Smashwords book reviews by Jo Steinman

  • Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism on Jan. 19, 2012

    I spent a lot of time looking for someone to take over the work initiated by Emmet Fox. The potential of this Dictionary is to rewrite our understanding of the whole of scriptures. It applies with equal force to the Old and the New Testaments. Now, in just three days, I completed the first three chapters of Genesis. My initial ventures into other chapters are just as eye-opening. Quite incredible! And the equally surprising thing is that the more I do it, the more I seem to understand what the ancients were talking about. If ever a book deserved 5 Stars, this is it! A most amazing discovery!
  • Yeshua - Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus on Jan. 20, 2012

    Not being a Christian, I found this book particularly interesting to read. While treating the matter with utmost respect, the author presented a persuasive argument why Yeshûa the man, became the most honored person in the history of the world. The very last line in the book opens the possibility that he may have become even more than that. Fascinating.
  • DELUSIONS — Pragmatic Realism on March 12, 2012

    Having read God Delusion, I’m so glad that Stanislaw Kapuscinski took it upon himself to extend the ‘Delusions’ to the field of science. Pragmatic Realism seems well suited to the task of balancing the odds. The book shows, clearly, the folly of one-sided view of reality. It also evident that those who criticize the most, have most to learn. As I said before, please keep them coming, Mr. Kapuscinski!
  • Key To Immortality — Commentary on Gospel of Thomas on March 17, 2012

    Stanislaw Kapuscinski has an uncanny ability to bring the esoteric out into the open. A truly enlightening read. I recommend it to anyone harboring doubts about their inherent immortality. As I read through the 114 sayings attributed to Jesus, I was impressed by the amazing consistency of Kapuscinski’s exposé. It seems incredible that no one has ever attempted to do it in the past. Reading other works by Kapuscinski I see a thread of philosophy that seems to have little to do with religion, but everything with the unfoldment of the mysteries of how the reality in which we have our becoming works. If you are a searcher for truth, read this and other books by this author.
  • Wall — Love, Sex and Immortality [Aquarius Trilogy Book One] on March 23, 2012

    Greek sunshine, warm seas, mystery, suspense, a beautiful woman, a handsome man – what more can one expect? Well… there is also espionage, science, physics, travel, ancient myths, moving through walls, flying – without wings, love – lots of love. Ah, yes, and don’t forget sex and immortality. Not a bad way to finish. You might say, it’s a vintage Stan Law.
  • One Just Man [Winston Trilogy Book I] on June 28, 2012

    Having read One Just Man in four days, I couldn’t wait to buy Elohim - Masters and Minions, and, just to make sure I wouldn’t miss it, I bought straightaway Winston’s Kingdom. Now I have the complete Trilogy and loving it! Seriously, I really do love them. First the One Just Man, and now I’m halfway through the Elohim, which takes Peter Thornton into the field of genetics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology. But to appreciate him, you must read One Just Man first. It creates a unique man that can than take you along into realms you’ve never imagined. I simply can’t imagine what Law will do in Winston’s Kingdom!
  • Now - Being and Becoming on Oct. 09, 2012

    Yet another brilliant winner. A man in coma who owns the world. Fantastic! I’m a great fan of Stan Law’s novels, and I am always looking forward to his new works. What a delightful change from explicit sex, murder and mayhem, not to mention the gratuitous killing and gore with which our TV screens are filled to the brim. Isn’t it time someone had the courage to make a movie from one of Stan Law’s books? I realized it would make people think, but is thinking really such a dirty word these days? Nevertheless, until they do, I strongly recommend that you let Stan Law take you on a trip you’ll not easily forget. In his book, even the seemingly dead come alive. (PS, I read my friend's copy before buying my own!)

  • Peter and Paul on Nov. 24, 2012

    Since I read Law’s Yeshûa, I wondered how would it be possible to spread the teaching such as was implied in that novel. The complexities of the international relations of that day, must have multiplied the difficulties, which the protagonists had to face. And yet, Stan Law, with his usual expertise created a reality in which Peter, Paul, and finally Nero, had to face the challenges to establish their particular vision of reality. It is a masterly novel of psychological diversity.
  • Alexander [Alexander Trilogy Book Two] on Dec. 06, 2012

    It is one thing to fight one’s physical demons, quite another when one suspects that they reside in the depth of one’s own psyche. Alexander, the mysterious amalgam of Alec and Sandra, had to cope with both. His youth had given him a foretaste of things to come, and now, in adulthood, he had to reconcile the evidence of his senses with his boyish fantasies, which he begun to suspect were more real than he ever imagined. This is a fantastic story in which most of the action takes place within one man’s consciousness. You must decide who and when will emerge victorious.
  • Alec [Alexander Trilogy Book One] on Oct. 08, 2013

    I read the proof copy. This is a strange duet between young Alec’s imaginary ventures into the paranormal worlds and his parent’s real, down-to-earth attempts to match his experiences in “real life”. I found myself musing of Alec’s wonder-worlds and feeling the Caribbean breeze on my cheeks at the helm of a 42 foot yacht, at the same time. Only Stan Law can interpolate such diversity into a single story and make it not only believable but also thoroughly enjoyable. The young will follow Alec’s ventures, the adults the dreams of Alec Sr., his father, and Alicia, is mother. When taken together, the reader will double with laughter at the succinct, slightly sardonic, exclusively Law’s sense of humor. I can thoroughly recommend this novel to all ages. We can only imagine where the road Alec took will lead in Alexander and later in Sacha.
  • Visualization - Creating Your Own Universe on Nov. 12, 2013

    It seems that there are many ways to affect the world we live in. We can do it at physical, mental or emotional level. Yet here the author shows us that a change in consciousness may have even more powerful effects. If we visualize our destiny, the vision itself might well take us to its fulfillment. He is very convincing in stating his conclusions. He also suggests that the great masters of yesterday, in all fields of sciences, arts or even politics, applied this method — with considerable success. Perhaps it is time that we should all follow in their footsteps.
  • Pluto Effect [Aquarius Trilogy Book Two] on Dec. 12, 2013

    Most writers have a theme, like murder, or suspense, or erotica, or some other nonsense. Not Stan Law. Each time I download one of his books I am amazed that he tackles reality from a new, completely fresh point of view, even if it reaches back to Greek mythology. In addition, he explains the Zodiac in a way that I’ve never heard it explained before. A most amazing writer. The WALL, now Pluto Effect. I can but wonder how this Trilogy will conclude. But I am sure I’ll be as surprised as I am so far…
