“’The Many Lights of Eden’ is a journey: a journey
of the heart through youth, anguish, struggle,
spiritual awakening, grief, death, love, loss,
guilt, struggle, despair, hope, surrender, God,
sensuality, imperfection, motherhood, aging,
the vanquishing of the devil, indeed, many devils,
the inevitable fall from perfection and the casting
off of old wineskins for a new one. Perhaps
speaking of this book as a chronicle of spiritual
maturing would be more accurate, the realization
that there is spirituality within imperfection and that handmade temples
cannot hope to compete with the spiritual temples within each of us.
‘The Many Lights of Eden’ is a diamond. It is a beautiful collection
of insights. Allison Grayhurst’s thoughts and writings are a deep well.
Drink from it, for the water is clear and crisp. This collection is
a MUST-READ,” Eric M. Vogt, author of Letters to Lara and
Paths and Pools to Ponder.
