Book Review: Essential Ernest Holmes, Editor Jesse Jennings

Share it Please


I feel a special connection to Essential Ernest Holmes because, prompted by the suggestion of a friend, I had a part in shepherding the volume from idea to final product.  I had the pleasure of interviewing prospective editors for the task of putting together in one volume a selection of the key ideas of American spiritual teacher, Ernest Holmes. Jesse Jennings got the job.

Jesse Jennings has done an extraordinary job of collecting and organizing the most important ideas of Holmes's work and laying them out in themes that are easy to read and absorb. Drawing upon This Thing Called You, The Science of Mind textbook, Creative Mind and Success and lacing the book with extracts from the poem The Voice Celestial co-written by Ernest Holmes and his brother Fenwick, Essential Ernest is a must read for anyone who is trying to get an big picture of the teaching known to the world as Science of Mind.

The book is presented in three parts and covers Holmes's central message about the unity of al life, the mystery of our spiritual being and how knowing who and what we are might impact our social awareness and responsibility as citizens of the world.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
