Description

An examination of the material world as a spiritual school, specifically tailored to develop consciousness.


Earth is a School presents the case for the material world as a spiritual school, specifically tailored to develop consciousness and bring the human soul closer to recognition of its divine source. William Willdblood discusses how our planet serves as a training ground for the soul, with particular reference to the present time as one of decision and a kind of end of term examination.

It can be hard to discern spiritual purpose behind the upheavals in many areas of contemporary life, but it is there if one knows how to look.

A Note From the Publisher

William Wildblood was born in London. After a period working as an antiques dealer, he left the UK. He ran a guesthouse in South India for several years and then another in France where he was also an occasional guide at the medieval abbey of le Mont Saint-Michel. He returned to England at the end of the 20th century since when he has worked for BBC magazines in various capacities, including seven years as an antiques columnist.

Advance Praise

William Wildblood has a unique and admirable ability to set out spiritual ideas in a language that is interesting, engaging and easy to read. In this work, he proposes that our apparently imperfect world is the ideal instrument for the perfection of human souls. The book judiciously mixes Christianity, Buddhism and Wildblood’s own mystical experiences to make a lucid whole, and I thoroughly recommend it.

After the stunning events of 2020, Western Christians face their toughest ever challenge. How can the lone individual survive spiritually, when confronted by a worldwide materialistic bureaucracy determined to impose a system of inverted values? William Wildblood has confronted this question head-on; and written a book of urgent, and potentially soul-saving, importance. Earth is a School puts our continuing, worsening crisis into the cosmic perspective of God's plans for mortal men on this earth. And by the end, Wildblood leaves the reader both encouraged and energised for the task ahead.

I will consider inviting the author to write an op-ed for Fox News Opinion based on this book. It's a thought provoking, intriguing perspective on life that deserves a wide audience.
