An all-true accidental spiritual adventure that led one non-believer to lunch with Deepak Chopra, dance with Stephen Hawking, heal with Yogananda, banish evil spirits with Buddhist lamas, find true love in a Presbyterian church choir, share Celtic revelations on the isle of Iona, talk all night with the Daughters of Islam, and learn an abiding respect for all paths to God.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;When Jessica Maxwelland#8212;nationally acclaimed adventure-travel writer and self-professed spiritual klutzand#8212;saw a vision of her fatherand#8217;s face filling the sky three days after his death, she had no idea that it foreshadowed a dizzying spiritual journey.

Filled with witty insights and breathtaking revelations, Roll Around Heaven retells nearly two decades of an all-true accidental spiritual adventure.

Annie Oaklee, January 25, 2011 (view all comments by Annie Oaklee)
I was just a casual browser in Powell's until I came upon this book, read the notes on the back cover and froze -- gaping. What Author Jessica Maxwell described as a spiritual experience involving her recently deceased father had also happened to me under similar circumstances. And I hadn't thought about my father in years!

I had to have this book! What makes it even more fun, in a spiritual way, is that Ms. Maxwell is a 'local', describing locations, friends and experiences that occurred right here along Eugene, the McKenzie and landmarks in between.

Highly recommended despite some glaring typos (find Stephen King's name spelled twice, once incorrectly, on the same page). Maybe the second printing will get them all cleaned up.
