5.0 out of 5 stars Seek Not Peace Here, But Find It Everywhere... 20 Nov 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have for quite sometime been a student of A Course In Miracles, but have had little success in applying the lessons into my daily life. I have been searching for something that would place the lessons into a context that I could more easily understand. Emissary Of Light is just that. Although not an intentional guide to "The Course," it does play an integral part in Mr. Twyman's tale, which is told in a most approachable manner. There were many instances where I felt as if the characters within his story; Teacher in particular, were speaking directly to me. With every turn of the page, it was as if I were hearing another cosmic tumbler finally falling into place. "Seek not peace here, but find it everywhere." When the student is ready, the teacher will come. Thank you James Twyman.

This story is sublime but the telling of it is hollow. This read like a report with a flimsy skeleton. I know several people who put the book down after reading a few pages and pronounced it boring. Too bad. Teacher's lessons are pearls, especially his first regarding fear. This book reveals the true meaning of the word "occult." Its gems are hidden but worth the dig.

"Emissaries of Light" is a much needed way-shower. Even if the 'secret brotherhood' that Twyman speaks about does not exist, it should! This message comes naturally enough from one of the most ravaged regions in the modern world. Like the recent, and even more incredible, "The Autobiography of Jesus of Nazareth and the Missing years" by Richard G. Patton, this is a timeless story to lift the Spirit - whatever your belief system. Like "The Autobiography...", "Emissary of Light" is a quest to recognise Soul within each of us. It must say something, that so many exceptional books are coming out in this present time? This is a book to be read if you are having any crisis of faith.

1.0 out of 5 stars Emissary of Light 1 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
This book disappointed me. I purchased this book having read the synopsis which indicated it was an autobiographical spiritual journey. It turned out to be a misrepresentation.....a simple figment of the authors (hallucinagenic?) imagination. It is all about Me, Me and Me! Mr. Twyman should stick to his forte ....singing his peace songs, for which he deserves his applause and recognition. As a self styled Guru he appears to be treading in the footsteps of other money making, egotistical, self styled spiritual leaders such as Sai Baba. My recommendation: Give the price of the book to your favourite charity!
