Overview

James Twyman, a traveling troubadour, would risk his life to sing prayers of peace. But with the violence of Bosnia raging all around him, he made a journey to a secluded mountainous area. There he met a mystical community known as the Emissaries of Light, a secret society said to have existed for thousands of years, dedicated to the eternal flame of peace and the banishment of fear and mistrust from the world. The first outsider invited to observe the Emissaries' extraordinary meditations and their powerful effects, Twyman is plunged into an experience of revelation that changes him forever and inspires him to share this new vision for the world. As the Emissaries teach him their lessons, the simple man with the guitar learns an important truth: Despite war, cruelty, loneliness, and fear, peace is not just a dream, it is a powerful reality that already exists within all our souls. Peace is, in fact, our destiny. Emissary of Light has been passed from hand to hand across America, spreading its message of hope and the ancient wisdom of the Emissaries. Prophetic and profound, this is the writing of a man who now dedicates his life to helping us all become Emissaries of Light, as we ask ourselves and our society the most daring of all questions: Are we ready to bathe in the light? As the Millennium closes, are we ready to change the world?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
After some spiritual wandering, including training as a Franciscan brother and living in a community dedicated to studying the channeled work A Course in Miracles, Twyman, in 1994, became known as "The Peace Troubadour," playing guitar and singing peace songs for various religious and peace organizations. Feeling "led" to travel to Croatia and Bosnia, he wound up at a remote camp where he encountered the "Emissaries of Light," a group of people who meditated 12 hours a day, "extending Divine Light" out into the world. Twyman was told that this group has existed, in one form or another, "for thousands of years" in areas marked by extreme conflict. The Emissaries, writes Twyman, are "the guardians of the human race," keeping humanity from destroying itself as they work "to keep the doors of heaven open." Told that "humanity was on the verge of a spiritual awakening unlike anything that had ever happened before," Twyman was assigned to tell the world about the secret Emissaries, who soon will no longer be needed since enough people are now choosing love over fear. Twyman's story is full of long monologues that explain, in simplified language, what many readers will recognize as the tenets of A Course in Miracles. The book reads like pompous, didactic and talky fiction. Originally published in 1996 by Aslan, it joins the recent spate of spiritual adventure stories, which are starting to look like Bible comics for the New Age. Major ad/promo; simultaneous audio; author tour. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Much like James Redfield's Celestine Prophecy, Twyman's book of cosmic ramblings was picked up by a major publisher after initial success with a small house.
