Joel Goldsmith is a modern day mystic and has a refreshing grasp of the spiritual/metaphysical aspect of reality--which is, in actuality, the source of all reality. I really like this guy. He'll expand your mind, for sure.

Joel Goldsmith wrote quite a few books in his lifetime, but the Infinite Way succintly summarizes what he came to believe and practice. The interesting aspect is - despite his Christian background - his affinity to Zen. He shows us that mystics and masters of different religious backgrounds often end up saying the same things, because there is only the Oneness - the I AM that I AM. For those of you who like Joel, I would also recommend Virginia Stephenson.

This book, published in 1947, is generally regarded as the basic work presenting Goldsmith's spiritual system, The Infinite Way. I'm a great admirer of Goldsmith's other works, all the ones I've read so far, but I personally do not feel that this book has the same quality as his later works. I venture to say this though all the reviews of this book on the US Amazon site, at any rate, are rave reviews. I beg to differ.

One of the reasons for my lack of total appreciation for this book is that I li

Joel Goldsmith is one of my favorite authors. I learned so much about life and the world, but most importantly The Way. It's a Christian based read but much more than what is in the Bible. It is how to see life and to take on a perspective that is much more than just obedience. It's understanding Truth.

Awesome book!! Can't believe the depth of spiritual insight Joel had back then. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand grace. Without a revelation that man is one with God, this book might tweak ya a little bit.:) Hands down one of the best books I've had the pleasure of reading in awhile and I work at a

This is the second of Joel Goldsmith's books that I've read (the one I read isn't leather bound and I'm not sure why Goodreads insists on listing different hardcover and softcover versions of the same book). I enjoyed "Practicing the Presence" a bit more than this one, but I'm going to reread "The Infinite Way" because I'm sure I read it too quickly.

Goldsmith has a definite message and one that I agree with. He writes well - I'm sure he had a very good editor - and his language is clear and to

This book contains a lot of spiritual wisdom that seems to me to be gleaned mostly from eastern religions and philosophy yet there is a lot of reference to the bible. I don't think he used the word enlightenment (for example) but does use expressions such as 'spiritual illumination'.

I enjoyed the last 2 chapters (the new horizon and the new jerusalem) which are descriptive of what it's like to be in the final realized state. This reminded me of the sacred sanskrit 'ashtavakra gita'.

This book is beautiful and awakens your soul. It challenges you to let go of illusions and live in reality that is freeing. A reality that is God-consciousness and not from mans predisposed rules or religion.
It speaks to you heart and you immediately want to expand it.
We should consciously remember that all who come within range of our thought and activity must be blessed by the contact, because we are a law of love; we are the light of the world. - Joel S. Goldsmith

This is my first Joel Goldsmith book. The book does a competent job of stripping away common misconceptions about mistaking material reality for all reality that includes the divine from a Christian context. The book also does a decent job of explaining spiritual concepts of Jesus' mastery over the material world and plugging into or becoming the divine that is already in us. What is lacking is the connection between thought and being. This may be a matter of his skill as a writer but it also ha ...more

The Infinite Way is a beautifully written book that addresses the way to live life at the highest level of spiritual consciousness. The book concerns the Way or teaching of Jesus Christ, but in a very general manner drawing on the message of other religions. Joel Goldsmith wrote in very clear and simple terms, but having a very deep message as he explains "The activity of Truth in the individual consciousness is the only Christ." If you have a love for spiritual books, The Infinite Way is a must

Excellent book on the God-experiences of a Christian Mystic. I highly recommend this if you are interested in healing or a different perspective on living out your Christian faith.

I struggled through 140 pages & threw in the towel. I'm not particularly smitten with the artist's style of writing, I didn't find any profound truths, just some esoteric ramblings.

Although the book is written with a Christian influence, Joel Goldsmith's take on this subject is quite readable and thought provoking.
