Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soulby Richard Bach
Synopses & Reviews
"Where do you learn all this stuff, Don? You know so much, or maybe I just think you do. No. You do know a lot. Is it all practice? Don't you get any formal training to be a Master?"
In Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, Richard Bach met Donald Shimoda, a fellow pilot with the keys to the universe who barnstormed the Midwest in a Travel Air biplane.
Part of Shimoda?s secret was a small book, bound in what looked like suede: Messiah's Handbook, Reminders for the Advanced Soul. "Open it," he said, "and whatever you need to know is there."
Lost for decades and rediscovered, here it is in print at last — reminders for those who have outgrown cynicism and doubt.
"Richard Bach's at it again with Messiah's Handbook, having established himself as a significant spiritual voice for the masses." Magical Blend Magazine
The much-anticipated spin-off from one of the biggest-selling books of all time.
In 1970 Richard Bach wrote a little book about a seagull. In the thirty years since its publication, Jonathan Livingston Seagull has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. In 1977 Illusions: Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah was published, resulting in over 15 million copies sold. Donald Shimoda, the hero of Illusions, carried, and often quoted from, a small volume entitled Messiah's Handbook. For decades, Bach fans have had one wish: to read the handbook for themselves. In September 2004 that wish will come true.
Hampton Roads Publishing is very pleased to announce the publication of Messiah's Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul. Filled with more than 200 reminders, prophecies, proverbs, maxims, truths — whatever you want to call them — Messiah's Handbook is essential for those on the path to understanding.
"You just open it and whatever you need most is there" (from Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah).
This edition contains never-before-seen words of wisdom along with passages from many of Bach's previous books. And, as described in Illusions — it has a suede cover and is just the right size to fit in your pocket or the front cockpit of an old biplane.
A book in the vein of the "I Ching" or "The Book of Runes"--by the bestselling author of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull." "Richard Bach's at it again with "Messiah's Handbook," having established himself as a significant spiritual voice for the masses."--"Magical Blend Magazine."
