I purchased the book based on a narrow view, however I was and am studying Biblical History and the life of Christ. Upon reading the preface, I was concerned with the writers call to open the windows of my mind and allow curiosity and the quest for knowledge to enter like a fresh spring breeze etc etc. An introduction of this nature to the wise, immediately sets of alarm bells. The scriptures are replete with directions on how we are to treat our mind and to keep it in submission to the Holy Spirit, through the washing of the water of the word Eph 5:26. Chapter one, the question is asked is it possible to travel through time and space and visit long lost civilisations. Is it possible to speak with those long lost dead etc etc. The writer then goes on to tell us that he has done this with regressive hypnosis. More alarm bells for the wise! The scriptures do not contradict themselves, Luke 16:26 "and besides all this, a great chasm has been fixed between us and you, so that even those who wish cannot cross from here to you, nor can anyone cross from there to us" This is the story of the rich man and Lazarus, that Jesus spoke of in Luke. The writer then speaks of reincarnation, as if to persuade us, that according to Jesus we can return to have another shot at life and perhaps get further up the ladder to a richer philosophy!! This philosophy is at complete odds with the words of Jesus and the writings of John the apostle. The Bible teaches that at death while man's body is mortal, decays and returns to dust, his soul and spirit continue on either in a place of torments(hell) for those who reject Christ or in paradise(heaven)in Gods presence for those who have trusted in the Saviour. Both categories of people will be resurrected, one to eternal judgement and the other to eternal life with a glorified body. John 5:25-29. The emphatic statement of the bible, as will be pointed out, is that "it is appointed unto men once to die and after that the judgement" Heb 9:27.
