5.0 out of 5 stars Have to get my own copy! 11 May 2009
Format:Paperback
A friend loaned me his copy as he knows I like alternative thinking. At first I thought the author had gone crazy. I'm glad I didn't give up half way though. This is one of the strangest books I have read and it's a bit of a stretch to even take in it's messages. Having said that - there is undeniably a ring of truth to some of the ideas and it certainly challenges conventional thinking.

If you want something to make you think it certainly requires you to open your mind to possibilities that you may not have considered before.

It may not be true but I think I'll start drinking Camomile tea anyway, just in case!

By breezer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
very entertaining book, although it took a long time coming, but on the bright side it was worth waiting for. however did read in one day, so if it's something to get your teeth into, possibly will not hit the mark. As with all stuart wilde books there is hidden stuff inside them, just keeep looking, overall a grear read

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Alternative To Mainstream New Age Spirituality 7 May 2003
By Malcolm Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've read most of Stuart Wilde's books (my favourite being "Infinite Self") and I've learned a great deal from them, about myself and the world we live in. "God's Gladiators", however, is unlike any of his other books. It is highly controversial, not only because of the subject matter, but also because of the author's unique perspective on these subjects.
"God's Gladiators" covers a variety of topics, but the two dominant themes are the transdimensional nature of UFOs/Aliens and 'The Sphere' (which the author likens to the concept of 'The Matrix'). Both topics will make your head explode! Stuart tackles the tricky subject of UFOs with a refreshing theory - that UFOs and the Greys are really non-physical entities (beings from the Astral/Etheric). He supports this theory with research, logic, and personal experience. If you have any knowledge of OBE/Astral Projection, and/or Negative Transdimensional Beings, you will immediately comprehend the horrific implications of this theory. Knowledge of the Astral is the key to unlocking the UFO enigma (For those interested in Negative Entities, I'd also recommend "Practical Psychic Self Defence" by Robert Bruce). Stuart also develops a unique concept which he calls 'The Sphere'. It is essentially a control mechanism which underlies the fabric of reality, keeping us trapped while Transdimensionals feed off our etheric energy. He further explains how all our religions and values are deceptively designed to trap us even further in the sphere. The remainder of the book attempts to give instructions on how to free one's Self from the sphere.
Having delved into the confused mass of (dis)information on UFOs and extraterrestrials which plague the 'controversial' sections of our bookstores, as well as the corrupted and simplistic 'spiritual' concepts found in most religions, and the ridiculous 'new age' fluff which is anything but new, I found Stuart's perspective both enlightening and entertaining. This is a very fun book, which will shift your perception of life and reality if you are open minded and detached from limiting belief systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will astound you! 5 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Gods Gladiators is truly a remarkable book. You will have to read it 2 or 3 times before you come to grips with the contents.
Stuart Wilde does give a warning, a couple of chapters in and you proceed at your own risk. After the first reading I wondered why Stuart Wilde has gone ahead and published this book now, because to come out and write as he has in God's Gladiators is to make yourself a target. But Stuart has never shied away from the difficult . As his legacy of books is testiment to.
In Gladiators,Stuart talks from his personal experience in the heyday of the new age and how it was doomed from the start. Another of the tricks played on humanity. It would be easy to become depressed after reading Gladiators, if it wasn't for Stuart irrepressible humour and optimism. As he points out, humanity has fooled itself, and been fooled into believing it is in charge, as we relentlessly pursue perfection.
But we are the prey, fed off on the ground and in the air. Stuart names some of the predators directly, and alludes to others in the allegorical tale of his personal quest to find the Lady of the Lake, and to tell the Devil he loves him. This no cosy read, but, as world events take increasingly bizzare turns, if you have the courage, READ IT.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wild ride by a modern trickster guru 16 Sep 2004
By Lleu Christopher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have noted, this is not an easy book to review. In some ways, God's Gladiators has elements in common with books like Autobiography of a Yogi and the works of Carlos Castaneda (though Wilde is definitely on a different spiritual path from either of these). The problem is, if you haven't personally experienced the fantastic things written about in these books, how do you evaluate their authenticity? If you are a complete skeptic or someone who believes anything on faith, this is not a problem. If however, like me, you are open to almost anything but also skeptical, it can be a tricky business.

