This is a terrific book for anyone looking for Spiritual Enlightenment and wants to better their lives through a closeness to God.

I met a lot of interesting people when I was a reporter. It's one of the few things I miss about the profession. One of the most interesting was a woman I met on Weir Farm.

This is a collection of pamphlets the Emmet Fox wrote. The first third of the book is analysis of several Psalms. The second third is the way to pray and meditate, and the last third is a description of reincarnation. I found the first two-thirds very interesting and the last third pretty far out there.
This author's thoughts on the Lord's Prayer, and various key chapters in Psalms are very, very good. However, his ideas about life after death and reincarnation are unconventional. I also disagree when he says we have power over sickness and other misfortunes if only we change our thinking. But what of those who do not get well? Should they feel guilty about having failed to learn proper thinking and prayer?
