To celebrate the centennial of his birth, DeVorss will be releasing a single-volume edition of eight books by prominent New Thought writer Neville Goddard (1905-1972). This beautiful new edition includes: The Law and the Promise, Prayer, The Art of Believing, Seedtime and Harvest, Feeling is the Secret, Resurrection, Freedom for All, Out of This World.
Neville Goddard was among the last century’s most articulate and charismatic purveyors of the philosophy generally called New Thought. For all the recent talk of America being a faith-based nation, it was this iconoclastic foreigner from Barbados, West Indies who lived out the promise of religious freedom in a manner, perhaps, that a Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Paine would have smiled upon. It is in Neville that one finds a truly American spiritual figure: an innovator, a nonconformist, someone who dared to live by the inner light of his ideas.
ROY EUGENE DAVIS: “Neville Goddard was one of the quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years…In a simple, yet somehow elegant one-hour lecture, Neville was able to clarify the nature of God and God’s relationship to every person. He spoke of God in intimate terms as though he knew god very well, which he did.”
SCIENCE OF MIND MAGAZINE: “The words of spiritual teacher Neville Goddard retain their power to electrify . . . he captured the sheer logic of creative-mind principles as perhaps no other figure of his era.”
Neville Born in Barbados, West Indies, Neville came to the United States to study drama at the age of seventeen. In 1932 he gave up the theater to devote his attention to his studies in mysticism when he began his lecture career in New York City. After traveling throughout the country, he eventually made his home in Los Angeles where, in the late 1950’s, he gave a series of talks on television, and for many years, lectured regularly to capacity audiences at the Wilshire Ebell Theater. Although Neville’s career peaked in the late 1950’s and early 60’s, his message continues to find a place in the hearts of spiritual readers throughout the world today. Neville Goddard was one of the more quietly dramatic and supremely influential teachers in the New Thought field for many years.
