I had read books by Mr. Eddy before and this one follows the pattern of the others. He is very consistent with his books and their contents. The sections have clear divisions, so the reader will not be lost even when they decide to stop reading and pick it up again at another time.
I always did enjoy how the author uses the poetry format for his books. It makes it extremely easy to read, and although it does contain a few things that are repeated constantly, the author does say this in the beginning, on the Index.
The book is definitely not for everybody, it takes a lot of time to go through it and as I had already mentioned, a fair bit of repetitiveness. But it is inspiring in the sense that every passage you read contains a great deal of positivity, and sometimes when you read things like this and it gets repeated, it ends up being instilled in your memory even better.
Throughout the book, some readers might be confused by who the author means by “My People” and “My Spirit”. If this turns out to be the case for you, just keep reading because eventually the understanding will come. The book talks about “eyelids” and “veins and arteries” of man in a spiritual sense, and it is important for the reader to understand that and grasp the proper context.
Overall the book is enjoyable to read, it is motivational and spiritually inspirational! Kudos once again to Mr. Eddy!

I loved the little explanation on the first page about the cover image. The contents page was very helpful for me and I imagine it would be even more helpful in a print version if someone were in need of wisdom on a specific topic.
I came to this book as an agnostic person interested in the study of spirituality in general, including christianity. So my views are definitely coming from an academic point, not someone who is a believer in any religion. I can only imagine that someone who IS already a believer might potentially be offended by the idea offered in the introduction that the author is writing as god dictates.
I would usually class myself as a fast reader when I read for pleasure. This book was not fast for me to read. If I read at my usual speed, I felt like I was missing nuances that might be important. This appears to be a book meant for serious study, not one someone would read for pure pleasure. For someone who reads as someone reading a myth or children’s tale, not taking it as literal truth as intended but instead searching for deeper meaning behind the words, this book is intriguing to study. I found myself reading some of the poems multiple times and I believe some of the poems may contain stuff that is True universally rather than specific religion things.
Despite not being a fast and fun read, the book does seem to make the study of theology accessible to the masses as long as they’re patient readers. It’s much easier to read this than a bible.

This book was much like reading a poem, or even parts of the bible itself. The book has an abundance of information about Jesus and the love he has to offer you. This is about God's purpose for us, not about man's purpose for man.
God speaks to us in many different ways and this book is one of those amazing and unique ways God shows his love. You will need patience and an open heart to read this book. It's so full of God's word, and amazing poetry that any religious, or even non religious people, will find the true beauty inside.
What an amazing and beautiful way for God to express his love for man. The poem like book also goes into detail of how Satan is full of evil and to ignore his cries and stay on God's side. This book even includes God's end of time prophecy. God has said in the bible that he will destroy the world and there is a poem that I felt shows the beauty in God cleansing the Earth of all evil. It's an amazing concept that God wants us to live in such harmony that he would go to such extents to make this possible for us.
Read this book to understand the message that Jesus is there for you to love him, and for him to love you back. His love is eternal and will never falter. He will forgive you and take the evil out of your soul and replace it with love.
I gladly give this book 5/5 because you can't dock points for Jesus.
