Sounds like a MYTH to me!
|TITLE:||Beyond the Myth|
|AUTHOR:||Maria T. Holmes|
“Beyond the Myth” by Maria T. Holmes is a well-illustrated book with many beautiful pictures and some thought provoking quotes. If the book contained only the quotes and pictures, it would have a permanent place on my coffee table.
The problem is with the text.
“Beyond the Myth” is based on the “Law of Attraction”. As I understand it, this law promotes the idea that people control their own life and situations. If a person puts out positive energy, then positive things will happen. A quote from the book says, “If you want something to happen and you are able to focus enough intellectual and emotional energy on it, you can make it so.”
Though the author does use some quotes from the Bible in her book, the discerning reader will quickly discover that the concepts she presents are not in line with Biblical teaching.
My suggestion is that you buy the book, enjoy the pictures and quotes but ignore the text.
