My review of Seven Days with Adam by Jay Speights


 7 Days With Adam is a brilliantly crafted work about Adam, the
first man, who visits the author and shatters many of his core beliefs
about God, creation, the basic nature of humans and this world. He has
astonishing revelations about his and Eve's real legacy. After the 7 day
visit, he leaves the author enlightened with actual exercises, prayers and
meditative techniques that we can all use to access our Divine Inner Power
and achieve mastery in our lives. This book is a testament to the value of
storytelling in spirituality, and to disciplined spiritual practice, as
well as being attuned to the Higher Self and Divine Inner Light that is in
all of us.

My Review: 

"7 Days With Adam" is unique in so many ways. Jay delivers spiritual ideas, suggestions, and techniques that you can use in your own life and spiritual journey. I have tried some of the suggestions and I am so very glad I found Jay and his insight. A must read for all.

Jay Speights is an award winning author, chaplain, spiritual coach, and Director of The New Seminary, the oldest Interfaith Seminary in the world.  His multi-faith approach has lead him to continuously search for common universal truths about God, creation, and existence. Jay believes we must always strive to be attuned to our Higher Self, which is reflected in his discipline of prayer, meditation, daily spiritual practice and writing.

For many years he was a contributor to The Washington Times Online Edition and, where he provided social, spiritual, and political commentary focused on getting people to interact and relate on a higher level. A November 2009 Post from his Washington Times Blog , motivated the City Council of Washington, DC, to pass a resolution declaring March 20, 2010, "Polite Day". The resolution was the result of his post asking the DC Government to appeal to DC residents, political leaders and commuters to be more polite and civil as they move about their neighborhoods and business in the city. In November 2007 he received the Humanitarian Award from The Punjabi Literary Society for Distinguished Commentary at Lincoln Center in New York for his commentary about the how Sikhs are subjected to harsh treatment because of their faith and cultural tradition
