Rev. James Speights' new book, 7 Days With Adam has just been published. Many will recognize author, Rev. Speights, as the Director of The New Seminary; however, he is also a chaplain and spiritual coach. No stranger to the printed word, Rev. Speights has been a contributor to The Washington Times Online Edition and religionandspirituality.com, "where he provided social, spiritual, and political commentary focused on getting people to interact and relate on a higher level."
What I enjoyed about this spiritual odyssey was the give and take between author and Adam. The conversation flows naturally and provides the reader with insight into the difficult questions people have in connection to the traditions of yesterday and our visions for tomorrow. I found myself pulled into the story and could easily apply Adam's suggestions to my own life.
I agree that 7 Days With Adam is a "brilliantly crafted work about Adam, the first man, who visits the author and shatters many of his core beliefs about God, creation, the basic nature of humans and this world. He has astonishing revelations about his and Eve's real legacy. After the 7 day visit, he leaves the author enlightened with actual exercises, prayers and meditative techniques that we can all use to access our Divine Inner Power and achieve mastery in our lives. This book is a testament to the value of storytelling in spirituality, and to disciplined spiritual practice, as well as being attuned to the Higher Self and Divine Inner Light that is in all of us."
