10 Great Souls I Want to Meet in Heaven is an educational book at its core. Extremely interesting and thought provoking, Michael Wilcox examines the lives of ten individuals who exhibit different traits that exemplify some of God’s greatest gifts. Wilcox makes it clear that these gifts are not just for a certain religion or segment of society, but for any that God deems suitable.
Religious figures, explorers, scientists are studied and their lives examined to reveal that these individuals’ greatest gifts and achievements where divinely inspired. Although certain individuals did not use their gifts to better Christianity, their lives and examples are still important to study and more importantly to recognize the source of their power was still God. The greatest lesson the reader will learn is that an open mind is a wonderful thing.
You will be a better person after reading this book. I highly recommend it.
