I loved the content of this book and will certainly continue purchasing and listening and/or reading Sylvia's books. However, I had a difficult time making it all the way through this one due to the narrator. Sylvia, please narrate your own books. Part of the message is lost when someone else narrates them. Also, I really did not care for the narrator's voice.
That the impressions Sylvia received from her guide is compatible with the recent papers submitted by deep Biblical scholars regarding the unedited (by the early and subsequent versions of "the church") life of the historical Jesus Christ.
The plot with Pontius Pilate. Something that I had never before considered, but plausible. Very stimulating idea.
Excellent inflection, timing, and timbre of her voice.
Smiled a great deal and stirred my heart deeply.
I highly recommend to all Sylvia Brown fans. One of her best.
The book is well written with clean and logical flow.
The "story" is not really "a story" at all. What true revelations!
Perfect inflection and clear speech.
No more need for "fairy tales"...
The Mystical Life of Jesus makes logical sense of the inconsistencies and contradictions with which I've struggled while studying the New Testament. More importantly, for me, the information contained herein feels true and right in my consciousness and confirms my own conclusions that I've discerned over the years, but kept to myself as they certainly would not be accepted by mainstream Christianity.
Jesus Christ is and will always be my best connection to God as I need the "bridge" He and His teachings provide. Now, with the "permission" to include Mary Magdalene as one of the great inspirational figures of my Belief System, the entire picture provides even more empowerment than prior to reading the book.
Looking forward to more LIGHT on this subject as perhaps it will provide enlightenment towards true Peace and Tolerance in the World.
I have really enjoyed reading Sylvia Browne's books but this was the first I've listened to. I had to keep an open mind and decide what information I wanted to keep and what I wanted to throw out because it didn't feel right to me. I like to get new perspectives to mull over and this certainly allowed me do that. I have one request of Sylvia- PLEASE do not narrate your own books! This one was thankfully narrated by someone other than Sylvia, but I have put off purchasing others because they are narrated by her. Love Sylvia as an author, but she does not have the voice to narrate.
