Author Biography

Aaron A. Reno was born in 1975 just outside of San Francisco, California to a Jewish mother and a Baptist father. For many years as a child, Aaron attended Jewish Sunday school classes where he learned the basics of the Old Testament. Because his parents were of different religious beliefs, Aaron was advised by his parents to uncover and value the moral of each Biblical story and then to decide what he would believe based on his own conclusions. Because of this atypical religious upbringing, Aaron learned not to judge others for their religious views, but rather to try and understand the common thread that ran through both family religions. In this way, Aaron's religious studies got off to a rather unique start in contrast from those children who were instructed to memorize by rote and hold their particular text(s) as absolute truth.

"Something Like God" by Aaron A. Reno is a practical, easy-to-follow guide to attaining the much sought-after spirituality which seems to be absent from our hectic everyday lives, through easy to comprehend lessons and enjoyable exercises. Tips are given to promote physical health, which will in turn lead to spiritual development. The practical exercises allow the reader to consolidate the lesson taught in the chapter, and as each one builds upon the other, it ensures maximum retention for optimum results. The 'Stop and Think' icon encourages the reader to reflect on what he has read and permit it to sink in to full understanding. The 'Further Reading' section is an additional plus, as it allows the readers to further expand on the knowledge gained in the book and incorporate it in their current belief system.

The author, having walked his own spiritual path, conveys his knowledge on spirituality through a deceptively simple but profound handbook, so that the readers may awaken spiritually, regardless of their religious beliefs or practices. As I have never been a religious person myself, but always longing for a deep spiritual connection to the Divine Being or Universal Consciousness, this book initially surprised me pleasantly but had a lasting emotional effect on me, as I was experiencing numerous a-ha moments till the very last line. It is a book I would most definitely recommend for every spiritual seeker. Do not be fooled by its apparent simplicity in explaining spirituality. Be receptive, be a vessel, and it will lead you to the path of enlightenment.
