Reviewed by Lisa Jones for Readers' Favorite

The Rainbow Bridge by Brent Hunter focuses on religion in today's society. Brent believes that every religion is ultimately reaching for the same goal. He also gives some excellent advice for finding an inner peace. The author strives to find a middle ground that can connect many, regardless of race or religion. There is a variety of quotes and poems throughout the book which helps readers to understand what Brent is trying to portray. The Rainbow Bridge connects us all and the meditations provided in this book can connect anyone to this bridge. By focusing on things in our own lives, we can change our thoughts and opinions and this in turn will make for a better world.

Brent Hunter has taken a great deal of time preparing this book. The Rainbow Bridge was unlike anything that I had ever read before. The clever way in which the author demonstrated the points made the reader feel as if they, too, could achieve such goals. If indeed today's society took notice of just a few simple ideas from this inspiring book then the world would be truly a better place. As a reader, I especially liked the poetry since it was not only inspiring but very uplifting. It was as if a huge weight had been lifted from my soul. Some might try and fail at some of the ideas mentioned, but the one thing to cling onto is hope. We all should take note and continue relentlessly on our own journey. The best thing for me was the way in which it brought people together from different backgrounds or religions. The Rainbow Bridge was fantastic and inspirational. I enjoyed it and it certainly gave me a lot to think about.
