Elizabeth Clare Prophet (19392009) was a pioneer of modern spirituality and an internationally renowned speaker and author. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, the author of JESUS: THE MISSING YEARS, seems to be writing this book as a clarion call to the faithful that reincarnation does not go against Christian beliefs, but it actually adds substance to many of Christianity's arguments. Her writing style may be a little downgrading, as she is so passionate about the subject that she gives the impression that she is the only source to be trusted.

Mounting tensions with local residents subsided when the predicted attack did not occur, and church members began returning home. At the same time, a looming face-off with the United States government was averted when church leaders agreed not to store weapons in return for a reinstatement of the church’s tax-exempt status, which had been revoked in 1987. This year she published In My Own Words: Memoirs of a 20th Century Mystic.

It has taken quite a long while for reincarnation to really be accepted in the Christian Community. While there are scattered references to it in Holy Scripture, what is needed is a reexamination on the subject in circles of faith; where representatives from all denominations and faiths can see how the concept works, how it applies to religious beliefs and everyday living, and how it corresponds with the belief of other religions. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, the author of JESUS: THE MISSING YEARS, seems to be writing this book as a clarion call to the faithful that reincarnation does not go against Christian beliefs, but it actually adds substance to many of Christianity's arguments. Her writing style may be a little downgrading, as she is so passionate about the subject that she gives the impression that she is the only source to be trusted. (The book was written in collaboration with her daughters.) Yet, here we have the Cayce perspective, the historical perspective and early church father perspective placed besides many historical anecdotes. (I always find it curious that Christianity, a religion that preaches love to all men, should have a history of bloodshed and misunderstanding.) Those who believe in reincarnation will find Prophet's book a true revelation, while other people may find it hard-going. Sadly, the book really needs to be read by the faithful; who probably will never read a word of it because it is "from Satan." Yet, for those who have an open mind and have studied the scriptures in many translations, the book can indeed be seen as a prophecy of the way Christianity may develop in the future.

This book is definitely one of the best books on reincarnation, or on any other spiritual subject, that I have ever read. It's accessible and easy to read, and has a wealth of information and data for both the lay person and the specialist. The authors follow up all the implications and ramifications that acceptance of the doctrine of reincarnation would have on Christianity, and really flesh things out to paint a vivid picture of how Christianity would be totally different if reincarnation were part of the picture. And in the process, they cover implications and ramifications that the average Christian who believes in reincarnation hasn't even thought of, but needs to be aware of, or appreciate more deeply. This book also opens the door to many interesting avenues of study for those interested in esoteric Christianity and Christian origins. For example, it seems as if I have found a kindred spirit in Philo of Alexandria, a Hellenistic Jew who made a synthesis of Judaism and Greek philosophy - I suppose I'll have to get a copy of his works. The only possible drawback that this book may have for the average reader, in my opinion, is the pushing of their own brand of Ascension theology towards the end, but that's only a minor flaw that is easily forgiven.

Really enjoyed this one! Ms. Prophet really seems to have done her homework before writing it - the bibliography and notes are quite lengthy and varied.

The book starts off a little oddly, but soon shifts over to something more cohesive and even almost scholarly (but not stuffy). I found it to be actually quite a page turner. Some very interesting points are made throughout the book to support Ms. Prophet's thesis that reincarnation was probably a belief held by many early Christians, and Jesus may have even preached on this subject, if only indirectly.

I did think that some of Ms. Prophet's logic was a bit weak in spots - especially early on in the book - but she did tie things up pretty well as the book progressed. The ending was perhaps a little less than satisfying, but still appropriate.

Even if you don't believe in reincarnation and don't think you ever could, the book makes for interesting reading. I highly recommend it.

The book reenforced many beliefs I already had, but could not find information on. One thing I took with a grain of salt was that it seemed to me that the author stated many of her beliefs as fact. Though those beliefs are base on information she found, it is still unprovable data.

This is EXCELLENT! And 'right on!'. Jesus, raised in the ESSENE Judaic tradition, was a believer in 'reincarnation', but the Roman Emperors, Caliphates, Kings and Queens, just wanted everyone to believe in 'Heaven or Hell' and therefore follow their ORDERS! And that's how they corrupted Christianity over the years. As Jesus said, himself: "The way of the world is corrupt', and that includes the evolution of Christianity under the imperious desires of rulers. Truly worth a read.

I bought this copy for a friend. I've read mine twice. I find many of the parallels between now and then in terms of dogma fascinating, whether it's religious, political, or social. Good read.
