Overview

A Soul’s Calling is a memoir about a man who listened to his heart instead of reason.

Scott, a forty-something attorney, is average in every way except one. He has a connection to the Other Side. He speaks to Spirit and Spirit speaks to him. He sees, hears, and interacts with an invisible realm that is beyond ordinary human perception. When Scott learns his soul has been spiritually compromised he travels to the ancient kingdom of Nepal to win it back. Once there, he hikes the Himalaya carrying a mysterious bundle and a stick laden with prayers from Luminous Beings hoping to come face to face with the greatest mountain on earth: Mount Everest. As his journey unfolds, Scott is called on to battle his fear of heights, the thin air, and his physical limitations.

A Soul’s Calling transports readers to the rugged but enchanting Khumbu Valley where mountains speak and nature is imbued with a special kind of magic. The novel is an inspiring modern day adventure that weaves the timeless themes of living an authentic life, the consequences of power, and what a man would do for unrequited love.

Part travelogue, part hiking adventure, A Soul's Calling blends elements of shamanism and magic as it brings the Himalaya to life in vivid detail. Powerful, sweeping, and deeply moving, readers will search their hearts as the book draws to a stunning conclusion.

Editorial Reviews

India - Rachna Chhabria
In the deft hands of the writer, the story undertakes an unputdownable quality....Scott's fluid narrative ensures that readers undergo the journey on every level....The senses are not just awakened, they are tugged in all directions with a melange of descriptions that will leave readers asking for more. Scott Bishop not only captures the graceful souls of the towering mountains, but he also reveals them to us.
New York, NY - Kirkus Reviews
A middle-aged lawyer hikes to Mount Everest's base camp to repair his soul....Arranged chronologically, each chapter covers one day of his nearly month long journey. The travelogue includes many rich, perceptive details about the glorious mountains, treacherous terrain, physical challenges, and the...various teahouses along the way.... A solid travelogue of a life-changing hike in Nepal....
Connecticut - Bookwormsdinner Blog

    A SOUL’S CALLING was an okay read for me. It wasn’t what I expected. I am all for self discovery and being in touch with your soul, but was disappointed with the “spiritual” aspects. I am definitely not into spirits and/or seeing/talking with them. I am very skeptical when it comes to this and so was disappointed. I agree that sometimes you have to listen to your heart and therefore I continued to read and did enjoy the aspects he describes such as the peacefulness and attraction to the Himalayan Mountains, the energies, and the beauty. Overall, not a bad novel

    From the start of the book, I could not put it down. It's truly an enlightening experience into the most questioned topic about Spirit visits when we are living after death. He communicates his messages very clearly and precise. There's no room for questioning, "What did he mean by that". A Soul’s Calling gave me insight, energy and created a feeling of peace I have ever felt after reading a book.

    A Soul’s Calling is soulful, insightful and informative. This book is truly a must read for anyone who has ever questioned life, love and loss. Scott Bishop’s writing encourages and challenges all to open our hearts, minds and souls to the universal law of love. He neither endorses nor disparages any religion yet beautifully validates that a God, by whatever name undoubtedly exists. His message inspires hope and remind us we are truly never alone, we all have a purpose and death is definitely not an ending. This has to be one of the most thrilling and fascinating books on the subject of higher realms that I have ever encountered. There is far more going on around us than we can ever imagine.

    A Soul’s Calling is also an in-depth look at spirituality from the perspective of a higher state of awareness. Angels and spirit guides that come from a place of non-judgment and love. They give us an unbiased look at modern day society, humanity and religion. Specific instructions are given on ways to improve our life, to improve our relationship with God and to receive personal guidance from the Heavens. A Soul’s Calling goes beyond what happens when we are alive and die. As a spirit inhabiting a human body, we learn what is really important about this earthly journey. Our perception of problems and heartaches are seen differently when viewed from the vantage point of an Angel or Spirit.

    FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Scott Bishop. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
