Genre: Non-Fiction; Biography with a short story at the end


THE PURPLE LIGHT: A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR HERB AND LIFE ENTHUSIASTS Weed is moving to main street. It’s happening now and is the next big bubble on Wall Street. Can a medicinal marijuana smoker be a believer also? Recovering hard drug addicts and veterans with PTSD swear by marijuana. The bible says to use HERBS and leaves as medicine and that pharmaceuticals are sorcery. Is legal marijuana helpful to some people? The world says you can’t have THAT and be a BELIEVER! We, the recovering addicts, the veterans and the mentally challenged say enough! We can have it all and be believers. It’s time to end antiquated, unfair thinking and wake up to a new enlightenment. People often wonder how I get faith from that. This book champions that effort!

About the Author:

I met the Purple Light, the glory, over twenty years ago, one night in the form of a purple, electric light cross. My life changed instantly. I was taken up into the air and given a new soul and body and began "seeing and hearing". I wasn't ready for the second coming I had experienced. Twenty years later, I am still hearing and writing about the glory that has helped me so much. I am still a work in progress but I don't regret becoming a Christian one bit. If I never make a dollar, I'm content that I glorified Christ.

My Take on the Book:

A lot of this book left me scratching my head – since a lot of what he describes religion-wise I didn’t quite identify with or make sense of, and I would be one of the more open-minded in regards to religion. I go to a non-denominational church – and have heard and or seen a lot since I’ve (re)started my own spiritual journey.

One thing I’m glad about is that he mentioned what sub-religion he follows – it allowed me to do a little bit of research, though I haven’t read anything about the sort of things he’s experienced – and will make allowances that everyone experiences their own spiritual journey in different ways. I ended up giving this book a 2.5 star rating – the story at the end making up for most of the book that I found a little bit confusing.

Last Word:

This author could have potential in fiction writing – and I really hope he decides to pursue this path.
