Book Review: The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield

July 15, 2017

A fateful coincidence introduces the narrator, not named in the book, to an ancient manuscript. His curiousity takes him on an adventure to Peru where he uncovers the manuscript’s wisdom one prophecy at a time with the help of people he meets along the way (through other fateful coincidences).

Suppressed by the government and church, the manuscript is said to have been written thousands of years ago and to hold secrets that would shake the foundation of religion as we know it. The narrator, however, and his friend, one of whom is a priest, seem to disagree. They think that the manuscript brings the essence of religion to light and promotes love and betterment.

The hunt for the prophecies takes the narrator on a journey of self-discovery and opens his eyes to the issues and complexes that create barriers between people and their higher selves. He comes to understand the source of conflict between individuals and how a simple shift in perspective and energy can go a long way in creating better and healthier relationships.

Apart from the interesting story and page-turning events, The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure is loaded with chunks of wisdom and knowledge for those who seek mental, spiritual, and psychological evolution. It’s a school more than it is a story, a cure more than it is a pastime, and, delightfully so, a very engaging read. This goes on my personal list of books to read in a lifetime (at least once).
