About the Author
Emmet Fox (1886-1951) was one of the most influential spiritual leaders of the twentieth century and a pioneer of the New Thought movement. His bold, dynamic message proclaiming that our thoughts shape our reality has changed the lives of millions across the world and influenced many key contemporary spiritual writers such as Wayne Dyer, Esther Hicks, and Louise Hay, all of whom have tapped into the power of positive thinking. Fox's other key works include Power Through Constructive Thinking and Alter Your Life.

Like the other great 20th century metaphysicians such as Florence Scovel-Shinn, Joseph Murphy and Ernest Holmes, Fox had a remarkable gift for conveying ancient spiritual truth in language that everyone can understand. He covers issues like faith, scientific prayer, cosmic law, life after death, reincarnation and the practice of the presence of God in a most absorbing and engaging manner, identifying hidden meanings of biblical passages in the light of psychology.
My favorite chapters include (a) The Yoga Of Love, in which Fox confirms that there are many roads to the great goal but that the pathway of love is the shortest and the easiest (b) The Wonder Child, about the indwelling presence of God, and (c) The Lord's Prayer. Identifying the formula of this Jewish prayer, Fox shows why it is a perfect pattern for the development of the soul. In the 4th place, I found the meditation on Psalm 23, (d) The Good Shepherd, of great value.
Some chapters are introduced by quotes from the Bible and poems by amongst others Bulwer Lytton, George Meredith and Wordsworth. The book as a whole is deeply spiritual and highly inspiring while practical at the same time. Ideally it needs to be studied, not just read once, and will certainly contribute to making the reader's life more rewarding and fulfilling. Fox understood the wellsprings of life and how the individual might achieve a richer and happier life by choosing the right thoughts.
There are many other classics by the 19th & 20th century metaphysicians that intelligently explains the power of thought from various perspectives. This author's The Sermon on the Mount is highly recommended, as well as In Tune with the Infinite by Ralph Waldo Trine and The Hidden Power of the Bible by Ernest Holmes.
So I thought I would post my own review just to balance things up a little.
I read through this book and though most of the chapters were ok.
However when it got to the Life after Death chapter it was quite frankly bizarre.
The Re-incarnation chapter was not a lot better.
After these two chapters I struggled through the rest of the book.
I would have given it 3 stars if it were not for those two chapters but feel it only deserves 2.
The book just makes sense, I suspect this is because it speaks the Truth, and the truth is fundamentally right and good. If one speaks of universal laws about the nature of exitence on this earth, and about humanity, then they are bound to resonate. And they have certainly resonated in me.
If you are seeking a deeper understanding in God, a higher power, the power of the iniverse, love, (whathever you choose to call it), then I believe this book will help to deepen your understanding of what spirituality is as well as providing practical tips on how to 'demonstrate' the prescence of God in your daily actions, and lead a spiritual life.
The only regret I have is that I didn't buy the hardback version, as to assimilate the wonderful spiritual wisdom contained in this book will take many, many readings. I just can't recommend it enough.