In this book, Wilde talks about meeting metaphysical entities such as the mythic Lady of the Lake, malevolent transdimensionals and even the Devil himself (though he confesses that this part of the tale is allegorical). I have read several of Stuart Wilde's books and, although this one is the furthest "out there," all of his work reveals him to be something of a trickster guru type. This, despite the fact that he warns his readers away from gurus and other authority figures. It isn't just what he says, but the way he says it --he is full of wisecracks and a tongue-in-cheek attitude. This does not mean, however, that I don't believe a lot of what he says, only that I don't necessarily take it at face value. For one thing, many of his experiences have the quality of visions or mystical experiences, which often have a subjective quality. That is, what I "see" may be valid for me but not for everyone. The book also contains what I see as certain contradictions. For example, Wilde repeatedly states that anyone who tries to sell you on immortality is conning you. Yet, at the very end he describes, or at least suggests, a way to attain immortality. He tends to paint very broad strokes in dismissing others' beliefs. He mentions that Hitler was interested in Tibetan mysticism, and based on this he rejects everything Tibetan. He likewise condemns Hinduism and Buddhism, the latter for denying the self. Yet Wilde himself tells us we have to get rid of the self we have come to know. This is a common theme of all spiritual traditions, including Buddhism.

I suspect there is a basic truth to Wilde's premise that we are controlled by the Sphere --similar to the Matrix (see David Icke's books for more on this, as well as the Matrix movies of course). Dark entities feed off our fears and negativity and also control all of "our" governments, religions, economies and mass media. The latter will not be news to anyone who has studied conspiracy theories, but Wilde does a good job in exposing this widespread deception. If there is a basic theme to this, as well as Wilde's other books, it is attaining freedom from control.

This is a fascinating book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who is not afraid to go beyond the standard dogmas of most religions as well as self help and new age philosophies. My sense is that it contains a lot of wisdom, some material that is true for some but not others and some hot air as well. It's worth reading it to make up your own mind.

1.0 out of 5 stars What Happened to this Previously Brilliant Author? 21 Jan 2007
By S. Dimmick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this after reading all of his other works - what a disappointment! He contradicts his other works and goes on about fighting the Grays and submitting to some Goddess with firery eyes. This is not compatible with his other teachings and seems full of struggle. All of his previous works focus on creating your own reality and choosing to see what you want to see - where as in this book he seems to have given up to some other power and seems lost. The book left me with an overall feeling of despondency.

It was all a bit sad, he used to be my favorite author. What happened Mr. Wilde?

5.0 out of 5 stars "Stars" don't seem to apply to this book! 3 April 2004
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I should have read the package warning label...for things like
"Don't read this book late into the night" "or don't read after having pepperoni pizza" ...maybe there was no packaging label and that got morphed too!
I am still on the fence here... I have followed SW for sometime and for the most part would call myself a fan. But Stuie...where have you gone here? I find myself in the position of having to sift thru and sort out the details of this book (and now my mind...because as one reviewer aptly said..this book is like a l2 gauge shotgun pointed at your head) How much of this is workable? How much can a serious seeker use...theories and UFO's notwithstanding?
Okay...so why would I give it 5 stars...because it is so compelling...it makes you look at the game your life is again...and who and what you are plugged into...and where you are vs. where you intend to be. Even if you trash a lot of SW's theories as substance induced drama, you can't really walk away from this without it pulling you back into your own life review. I don't think anyone can...and maybe that's the game Stuie really wanted to play after all. The one-two punch that no one saw coming and you may never forget. Wow and WHOA! all at the same time... I still say "stars" don't seem to apply to this book...but it was one heck of a ride!
