Author of "Re-Member Yourself" and "Cipher's Den"
As a person who is a fusion of Spiritual Humanism and Pantheism, I appreciate the inclusive manner of this book. Not only has John done a fantastic job of showcasing the ‘Law of Reciprocity’ as the primary tenet of several different religions, but he's also managed to communicate that there's no "them" only "us in this iterary treasure.
AWAKE Life Coach
Rev. John Crestwell has mined the depths of several of the world's faith traditions and found within them the most precious gems of wisdom for the soul's progress and for the world's transformation. This book touches the deepest parts of the soul's quest for meaning, purpose and growth - and the answers are profoundly simple! An empowering read for complex and despairing times, this book offers clear, concise lessons for humanity.
I have been witness to everything John's written about in this book. He is not exaggerating these accounts. I have been profoundly changed in my own journey.
I can see this book in classrooms from high schools and higher, and in religious institutions.

I will happily add this book to my collection and could easily have a hard copy sitting on my bedside table to reach for as I end a busy day. I could also see you on a TED talk! This was fun to read.
This book is a refreshing look at key world religions. It highlights the core message at the heart of each these religions elucidated with Rev. Crestwell's personal insight. He caps each chapter with 7 clear and concise affirmations for applying the message to our lives; a quick start guide towards spiritual fulfillment.
Your book is really a treasure. I loved how accessible/readable it was and the personal stories. The message I needed the most was "you were meant to struggle with finding purpose." (And i want to put some of those affirmations on a poster in my house.) But all messages were so meaningful and so so thought-provoking. (The part about the effects of an assumed white jesus on non-white people, for example, was pretty eye-opening.) You are right, "Momma ain't raise no fool."
I really enjoyed reading this book. It's engaging and easy to read, and I like the way you draw insights from each tradition. This book is very "you" and your voice comes through clearly. It reminded me of your sermons, which I always look forward to and appreciate.
The chapter on synchronicity was the most interesting to me. He takes us through his personal struggles and triumphs in searching for what his life is meant to be. His story encourages us to move beyond our rational thinking and to be open to—indeed search for—guidance from the Ultimate Source in making our life decisions.
