Overview

People of every religious tradition attribute transcendent moments of inspiration to the divine. However, when asked to define the Spirit of God, most people have only a vague sense of what it really is. In FIRE AND LIGHT, Jon Robertson searches for evidence of a unifying spiritual intelligence among the world'¬?s religious texts, scientific theories, and spiritual philosophies. This off-road quest leads him through the Bible, the Qur'an, and the Bhagavad Gita to psychotherapists, mystics, and even a retired sailor from Southern California. He interviews Larry Dossey, Charles T. Tart, Joan Borysenko, and Fred Alan Wolf, and discovers fresh ways to experience the divine through unconventional teachings, meditation, conscious living, and prayer. At the end of his pursuit, Robertson discovers a powerful and loving force accessible to everyone on the planet.Reviews"This beautifully written book-filled with inspiring stories, wisdom, and very practical advice; by turns intimate, warm, and funny-is for those who want to find or deepen their relationship with the Spirit or Presence of God, which is everywhere, in all times, and in all people. . . Before you have even finished it, you will trust-if you don't already-in both the reality of Spirit (through the dozens of stories of people like you and me) and in the complete availability of its presence in your life.If you are ready to find or deepen your oneness with the Spirit and are looking for a guidebook, Jon's will serve you better than any other I have seen. He and the Spirit have together brought forth a book of living water."-Stuart Dean, editor, Venture Inward Magazine"A fascinating search for the heart of spirituality, the flame at the core of all sacred experience, the rushing wind and blazing fire of the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit of the New Testament, and the fire and light of Hebraic tradition. This is fascinating and inspirational reading."-Allan Combs, author of Synchronicity and The Radiance of Being "Jon Robertson has written an excellent and thought-provoking work. We talk about the nature of spirit all the time without having a clear idea of what we mean. Jon takes the subject on and provides both interesting scholarship and real insight. He has written a charming and fascinating book that should be part of every library."-Stephan A. Schwartz, director of research at the Rhine Research Center and author of Opening to the Infinite

    Highly Recommend

    Fire & Light expresses a personal approach to experiencing the divine. The book links people of various centuries, regions, religions, and lifestyles through individualized but simultaneously universal experiences of divine spirit. Though the author incorporates plenty of historical context and facts, it is the unpretentious, honest, and open way that Robertson's theories and ideas are presented that make this book stand out. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in a down to earth, modern perspective of a timeless topic.

    How to Connect with the One Spirit

    Jon Robertson has provided a universal, nondenominational path to follow if your longing is to know Spirit, answering the questions you may have about how it has moved throughout history and how it is moving perhaps even more powerfully today. Many of us feel a wave of Spirit crossing the world at this time, whispering to open hearts and minds everywhere: ¿Awaken, awaken. It is time.¿ Perhaps you are also feeling the call to turn to Spirit. This beautifully written book¿filled with inspiring stories, wisdom, and very practical advice by turns intimate, warm, and funny¿is for those who want to find or deepen their relationship with the Spirit or Presence of God, which is everywhere, in all times, and in all people, guiding, inspiring, helping. Before you have even finished it, you will trust¿if you don¿t already¿in both the reality of Spirit (through the dozens of stories of people like you and me) and in the complete availability of its presence in your life. If you are ready to find or deepen your oneness with the Spirit and are looking for a guidebook, Jon¿s will serve you better than any other I have seen. He and the Spirit have together brought forth a book of living water. Stuart Dean
