    This is an exciting book on many levels. Not only the story of the author's life, but it lends a better understanding of how we can all see and be a part of the spiritual world in a different way. Joining traditional church teachings with experiences of spirituality and intuition, I find there is an enhanced experience of faith. The soul work exercises and lessons are easy to follow and bring a new dimension not found in books of this type. Highly recommended to anyone wishing to enhance their fa This is an exciting book on many levels.

    Beyond the Pews is part autobiography, part spiritual guidebook. The author--a minister's daughter--shares her experience of growing up in what she calls "American Spiritual Royalty." comprised of preachers and their kids. Backman was not a typical preacher's kid, however. As a child she saw "angels lingering in every space" and "colors encircling people." She was not always sure what to make of these otherworldly communications and at times she wished the messages would just disappear. Eventual Beyond the Pews is part autobiography, part spiritual guidebook. The author--a minister's daughter--shares her experience of growing up in what she calls "American Spiritual Royalty." comprised of preachers and their kids. Backman was not a typical preacher's kid, however. As a child she saw "angels lingering in every space" and "colors encircling people." She was not always sure what to make of these otherworldly communications and at times she wished the messages would just disappear. Eventually, she began to process the information that was being conveyed. Backman puts forth that we all have the ability to tap into this unseen form of communication, which she describes as the "soul's natural intuitive language." Through a series of exercises provided in the book, the reader is taught how to recognize and make use of messages and cues which Backman says are constantly being communicated from the soul. However, this is not a typical "how to become intuitive" book. While Backman offers deceptively simple and effective techniques to the reader, the information is provided within the context of expanding spiritual awareness. While it might be tempting to use intuitive knowledge to suit our own purposes, Backman makes it clear that intuitive language is meant to guide us to carry out "spiritual acts of duty," or to discover our souls' true intentions. While the author thinks outside the traditional religious box, she encourages readers to explore their intuitive connections while still respecting their faith tradition. This is an uncommon and fascinating read for anyone who seeks to discover an authentic mystical path.

    This is a most interesting book. It is partly a personal biography from the author about her experience with religion throughout her life, and is partly a workbook of sorts with small exercises spread throughout to guide the reader through their own exploration of faith. While I am personally not very religious, it is easy to appreciate the book because it still allowed me to discover my personal thoughts on religion. Whether religious or not, readers will undoubtedly learn something about them This is a most interesting book.

While I am personally not very religious, it is easy to appreciate the book because it still allowed me to discover my personal thoughts on religion. Whether religious or not, readers will undoubtedly learn something about themselves and reach a greater understanding of their experiences with faith. I love that this book gives every intention of reassuring readers that it's perfectly okay to mend traditional teachings of any religion with one's own religious experiences, no matter how different the two may seem.

    The author offers some spiritual insights and reflections from some of her life experiences about religion. I disagree with some of her views about Christianity, but I did found some positive affirmations in beliefs. Some these affirmations are: 1)"Those who seek to discover their authentic selves and follow wisdom of their souls will succeed." 2) "May we embrace each lesson that comes our way, knowing that the soul's voice will lead us to discover our most authentic selves, or who we are within The author offers some spiritual insights and reflections from some of her life experiences about religion.
