Editorial Reviews

Walter E. Conn
A book on spirituality shouldn't make you envious. But, I must confess, Timothy Muldoon's Come to the Banquet made me just that: envious, first of all, of the author—I wish I had written this wise and effective introduction to Christian life; and envious of the book's audience, today's young people—I wish I had read a book like this many years ago.

    Simplistic but Qualitative

    Ever so often in a persons life they dream of the possibility that somewhere, somehow, someone will show them something that will open their minds as well as their hearts and give their existence a whole new definition. It happened for me when I read, ¿Come to the Banquet¿. I consider myself to be a very open-minded reader I¿ve read from bibles to encyclopedias and never had I before now read something so profound. ¿Come to the Banquet¿ for me is the best book I have read to date. It is on a par with Reinhold Niebuhr¿s ¿The Nature and Destiny of Man¿ volume one. Many authors today write wonderful books but they write so complex that the average person would not understand. This book is written in a simple way but at the very same time very qualitative. While reading this book my entire outlook on love was that it was over rated and then I came across the chapter about love. It has the best notions and concepts of what it is to really love somebody, something, oneself and God. People go through life wondering what it is that they are here for. By reading this book I can honestly say that it gave me a greater outlook on things that I have questioned and most of all on the things I have tried to run from. It is brilliant when an author can really convey a message in such a way that it not only reaches an individual but it also leaves that individual wanting more. Dr. Muldoon you have not only redefine being conscious but also you have rekindled a flame that was hanging on by a thread. This book is like turning brass copper into purple silk ¿ for me it is simply that good. What made your book more interesting was that you used scenarios about everyday life ¿ that was genius it gave the reader something right here, right now to relate to. In this book the Christian view of man, which modern culture ostensibly rejects in its entirety but by which its estimate of human nature is influenced more than it realizes is really analyzed. Would I recommend this book to anyone? I have already done so. If I were the author what would I do not? They say that the first one is the true authentic and always the best but there are instances and circumstances when the second surpasses the first. With this book you have given me a whole new enlightenment and if for nothing else ¿ Thank you.
