In his new book “The Life Journey of a Missionary's Son” (published by Balboa Press) Albert E. Barnes offers readers a glimpse into the unusual events of his life while exploring the answers to some of life’s profound questions.

“The Life Journey of a Missionary's Son” is a very spiritually focused memoir. Barnes shares stories on a variety of subjects, ranging in topics from:

  •     unique inside stories of eight U.S. presidents, ranging from Eisenhower to George H.W. Bush, as told by Barnes’ brother, Don, who was the president’s personal interpreter for Latin American affairs
  •     working on a major U.S. defense program where he had control of his own air force of two heavy bombers, one super tanker, one supersonic jet fighter and one former Air Force One
  •     a team member of NASA’s Apollo Moon Program
  •     addressing major spiritual subjects, including: “Where did we come from? When does the soul enter our bodies? What determines our life experiences? God’s existence. The nature of sin and evil.”
  •     personal stories of a haunted house, addiction, dreams that predict the future, and many more

One of the topics Barnes is most interested in is the contemplation of spiritual and supernatural ideas and events. He offers readers his thoughts on God’s existence, dreams as premonitions, haunting, answered prayers and the place humanity has in the universe.

“There are two outstanding features of this book,” says Barnes. “I believe that the large variety of subject is unprecedented and will have very broad appeal. And ‘The Life Journey of a Missionary's Son’ is very generously endowed with photographs, way beyond what you will find in most books.”
