Is Eternity Already Here? by Christian Howard is a compelling non-fiction book that delves into the concept of eternity from a rather unique, logical, and fact-based perspective, in contrast to the typical religious beliefs that dominate the topic.
As the book begins, the author challenges our understanding of reality. He aligns with Einstein's viewpoint that reality is an illusion and employs logical reasoning in encouraging the reader to transcend the boundaries enforced by conventional laws of physics. The book combines spiritual insights with scientific ideas to unravel the concept of eternity, aiming to shift readers from divisive beliefs that lead to hatred to a more unifying spirituality rooted in love. It discusses the accounts of Dr. Eben Alexander, Dr. Mary Neal, and Anita Moorjani, people who died and somehow lived to tell the tale, explores encounters with a consciousness beyond physical laws, and suggests a connection between our existence and a dimension guided by shared energy. It also features personal anecdotes from the author's experiences as a hypnotherapist that enrich the narrative, offering valuable life lessons in this eye-opening exploration of eternity.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book for several reasons. First, I appreciated the thorough research that is evident throughout, as the book covers a wide range of topics like extraterrestrial involvement in history, advanced ancient technologies, and the potency of the human mind. I found the book's exploration of ancient Greek philosophy and its links to Christianity enlightening, particularly the emphasis on love as a gateway to a dimension beyond the material world. The author's arguments always relied on logic and maintained coherence, which contributed to the book's overall clarity. The book does well to weave together diverse threads of thought from a variety of religious figures and philosophers while incorporating scientific theories like string theory.
Personally, I have no reservations about the book and consider it to be an enlightening experience. However, I am concerned that readers who have a creationist worldview may be offended by some comments made in the book. I do not think the author adopted the right approach to criticizing people with a creationist worldview. On a personal note, I did not have an issue with this, but certain readers may. The author should consider rephrasing parts of the book.
I found no errors in this book. It was properly edited. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. The book was a very enlightening and thought-provoking read. I found no reason to deduct any stars from my rating. I recommend this book to lovers of spiritual and philosophical books.
