This is one of those books you want to stay away from. It's mystical alright, but not truth. My Mom used to read this and it just got her eyes off Jesus. i was not a b ook that glorified the Lord, and it is not recommended for drawing you closer to the Lord. Whatever this man experienced, only God knows for sure, but I don't think that anything that draws you away from Jesus and the true meaning of Christianity is a 'good' read, 'good' book. Therefore, I say don't read it. It's not what you need. Stick with the scripture and true love for Jesus, you don't need to go to another man to find Jesus, just go directly to Him alone. He (Jesus) is the way, truth and life, nobody else. Don't waste your money or time on this, or fall into some sort of mystical web -- instead buy yourself a good Amplified Bible and read it. It will open your eyes to the scriptures as never before and you will grow strong in the Lord Jesus. God bless you.
