7 Days with Adam by Jay Speights my review


 7 Days With Adam is a brilliantly crafted work about Adam, the
first man, who visits the author and shatters many of his core beliefs
about God, creation, the basic nature of humans and this world. He has
astonishing revelations about his and Eve's real legacy. After the 7 day
visit, he leaves the author enlightened with actual exercises, prayers and
meditative techniques that we can all use to access our Divine Inner Power
and achieve mastery in our lives. This book is a testament to the value of
storytelling in spirituality, and to disciplined spiritual practice, as
well as being attuned to the Higher Self and Divine Inner Light that is in
all of us.

My Review:  

What would you do if someone from the Bible showed up in your living room?!?!

I have no idea how I would react but I am sure my first response would be to be scared witless. Once I got over that and believed my visitor was really a holy visitor I would go nuts with questions. I am sure I would have a million and how would I get everything answered in a week?

This is an amazing account of the authors time spent being visited by Adam the first man of the bible. It is educational and faith testing. Much of what is in this book I am practicing already in my new age beliefs and others I am giving a try as you read this.

Give this a read with an open mind and an open heart. You may enjoy it as much as I have.
