I was first introduced to this book in 1978. As it turns out, it is still one of the very few books I recommend regularly. This classic work by Richard Bach does not address the ‘psychic world’ or psychic development but the tone of the book is so important in building a philosophy of life. Bach blurs the line between fiction and real-life as the story is told in the first person as an actual experience.
What if a ‘holy man’ appeared in our world today? How would his words be received? What would his message actually be? This is the premise of Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah. The book is an easy, quick read but the themes of the book will stick with you, maybe forever.
