I really found it fascinating, the way you drew
so many connections with the number seven. I am amazed - it's such a fascinating book - it gives our logical minds something
to "chew" on! It's a fun, playful look at the magical number seven.
Harry Ossian Stoddard's book 7, THE SPIRITUAL NUMBER is a portal to the mystery and
significance of the number 7 in spiritual literature.
Clusters of seven crystallize throughout the scriptures of the
world's great religions, and Stoddard makes a compelling case that by orienting our spiritual quest to these seven-faceted
designs we can heighten our understanding of God's historical and everpresent work among humanity.
The book is not
only a monograph on the spiritual number, however; it is a passionate hymn to the God-Man Christ, Who comes age after age
to fan the fire of His Love and draw His creation closer to Him.
Meher Baba once said that He wanted to bring all religions
together "Like beads on one string." Ossian Stoddard has used that saying as the starting point for his new book, 7 The Spiritual
Number. This new book is a fresh addition to the many books about Meher Baba, offering a umerological approach to the interrelationships
among the great religions....
This book seems to me to be like a primer for young people
and those who are seeking. It gives much information in a comparatively small book. Ossian makes great use of God Speaks and
The Nothing and The Everything. In addition, he gives a complete listing of books by and about Meher Baba as well as other
books that explain the great religions. And there are many websites given to help the aspirant to chart his or her way to
finding the correct spiritual path.
