Fleury's highly praised book details how life and light in the Bible are really tied together (lifelight), with The Light, Jesus Christ, being the guide and the sustainer in life’s journey of spiritual growth in Christian living.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Every human being, regardless of station, status or upbringing, hopes to achieve two things in life - fulfillment and joy. Yet these nearly always elude most of us, as sincerity and effort can mean little if we tend to look in the wrong places. Award winning author Bernard Fleury shows us the way in the first book in the Called into Life by the Light series, 'How Jesus Christ Leads Us To The Kingdom Of Heaven'.
'How Jesus Christ Leads Us To The Kingdom Of Heaven' begins with reading and pondering the many inspirational Bible verses in both the Old and New Testaments on life and light. Readers will see how life and light in the Bible are really tied together (lifelight), with The Light, Jesus Christ, being the guide and the sustainer in life’s journey of spiritual Growth in Christian living. Union with The Light in the heavenly Jerusalem, the Kingdom of Heaven, is the ultimate fulfillment, the goal of every human life.
"As Baptism Bible verses attest, relying on divine mercy, we take our first steps into the holiness which leads to inner peace," Fleury stated. "Our inner light begins to match the will of God. We take a number of other steps like living the way of the beatitudes, being pure of heart, being peacemakers, and loving God and neighbor - all of which give evidence of a real faith in Christ Jesus. We are moving closer to the Kingdom of Heaven. Finally when we have drawn our last breath and climbed the stairway to heaven, Jesus Christ is waiting. We pass through the pearly gates and see him face to face. We know fully how Jesus Christ leads us to the kingdom of heaven, the goal of our Faith Journey of Spiritual Growth in Christian Living."
Nearly all of Bernard's books center squarely on the theme of Light as a Someone and a Something. He believes we are all Called Into Life By The Light. Life and Light are tied together. Lifelight describes their relationship best because both our “without” (our physical being) and our “within” (our spirit) are basically light in two different forms:
1. Physical energy that occupies space, has weight, can be measured, and
2. Psychic or spiritual energy which is a force that causes things to happen and, thus, real energy, but it does not occupy space, have weight, nor can it be empirically measured.
Fleury's book has received a number of 5-star rated reviews. Reviewer Christian Sia said, "The book is written in a compelling style, with prose that is very accessible, and the author shows great mastery of the Catholic faith, the scriptures, and the sacraments. . . 'How Jesus Christ Leads Us to the Kingdom of Heaven' is a book that exposes some of the powerful truths in the Bible, especially Jesus’ role as a shepherd, leading us to the Father. It’s a gift of faith, one that will fortify and encourage readers on their walk with God.”
Reviewer Divine Zape stated, "Reading this book felt like having a good conversation with someone sharing their faith and ultimate hope in a very simple manner. The writing is devoid of theological jargon that can making comprehension hard for the ordinary reader. The biblical references were very relevant and they helped me reflect again about my faith."
Reviewer Edith Wairimu said, "Somehow, Fleury manages to capture the Christian’s journey in this world, from start to end. This makes 'How Jesus Christ Leads Us to the Kingdom' a great read for everyone, regardless of the stage they are at in their walk with Christ.”
