"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?"
"They give you a book to read."
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 Shimodas 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."
