Book cover

Modern Saints and Seers by Jean Finot is a captivating exploration of the lives and experiences of several remarkable individuals who have achieved spiritual greatness in our modern era. The author, known for his insightful and thought-provoking work in the realm of spirituality, presents a collection of biographies that shed light on the unique journeys of these saints and seers.

One of the book's strengths lies in its extensive research and meticulous attention to detail. Finot delves deep into the lives of these extraordinary individuals, unearthing lesser-known facts and anecdotes that provide valuable insights into their character and teachings. Through his engaging narrative, the author succeeds in creating a vivid and compelling portrait of each saint or seer, allowing readers to develop a profound understanding and empathy towards their experiences.

Another notable aspect of Modern Saints and Seers is its diverse selection of personalities.

Furthermore, Finot expertly navigates the realm of mysticism, providing readers with a glimpse into the mystical experiences and visions these individuals encountered on their spiritual journeys. The author's lucid and evocative descriptions allow readers to vicariously immerse themselves in these mystical encounters, creating an atmosphere of awe and wonder.

However, it is worth noting that the book occasionally feels disjointed, as Finot jumps from one saint or seer to another without clear transitions or connections. This can make it a bit challenging for readers to fully grasp the overall narrative flow. Additionally, some readers may find the level of detail provided overwhelming, as the book occasionally delves into intricate theological concepts and debates.

Despite these minor drawbacks, Modern Saints and Seers remains a valuable and enriching read for anyone interested in spirituality and the pursuit of higher truths. Finot's dedication to researching and documenting the lives of these extraordinary individuals shines through in every chapter, leaving readers with a renewed appreciation for the power of faith and the vast potential of the human spirit.

In conclusion, Modern Saints and Seers offers a compelling glimpse into the lives of remarkable individuals who have achieved spiritual greatness in our modern era. Finot's insightful writing style and extensive research make this book a valuable contribution to the study of spirituality. Although the occasional lack of clarity in transitions and intricate theological discussions may be challenging for some readers, the overall impact is undeniably uplifting and thought-provoking.

Occultism is triumphant. In its many different forms it now emerges from obscurity and neglect. Its promises excite our deepest thoughts and wishes. Eagerly we examine the strength of the bridge that it has built between this world and the next; and though we may see our hopes slip down between the crevices, though we may find those who have been disappointed in a more despairing state than before what matter?
