May Open Spiritual Portals Within You
Author and Vietnam veteran Gerald A. Van Slyke, has written a soul inspiring memoir with his début book "Angels Never Lie." The writing style takes the reader on a gentle spiritual journey as the author explores his personal awakening. He shares his encounters with the presence of angels in his life and much more. The book is not preachy, nor is it out to sell us any new kind of dogma; its only message seems to be the belief in angels and the power of love in our lives. It is a message that is embraced throughout the book.
Van Slyke also adds several personal stories of angel encounters that were shared with him in his angel store in Arizona. It is a nice mixture of his spiritual adventures and others. He talks about angels in the modern day age and shows us that he is not alone in his beliefs.
The book comes across as an honest and almost understated story of how the author changed and evolved emotionally and spiritually. Events and people come into his life at the right time (God's time?) and it changes his life. He recounts some of his experiences where his dreams gave him a knowing that things were going to happen.
The author does a wonderful job of making this book very readable and enjoyable and at the same time making it inspirational. You cannot come away from reading his book without having some questions about life, about God or even about what is real or not. You will be changed; perhaps, you may even question your perceptions about your own religious beliefs. It is that kind of life story; and words like powerful and awe inspiring come to mind!
This is a "good-feeling-story" to read that is uplifting! You may even feel an urgent need to write the author, or go visit his angel store to discuss what you just read. I know I came away wanting more of the stories and wanting to talk to author.
If you are looking for a gift for a friend, family member, or a loved one, or someone who may be ill or dying - then this book is that perfect offering for their soul's hunger. I personally recommend this book to all readers. The American Authors Association gives this book its highest rating of FIVE STARS and also nominates it for one of its prestigious annual book awards.
