Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Cameron C. Taylor masterfully weaves ancient Hawaiian history and culture into an inspiring and engaging story set on the beautiful island of Lanai. You will be transported to a tropical paradise for an adventure of a lifetime. As you visit sacred locations throughout the island, you will be taught by a Hawaiian kahuna the principles for joyful living. You will see why Hawaii is consistently ranked as the least stressed and happiest place in the world. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Hawaiian kahuna unfolds powerful insights into the Gospel of Jesus Christ as he illuminates a more excellent way - the way of Aloha, the way of Zion.

Awesome

I can't express what I felt in listening and reading this book! The spirit that accompanies it is overwhelming. I wanted to be there learn along with Elder Taylor. I wanted to see and feel what they were feeling. The aloha was magnificent! Maholo

Combines best of Hawaii and LDS Christianity

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

The book is a short fictionalized account of the author's time as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and learning about and incorporating Hawaiian history and culture to illustrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ into our daily lives.

The story is mostly a framing device for powerful parables and examples of how the people of Lanai live the gospel and how one helps illuminate the other. It is thought provoking and emotional.

Benjamin Fife brings the characters to life. Sometimes I forgot it was one person voicing both of the main characters.

The characters are both LDS Christians and a few LDS specific terms are thrown around but outside of quotes from modern day prophets I'd say mainstream Christians should be able to appreciate 90% of the teachings.

Potential Trigger Warning: There is a brief discussion of abuse that one character suffered in the past. It isn't graphic, it is handled tastefully and helps inform the character but if that is a trigger be fore-warned.

Inspirational imparting of traditional wisdom.

First of all: "This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

The Way of Aloha: Lanai is a well-written inspirational story that imparts wisdom from traditional Hawaiian culture. The lessons are deep and meaningful, and can be applied to many situations and settings in life. And having associated with the author's family, I can attest to the fact that the lessons were well-learned and applied in his personal life.

The narration of the audiobook is extremely well done. The narrator does a great job of complementing the traditional wisdom with his confident tone and superb interpretation of the lessons learned.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone!

Uplifting and Inspirational

This book brings the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the simplicity we often miss in the Western World. Happiness and contentment is what God wants for us. Being able to see others not just as Christ sees them, but in fact as Christ changes the way you perceive everyone. God is Abundance. God is Light. This story can help you to realize you are already part of that abundance & Light. It's not about "someday we'll be in heaven," but rather be in heaven NOW.
The principles in this book are told in the way the Savior taught - Stories & Parables with a Hawaiian Twist.
I enjoyed the performance & emotion given to the characters, Especially Manu Napela.
I look forward to the next books in the series!

What a lovely, beautiful beautiful book!

This book points people to Christ, in the way of the ancient Hawaiians, as told by a returned missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
