  • This is a worthwhile book to own. I left my original copy on the plane and didn't think I'd be able to replace it and then here it was on Amazon. I hope to finish it on my next flight and trip. It did get me hooked as the antagonist finds more and more people and clues to the Messiah Stones.

  • This is a excellent read this is my second time reading it so glad i found it again...

  • I had to buy this book for my book club selection. Usually I can find something I like about a book, but not this time. There were no interesting or likeable characters, plot was far fetched and pointless. Seems that the author was getting nervous about the approaching "Y2K" and dwells on the end of the world. We're still here.

  • THE BENG IN BENIG: Soul Journeys: I stumbled into this book by the usual serendipity at our local library. There always 'seems' to be a reason and surely, there WAS, as there are ideas in this book that are deep and about the spiritual wellspring of all religions as well as that inchoate, age-old longing for Messianic "deliverance". The book reminds me in some ways of The Celestine Prophesy, because it is a kind of serendipitous blend of circumstance that seems fated that leads the characters forward into an adventure of soul. I like the candid feelings of those going through the adventure because they are honest about how it must feel to be "led" in such a visible way, and I think there is a truth to this that surely the prophets --- and others have experienced in looking down the years at their own stories and how the threads seem to magically pull together. It's a blend that contains both the fearful being about awe and the mystery. There were aspects of this book that taught me some answers to mysteries from my own life, and there were some powerful echoes I could relate to... and so for me, this was definitely a good and meaningful read. It goes only so far, and in a way has a lot of gaps and leaves, as story, many "openings" to speculation as to what is going on and seems, in a way also to end without answers and perhaps, too easily and in too pat a manner. But it's a good effort and has a lot in it that is based on very true and deep writings that have to do with the subject matter. it's an easy read and does have a mesmerizing quality. I read it quickly and with interest.

  • I have read a great deal of Bible fiction, so I feel that I am qualified to write a review of this book. It is amazing that any publisher ever gave this poorly written book with a rambling plot line and dull, unimaginative dialogue a second look. So, in a nutshell...the Creator (never "God") gave to Moses, in addition to the well-known tablets, a second set of glow-in-the-dark Messiah Stones which predict the return of the Messiah (never called "Jesus") in the year 2000. (Forget what you read in the Bible about "no one knows the hour or the day.") Written on the stones along with the Hebrew, Latin and Greek prophecy, is the main character's name "McGowan!" It is never explained why his name is so significant. Through a tedious search, McGowan finds a couple Angels, learns about "perfect souls," people put here throughout history by the Creator to keep mankind from going too far astray, and he comes to the realization that all religions are basically the same, all lead to the Creator and that ultimately, when Messiah returns, we can all stop being reincarnated (including Messiah himself, who has lived among us all these years in different bodies) and go back to the Garden of Eden to live. This is a hodge-podge of Eastern religion, Christianity, Mormonism, Mysticism and boring self-examination. What little plot there is runs out long before the end of the book, and the author seems to have given up trying to make it interesting; he just (mercifully) ends it. At least I bought this at Half-Price Books! DON'T waste your time, 'nuf said?

  • I can only say that I am glad I borrowed the book from the library and didn't waste money on it. A title and subject with promise, but that's where it ends. The characters are interchangeable, the dialog dull and flat. Everything is the story falls into place without a shred of suspense--and you really have to suspend your imagination. How many college professors can just get up and leave their class whenever they want? Their children are conveniently packed up when necessary. And those dream recollections...great for an insomniac to read because they will put you into a deep sleep. The ending gives you no clue as to what the sacred stones are really about...I think the author was probably so bored himself that he just put in a period and said that's the end. I gave this book one star only because Amazon does not permit you to rate in the negatives
