1.0 out of 5 stars Left me cold, 26 April 2008
This review is from: Benedictus: A Book Of Blessings (Hardcover)
I was surprised to be bought this book by a member of my close family. They thought it a book for people who have faith in supernatural explanations and for those who do not. I am the latter and an atheist.

Religious believers may glean more useful "blessings" from the texts and prayers of their chosen faith.

Setting beliefs aside, I find the book sentimental, and the language and style of the majority of the blessings on a par with the contents of the average greetings card.

perhaps you should read some more greetings cards, John's writing is deep and spiritual, it has great meaning, (unlike many cheap greetings cards,) however I would agree it was not a suitable book for people who have not reached any spiritual awareness. If you have no interest in spiritual awareness and meaning, then none of John's books will be of interest. Keep to what does interest you!
