The author Micheal Andrisano, Sr. had a near death experience when he was very young due to a serious medical problem. During this experience he remembers being visited by angels and receiving a message from God. It wasn’t until much later in life that he felt comfortable with passing this message on. “Christianity, Karma and Reincarnation,” is the first book of several that tells his life’s story and discusses his firmly held beliefs in Christianity, karma and reincarnation.
Micheal begins his story with his early childhood and teen years. In spite of experiencing a childhood full of stress, poverty, disappointments and health issues, he developed some very strong beliefs in regards to his faith. I found it interesting that, as a Catholic, he believes in karma and reincarnation. He fully explains why he does so and uses many examples, like passages in the Bible, to support why he devoutly believes in the message that he received. He also strongly believes in Purgatory and he ties this belief into his other two about karma and reincarnation. By sharing his message through his books, the author hopes to provide you with the key to changing your life.
In “Christianity, Karma and Reincarnation,” Micheal Andrisano, Sr. hopes that by telling his story and explaining the message, the reader will be able to use what he is teaching to better understand their purpose for being here and to find their way back to God. If you follow a Christian based religion and are open to learning about ideas that might typically be outside of your belief system, then you will find the author’s arguments to be very interesting and will probably enjoy being able to think outside of typical Christian beliefs. If you are not so open minded and find the title itself to be uncomfortable to you because it goes outside of your belief system, then this is probably not for you.
