I recently read the book “How to Achieve A Heaven on Earth” edited by John E. Wade II. It is a collection of 101 essays about making the world a better place. The authors of the essays include world leaders, community activists, writers, and thinkers. Some of the essay authors include Barack Obama, Al Gore, Tony Blair, and Martin Luther King, Jr. The book is divided into eleven large sections including peace, security, prosperity, racial harmony, and ecological harmony. Each section contains a number of essays that fall under the larger subject. Quite a few of the essays came out of post hurricane Katrina New Orleans. The essays all talk about ways to make the world a better place. Some focus on large worldwide scale changes while others are on a smaller community or individual level.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I found the essays interesting and informative, even if I didn’t always agree with them. I knew I would like the ecological harmony section, since I have a fondness for all things green, and I was not disappointed. I also enjoyed the other sections as well, particularly the health, prosperity, and spiritual harmony sections. Some of the essays I had previously read as they were reprinted (obviously Martin Luther King, Jr. did not write a new essay for this book), but most were new to me. The essays that came out of New Orleans about the programs to help people rise above the destruction following hurricane Katrina were very interesting and heart warming .
This was an uplifting book and made me want to go out and see what I could do to make the world a better place. I would definitely recommend reading “How to Achieve A Heaven on Earth“. As an extra, half the royalties from the sales of the book go to the charity Soldiers of Love.
