SEED OF THE NEW AGE by Sue Sikking


Email this review


This is an inspirational book of the home garden (or make-yourself-a-more-mature-human-person) variety. As such, it touches on the expected topics; e.g., the importance of a personal God, how to get the most out of one's relationship with God, how to achieve a balanced view of life and death. It also deals with a few that are more esoteric, such as the significance of dreams and what the author calls ""inner disturbances"" -- ""viruses, flu, nervous exhaustion, hypertension."" The book as a whole reads like a collection of ill-prepared sermons based on random readings from the Reader's Digest. The sequence of thoughts is illogical; the author's observations, sophomoric; the style, primitive; the language, ambiguous in its syntactical barbarism. The book, in fact, is so poorly conceived and so clumsily executed that one also loses sight of the fact that there is a ready market--and a large one--for works of this kind.
