With a psychological and philosophical perspective, author Angela Berquist discusses the mystery that surrounds the Holy Grail. There have been so many conflicting views and opinions about the Grail, mostly on formal religion vs. compelling storytelling, but whatever beliefs circling it, it can’t be denied that Grail inspires many discussions which blur the distinction between alleged fact and outright fiction. Through The Grail Reclaimed, the author’s book released through Xlibris, she enlightens readers on the profoundness behind the sensationalized Grail.
Readers will learn that the Holy Grail has inspired poets, artists, knights, and, lately, a general public searching for the secret of this mystic alleged chalice. The hope is that the discovery of the Grail secret will transform humanity. The truth is that individuals do not know much about the Grail. There are some historical facts, but these facts mostly concern what people have felt about the Grail at different periods in history.
In The Grail Reclaimed, Berquist talks about the Grail from a psychological or philosophical standpoint—not to either challenge or accept the previous arguments about it. It is important to understand that the Grail is old, older than Jesus of Nazareth. It is a symbol for more than Christianity and expresses something about human consciousness.
Berquist wrote this book in the hope that people will rediscover and eventually learn to use this consciousness in insightful ways. Readers are in for one unforgettable illuminating experience as they discover the truth behind the Holy Grail with The Grail Reclaimed.
This book will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in San Diego, CA on November 12, 2010. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
