well read, constantly engaging ? I never found that my mind had wandered and I had to rewind ? and a cracking good story. My only complaint would be to observe that Peekay is a little too brilliant at everything he does to be entirely believable ? but heh, it is fiction after all...

    I will certainly be listening to more from Bryce Courtenay!

The prophecies foretell that this is the point when the seven-year Tribulation shall become the Great Tribulation, with the forces of evil tightening their grip on humanity in preparation for the final battle. As the world mourns the death of a renowned leader, the Tribulation Force looks for the next predicted sign, that Satan will take possession of the Antichrist and raise him from the dead!

    For 300 years, The Pilgrim's Progress has remained perhaps the best-loved and most read of devotional fictions. In plain yet powerful and moving language, Bunyan tells the story of Christian's struggle to attain salvation and the Gates of Heaven. He must pass through the Slough of Despond, ward off the temptations of Vanity Fair, and fight the monstrous Apollyon. In Part II, his wife and children follow the same path, helped and protected by Great-heart, until for them, too, "the trumpets sound on the other side."

    True spirituality requires that one develop a cosmic consciousness. Words are the containers by which the power of the Spirit (Universe) is shipped into the realm of the material world. It's critical for a spiritual man, a cultural warrior to achieve a state of clarity, within which he will be able to handle the power of the Spirit. The fundamental challenge for the warrior is to bring the immensity of the power of the Spirit alive in the Universe to bear on the circumstances of everyday living.
