I've bought this books 2 years ago, and only recently decided to read this one. It was my mistake, because book was very boring and sometimes I thought that author just begin to write about spirituality. I like begginers in this genre, but no Marianne Williamson. Maybe just because I compare this book with a crossing or the drop's history by Anatoliy Obraztsov. Maybe, if I compare Illuminata - A Return to Prayer with another book my review would be different...

I bought this and then didn't really read it to start with. But then I got in a bad place emotionally, and found the perfect prayer to deal with my problem. Now I use the book almost daily. The prayers are written with great love and compassion, and the table of contents breaks them down into subjects/situations.

......Then buy a copy of Marianne's book Illuminata. Marianne has a special gift for writing some of the most inspiriational material I have ever read. She has a deep sincerity for what she writes because she believes in the need for Love and support from a higher power. The words and prayers contained in this book help give meaning to those who are serious about being guided by the spirit in every aspect of their lives. The information and prayers shared in this book are written for all of us, not just those who have already have a deep prayer life. Come on, read this book. It "IS" worth every word and it will inspire you in one way or another.

I bought this book years ago and have found it to be so relative to our contemporary life and the times we live in. I give this book as a gift. It has never failed to bring me and those I have given it to encouragement and guidance.

I bought this book after going through a great tragedy in my life.  Unbelievably, despite a strict Christian upbringing, I had no clue how to really pray.  So every night in my grief and loneliness, I opened Illuminata and found the perfect prayer, the perfect words to bring me comfort and strength.  It altered my experience from one of despair to one of hope; this simple yet powerful act of surrendering to a higher power through prayer. These are decidedly beautiful words but so much more.  They come from an inspired heart and an illuminated spirit and can guide one out of the darkest night.  It is my most dog-eared, battered book, and my most beloved.

This book of prayers and meditations cover various topics that can be used in almost any occasion. It can be used as a daily guide on the path to devotion and enlightenment. It is beautifully written and carefully put together indicating much desire to seek out and find the presence of God.
