An Afternoon’s Dictation: Inclusive Revelation for the 21st CenturyISBN: 9781957354248
In 1999 Steven Greenebaum felt he’d hit the wall. Fifty years old, he could not make sense of his life or the world around him. For several months he angrily demanded answers from God, if God were there. One afternoon, an inner voice told him to get a pen and paper and write. Steven then took dictation – three pages, not of commandments but guidance for leading a meaningful life.
An Afternoon’s Dictation grapples with, organizes, and deeply explores the revelations Steven received and then studied for over ten years. His sharing is NOT offered as the only possible way to understand the dictation. It is offered, rather, as a start. The book’s sections include deep explorations into “The Call to Interfaith,” “The Call to Love One Another,” “The Call to Justice,” and “The Call to Community.” These explorations are rooted in a crucial part of the dictation that directs us to “Seek truth in the commonality of religions – which are but the languages of speaking to Me.”
Thus, An Afternoon’s Dictation builds on what unites our diverse spiritual traditions, not what divides us. It shows us a path to respecting our differences while embracing the unity of the great callings of our spiritual traditions. An Afternoon’s Dictation provides caring guidance forward in these hugely challenging times – if we are open to it.
With so much distrust and turmoil tearing at us worldwide, An Afternoon’s Dictation offers a vision of respectful unity, a loving and inclusive path forward – if we choose to take it.
