The Miracle Club

I won’t lie. I’ve read Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. The title of The Miracle Club is different. You have the green background that makes you think of money. The eye in the middle has so many possible connotations I don’t know if I want to get into it, but if you research the same eye that’s on your dollar bill you’ll get where I’m going with it. As soon as I saw the eye on this book cover, one word came to mind, but I digress.

This short book is about the New Thought movement, it’s history, its founders, their view of spirituality and what it looks like. The author also, talks about the subject of positive thinking and how throughout the decades it’s gotten a bad reputation. The author, Mitch Horowitz gives examples from his own life in how he’s incorporated New Thought into his life. Mr. Horowitz writes candidly about this topic that he’s passionate about. How can our thoughts direct our destiny? How can changing our thoughts change our course in life?

I received my free digital ARC of The Miracle Club by Mitch Horowitz from NetGalley care of Inner Traditions Bear and Co. The thoughts in this review and feedback are strictly my own. This book was short, but a lot to digest intellectually. If you have read other books on this subject matter you may find this book easier to understand. I don’t personally agree with all the views in this book, but I do think it’s important to understand other viewpoints that may differ from your own. I think it’s fascinating that the author did sprinkle in Bible verses, but looked at them from a metaphysical standpoint. New Age and the New Thought, metaphysics, are very popular, so I figured I might as well educate myself.
