This book fills in the gaps in my own knowing. Prayer was always just meaningless word to me before. Now I feel inspired in the knowledge that not only can anyone pray but that everyones prayers count and are in fact vital to peace and our future. Though the book is rooted in the very ancient beliefs of the Essenes it is as relevant today as it has ever been.
Gregg Braden manages to make a difficult concept understandable by his systematic approach. The detailed and understandable way this book is written is a joy to read and reread. I have lent it out to friends and they have all been moved by the content.

Greg Braden is a former earth science expert as well as a computer systems designer turned tour guide of sacred and religious sites all over the world. He has written a number of books on similar subjects.
The Isaiah effect examines many tenants and religious beliefs throughout man kind's history. Looking at who wrote the Bible, why books were left out and what it meant to the overall understanding of the Bible that the books were not included in the final project. He looks at the Bible with all the books and also looks at Native American, Mayan and Aztec beliefs among many others (to be listed later). How are they similar? The writer will show you.
Greg Braden believes we are missing something today. He explains how mass prayer has been proven to work. He discusses quantum physics theories that make many of the ancient prophecies seem plausible. The book spends a good bit of time discussing "The Bible Code" and the possibilities that it teaches us. The writer also has chapters discussing healing through prayer among many other faith based actions.
This book tries to make you think. Common prophecies, common threads in religion, did we all come from one belief? The book also presents a new way to look at time, time travel, dimensions, religions and quantum physics, prayer and prophecy, alternate realities, multiple paralleled universes. Can we bounce back and forth between them? Maybe even without knowing? Are we actually just now starting to learn or relearn what the ancient people knew? If so, why? How do the prophecies from Peru, Tibet, Egypt, Jerusalem and the American Southwest coincide?
Many questions are explored in the book. Some answers are given which in turn just raise a few more questions. This is a book that makes you think about many things including how we, as a race, relate to the seen and unseen worlds. If you are in a contemplating mood this is the book for you. If you are interested in the history and contents of religions this has some interest. If you feel something is missing in today's religions, read this book. It will make you think.

With much written on prophecy and especially on the year 2012 which is coming up soon I was drawn to this book as it uses the past knowledge of our ancestors to draw some conclusions. I especially like that it lets you decide for yourself as to what the prophecy can mean to us now and that we as humankind have a choice about our future and how it plays out. Do we change willingly or do we need a catastrophe to make us realise. I hope it is the former. It will take a big change from the way we live now but as I look about me I feel that change is starting to happen with more people aware of global warming, recycling our resources, and etc. This is a good book to start exploring our choices for the benefit of ourselves and our beautiful planet by looking back at the intellectual writings of our ancestors. Greg Braden writes on this subject with a style that is easy to read and understand and certainly gets you thinking.

The Isaiah effect (as in Bradens other books) examines the spiritual beliefs of our some of our ancient ancestors as well as some of the messages in the bible to enable us to see the similarity of these ancient messages which will empower us to create peace in our lives and our world. Having studied the Nag Hamadi Library Braden examines the relevance of these once missing texts(gospels that were omitted from the bible)to the formation of Christian religion and the history of the Catholic church.Lots of interesting information and insights in this book, however, much of it is already covered in his other works. Although an interesting read Braden has a tendency to constantly summarise and repeat himself which made me want to skim through much of it.

Gregg Braden has re-ignited my interest in the stories and prophets of the bible. It seems that nothing is as it seems! That the act of prayer is real, that we each have a divine cord to our creator which we can use to pray for outcomes which we desire! And that those prayers are always answered!
Braden gives this age old maxim a modern feel which borders on scientific. This appealed to me as I had lost my connection to God and had not prayed or consciously communicated with the divine in years. Something strange going on here folks! Yes, we are not alone!

Haven't read it all yet but It is extremely interesting so far and expecting it to continue. I love a book that makes me think and this one is deep so I don't want to rush reading it so that everything sinks in. It was recommended to me and I am glad that I went ahead and bought it.

Another Braden Classic. Makes one look at spirtuality with new wide open perspective. Brought one personally closer to a greater understanding of the power of Prayer and Prophesy.

Awesome Mr Braden

Easy and enlightening read....especially if you are a follower of the Secret.
Worth reading for the forgotten insight to our ancient ways and the form in which they still exist today.
