The Immortal “I”
of the Soul
Eugene B. Shea
perhaps the most fascinating and enlightening book that I have
ever read. ...
I am going through it for the third time."
Fr. George Karnik, Archdiocese of Dubuque
Co-Founder, Christian Experience Weekend
This seminal book integrates
new 21st century paradigms of Heart, Soul and Mind with the
words of Christ, the Saints, and scores of paragons of scientific
and social disciplines; yielding rational foundations for new
schools of Christian psychology, psychotherapy, and cognitive
Introduces for the first time the neurological ‘autopilot’ in
the brain which competes with the Soul for the management of
our lives, revealing the full genesis of our motivations and
behavior —why we do what we do—and a clear avocational path
to spiritual growth and psychological and social well-being.

“... the book is far richer than I had ever supposed in
my earlier difficulties with it... Now as my sense of immortality
is confronted by my likely death in a year or so, I am almost
gleefully watching it resolve in a victory for the “I”, a certainty
that I am now seeing amplified in your book with greater and
greater clarity. So\ thank you for our continued association.”

“... a nicely put together synthesis of those elements which
can lead us to happiness ... The author writes clearly
and well and has an infectious sense of conviction... maintains
an unbounded spirit of optimism, but is not a 'pusher.' ...
shows many years of searching from East to West, from classical
times to our century. Who can reed fuse it? Who
does not need it?

Reflections on Man,
"In my sixties, still living with the pain and anger of
childhood, I was unhappy
and estranged. ... Our priest gave us the book and it was like
going from deep darkness into bright sunlight! ... I felt like
a tsunami had washed over me. My heart bloomed with HOPE
for the first time, and it was so beautiful! ... I read the
book 4 or 5 times... The Gift of each day now has meaning and
purpose. ... I look in the mirror and see someone I never really
knew. I can still see myself as a little girl so scared
and nowhere to turn. I thought death might be the only answer.
I praise God for holding me close and bringing me to TODAY."
"I found something of interest to me on almost every page.
... In your book―from the very title―it is seen that God has
given you rare insights. ... No other modern author I am aware
of, certainly not in psychological literature, has been able
to say such things.”
John Eubersax, Ph.D
Author - A Beautiful Mind, Hieh Reason, et.al

“This remarkable book
brings fresh insights to perennial questions. The

receive the attention it deserves."l
