First Sentence
Considering the gentle elements of serendipity that helped define my sixteen-year friendship with Jane Roberts, the fact that I'm writing this introduction today, more than fifteen years after her death, strikes me as not only ironic but amazing, and a wee bit impertinent besides. Read the first page

Though the title says "God of Jane", the book actually takes us to the human side of Jane Roberts. Known as the channel for Seth, Jane Roberts became to many like a superhuman, a position she herself disliked intensely. In the book she steps down from the pedestal so many people have placed her. She shares with us how she became a channel for Seth and how she herself worked hard to put Seth's material into her own life. We take part in her ups and downs and in her personal experiences and reflections on how Seth's material influenced her life. A great book by a small woman who became a channel for some of the strongest, most convincing voices from "the other side".

Fascinating, informative reading for students of metaphysics 24 Feb. 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The late Jane Roberts (1929-1984) is best remembered by students of metaphysical studies for her "Seth" books. In The God Of Jane, Roberts bravely questioned the very material she produced in those many volumes of the Seth series, as well as her own psychic abilities. Regarding, The God Of Jane, she wrote "This book is the story of my efforts to put Seth's material to work in daily life; to free myself from many hampering cultural beliefs; and most of all, to encounter and understand the nature of impulses." As all of her earlier works, The God Of Jane will prove fascinating and informative reading for students of metaphysics, psychology, spirituality, and self-realization. Two additional and highly recommended Jane Robert's titles are her Adventures In Consciousness (0966132734) and Psychic Politics (0966132742).

A Rollicking, Revealing Glimpse into Jane Robert's Life 19 Oct. 2001
By Joseph B. Mullen, Psychic Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A true fan of all the Seth books, I have read them many times over. Often, however, I find myself coming back to this book when I especially need inspiration. In it you will find several fascinating Seth sessions (including discussions of a revolutionary approach to life called "Framework 2"). But more than any other book by Jane Roberts, it is in THE GOD OF JANE that she really lets her hair down. For the first time we learn of her painful experiences as a child on welfare, caring for a sickly and emotionally difficult mother. Plus how she overcame these and many other obstacles to eventually become the woman who spoke for Seth.

One of the most important books you've never read.... 20 Dec. 2008
By Mark S. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is quite simply one of the most important books ever written on the subject of the origin of religion. It offers a fresh view from a unique perspective and offers insights that really nobody but Jane Roberts could ever conceive. With unswerving courage she blazes a new path for those with the patience to try and understand what she is saying. A truly remarkable achievement that has been completely and utterly overlooked by mainstream anything, which is a pity, because this book has something very important to say. Maybe in the decades to come Jane Roberts will get the credit she deserves for forging a better path for humanity.

Challenging your beliefs 4 Jun. 2010
By Haran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book represents the author's quite discriminating views from many years of being a channel and being exposed to an extraordinary amount of highly insightful channelled information. It is really all about our beliefs and how they affect our lives in very fundamental ways and often without even being consciously aware of them. As always, this can be applied in positive and negative ways.

The book is quite challenging because we invariably think that our views are right and any questioning of our beliefs is interpreted as a personal attack instead of recognizing that all our beliefs are based on what we were taught by others i.e. their beliefs, or from our own quite selective experiences. Also, often we simply follow the general consensus. Although we know that everybody once believed that the earth was flat we would never admit that any of our present cherished beliefs could be faulty or completely wrong and we would immediately shout `blasphemy' it somebody dared to ask about the foundations of our religious beliefs.

But this is precisely what the author does. She probes deeply into the controversial issues, such as how nations were shaped by their God concepts, how the outlook on life is determined by religious dogmas (beliefs which are portrayed as absolute truth), how scientific beliefs deny the validity of subjective experiences or the existence of meaning in life, how we buy into psychology portraying us as hopeless failures, or, in a rather self-critical way, how channeled information can be completely misinterpreted. All of these issues are man made and they could all retard us in many ways.

She is not saying that there is anything wrong with beliefs per se, but that we should allow our beliefs to change. In fact she offers new ways of looking at various issues. In particular she stresses the importance of following impulses in our lives because they enable the expansion of consciousness and creative fulfilment and they are a constructive way of getting out of limiting beliefs.

This is an excellent and challenging book for questioning your beliefs.

Moving, liberating and simply majestic 13 Dec. 2011
By Kali Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I feel incredibly blest to have read this book. To me Jane came to life, literally, as I read it. When I got to her "Psychic Manifesto" poem I wept at the import and depth of it. She put words to what my heart and mind were already feeling; her eloquence is loving, magical and heroic. I found myself saying, in a barely audible voice since I was in public when I first read the poem, "Thank you, Jane. I can feel you right here next to me." I immediately went home and read it out loud about four more times and each time tears rolled down my eyes at the recognition, liberation and affection that filled my being as I did. Since I agree with Jane/Seth that there is no such thing as a coincidence, this student was ready hence teacher Jane appeared. It is comforting and I am grateful beyond words to have her during this part of my journey.

Like her I had, even as a very young child, railed at God/religion bec all I could see was the hypocrisy of the church and the stupidity of its teachings. Little did I know that I had missed the other big piece of dogma floating around in my consciousness called science. That all got cleared up here, pronto quick. It was so big that I couldn't see it, basically.

I could never do justice to this book. Read it and experience the journey for yourself. Certainly every reader will be affected by it uniquely. The reading of it, as it becomes part of your atoms and cells, will create something extraordinary that though cannot be seen by the eyes will be felt by all of creation. <3
