Books of this importance and intelligence come along rarely. Wandering Beyond the Darkness is an absolute must-read for anyone who struggles with faith, love, and the continuum of life after death. Whether 19 or 90, we all search for understanding. For thousands of years, our religious and spiritual comprehension has been defined by a codified doctrine that was initially established by illiterate nomads living in tents. These now-faded cultures were attempting to provide some historical consensus concerning their creation. Instead of taking these ancient, verbal stories as symbolic, we have invested them with literal meaning and now accept them as the words of God. In Wandering Beyond the Darkness: One Man’s Journey Through Religion and Spirituality, Ian Barrett uses reason and humour to put religion and spirituality into perspective. After researching thousands of documents, the author has taken a personal journey of awareness and discovery… a voyage that can help others on a similar pilgrimage.
