I just received my first independent and professional review of my latest book, Christouch – A Christ-centered approach to energy medicine through hands-on healing. The book was reviewed by Patrick Killough (http://www.patrickkillough.com). Patrick’s website bio has this to say about him:
THOMAS PATRICK KILLOUGH (“Patrick” or “Pat”) is a writer, lecturer, consultant and teacher. His interests include citizen inputs into foreign policy, education, religion in public life and the history of the League of Nations and the United Nations.
I am grateful for Patrick thorough and comprehensive review of the Christouch book. Here is just a sample of what he has to say:
“As a pioneering effort to Christianize Eastern Reiki and related hand healing alternative healing techniques, Lauri Ann Lumby’s CHRISTOUCH treads a path gone along before her by Saint Augustine when he integrated the Gospel with the thinking of pagans Aristotle, Plato and Plotinus or when Saint Thomas Aquinas unearthed and baptized the core of Aristotle in the writings of Muslim Avicenna and Averroes. Whatever its flaws (if any) in terms of Roman Catholic orthodoxy, CHRISTOUCH is a bold original attempt at cross-cultural, religions-spanning framing of Reiki and her energy healing sisters — which boast plenty of anecdotal evidence that they work. If it is any consolation to the author, even Saint Thomas Aquinas, if memory serves, was once excommunicated by an Archbishop of Paris.”
I invite you to read the review in its entirety through this link, http://www.patrickkillough.com/books/lumby_christouch.html and then feel free to share it with others!
Thank you Patrick and readers!
