Paperback 136pg | July 2013
Subject: Body Mind Spirit / New Thought
The roots of New Thought can be traced back to the early 1800’s, and like any spiritual movement, the interpretation and application of basic principles tend to evolve with society in a changing world. From our vantage point in the 21st century, we can see that despite the diverse path New Thought has taken, its core beliefs continue to be a source of comfort for individuals seeking spiritual strength and encouragement.
What are these basic principles and why do they provide a long-lasting spiritual foundation? In THE PRINCIPLES OF NEW THOUGHT, author April Moncrieff has answered this question and clarified the unique aspects of New Thought by explaining the Biblical and individual influences that sparked this spiritual way of life. Not stopping there, this intriguing book will make one realize that the philosophy actually dovetails more closely with Biblical teachings than many of today’s traditional Christian groups.
Ernest Holmes was quoted as saying, “The Principles governing the New Thought movement are universal but individually and independently applied.” In other words, even though the one True Source behind New Thought has forever been available, the spiritual laws are useless without the acknowledgement and action of each and every soul. Here’s a new book that takes New Thought followers to the original roots of this world-wide movement, so they can understand and build a stronger spiritual life of their own.
