Author Donald Castellano-Hoytabout this book: Almost every person alive has had an encounter with the divine. That is my experience with people in a 40 year social work career. However very few people are comfortable with their experiences, because their experiences tend to contradict the religious views, creeds, or beliefs with which they've been raised. Other people have difficulty with their experiences and think that they "are going crazy."

These tend to be the folk that I talked out of their suicidal postures and off the ledges, etc.

My own mystical experiences since age 2 years have all been matched in my reading over the years of literary accounts by accepted authors, poets, world-reknowned leaders, etc. and in addition my efforts in meditation in my adult life have added validity and reassurance to my emotional life.

In this book I recount many literary examples of divine exposure in which the authors knew what was happening to them. They had no need for the angelic "be not afraid" because their experiences were extensions, for the most part, of an already seeking and inquiring spirit.

I have found that one's theology must follow one's experience rather than interpret it, and also the theology must change to fit the reality. Therefore beyond the mystical accounts I develop a section on "Doctrinal Issues" that I invite members of all major religions to reflect up. I get especial comments about my 'esoteric' understanding of the 'Last Supper.'

Enjoy the book! If you have experiences of your own that you're willing to share in what I anticipate to be a followup volume entitled "Personal Glimpses of Divine Glory," you will find my invitation at the end of the book to submit it to me.
