In A Guide to the Narrow Path, Edward Monjay shares with readers what their relationship with God should look like and helps them see the errors they have accepted when it comes to honoring God, observing the Sabbath Day, calling God’s true name, repentance, and a lot more. The message of this book is rooted in the Bible and the author takes readers on a journey through the scriptures to identify the will of God for his creatures. Readers will find compelling passages that identify God as “Yahweh,” the link between the name of Jesus and the Greek god Zeus, the significance of the commandments in living a life that is pleasing to God, and a lot more.

While A Guide to the Narrow Path is a book on biblical counseling, it gives readers insights on how to read and interpret the Bible. The author fills the writing with historical references, considering the movements just after the death of Jesus and how the books of the Bible were assembled and approved. The “narrow path” invites readers to consider biblical truth as the sole means to salvation and the author does an impeccable job in illustrating how some of the doctrines held by churches deviate from the central teachings of the Bible. Edward Monjay writes with the confidence of someone who knows what they are talking about. The writing is fluid and the biblical references are relevant to the themes. This book has a revolutionary message to modern believers, a book that challenges readers to accept the truth of the Bible.

A Guide to the Narrow Path by Edward Monjay is a book based on the biblical image of the “narrow path,” and the author explores biblical teachings and points out what is acceptable and the precepts that lead to salvation. This book has a strong warning: walking the narrow path isn’t easy, and that is why many people choose to dilute the word of God with their own illusions or choose what seems less challenging. But this book explores a variety of themes, including the true name of God, “Yahweh,” repentance, honoring the Sabbath Day, and why few people actually repent, end-time predictions, and a lot more.

Edward Monjay has a grounded knowledge of the Bible, especially the Old Testament, and he walks readers through the essential teachings of the Old Testament. The compelling argument of the book is that what is presented in the older scriptures is more relevant, so from the prophets through the experience of Israel, the author demonstrates the power of God’s name. While I found this book to be compelling and well-written, I also felt that its message will appeal to a specific group of believers. The writing is fluid and enjoyable and the author does a great job in including relevant biblical references to support his arguments. A Guide to the Narrow Path is compelling, but for readers who believe in the New Testament, it will be a huge challenge accepting the message of this book. Nonetheless, it is very informative and well-written.

A Guide to the Narrow Path by Edward Monjay is about the narrow path that leads to the salvation of Yahweh and the author invites readers to reflect on some of the powerful passages from the Bible that define this path. One immediately notices that there is no middle ground in walking the path to God, and the author bases his teachings on the Word of God and explores the implications of God’s commands and His will for humanity. In this book, readers will find information to prove that Saturday is the Sabbath, teachings on true salvation, what true repentance looks like, the nature of temptation, thoughts on Hell with strong references to the Apostle Peter’s view.

This book is packed with information and surprising revelations, and the author comes across as an expert in the Bible and in church history, exploring the different ways the word of God has been tampered with through history, the formation of the books, and what is authentic. For many readers, this book will be a wake-up call to rethink what they have been taught and what they have believed in and practiced until now. There are startling statements like: “Most think they are saved, but they are apostate.” The message of this book is very clear and it describes the narrow path from a clear-cut, black-and-white perspective that leaves no room for compromise when it comes to religious practice. The book is well-written and in an accessible style. The biblical references and reflections on the commandments offer additional material for reflection. A Guide to the Narrow Path is a book that is suitable for believers in Yahweh or Jesus, filled with spiritual insight and church history.

A Guide to the Narrow Path by Edward Monjay is a book that gives a new interpretation of the biblical verse from Mathew: “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” In this book, the author clarifies some erroneous doctrines and helps readers with historical facts and developments leading up to such beliefs. An example is a question about the Sabbath day, which should be kept holy for the Lord. With biblical references, the author argues for and makes a relevant presentation of what it means to keep the Sabbath Day and why that day is not what most people think it is, discusses the commandments of God and how to keep them, makes a powerful statement on the true name of God, “Yahweh,” and why many people are misled to use false names to address Him.

I don’t know the author’s denomination, but he is very compelling in the way he speaks about the Bible and this book is powerful proof that he’s done his research well. Apart from discussing topics like forgiveness, repentance, true salvation, and others, Edward Monjay also invites readers to seek an understanding of the formation of the Bible and the history of the Church from the time of the apostles. This book got me, and I am on my own journey to confirming the statement it makes. A Guide to the Narrow Path is one of those books that will challenge any reader to seek the truth in the Bible. It is easy to read and has tons of references that are informative.

How well do modern-day Christians know the scriptures? Edward Monjay calls out all the original messages and commandments that people blatantly ignore and reject. A Guide to the Narrow Path: Walking with Yahweh Volume I covers a range of thought-provoking topics, from the actual name of God, Yahweh, and the savior, Yahshua, to keeping the Sabbath day holy. The author gives an in-depth discussion about the history of the name Yahweh, the changes and various translations the pagan churches made to the scriptures, and why they are against the original teachings. He gives the history of the raiment churches and how they upheld the Sabbath worship. The author encourages people to truly repent, be faithful in deeds and truth, fear Yahweh's name by obeying His commandments, and use the spirit of discernment to differentiate between what is from Yahweh and what is from Lucifer. He also covers topics on marriage, false doctrines, pagan holidays, living a holy life, the end time of Babylon, heaven, and hell.

I feel enlightened and transformed after reading A Guide to the Narrow Path. To fully grasp this book's message, a person must have an open mind as it covers sensitive and triggering topics. Find a quiet place to read, and brace yourself to dive into the truth about Yahweh. Edward Monjay is uncompromisingly honest and gives well-researched information with backing references and scripture. He uses numbered titles, bullet points, tables, and bold letters, which makes the book organized and easy to understand. I loved that the author emphasized that he is not judging people or their life choices, but simply trying to give facts. If you are seeking the truth about Yahweh, this book is for you because only through faith, truth, love, and obedience shall you find yourselves on the narrow path to Yahweh.

Religion is a sensitive topic for many, let alone the questioning of it. With great courage, Edward Monjay discusses some of the most controversial topics with Bible verses to back him up. His aim in writing A Guide to the Narrow Path: Walking with Yahweh is to bring believers and non-believers to the narrow path of salvation. Keeping the Sabbath holy and reading the scriptures is not enough for him. One should have faith, obey Yahweh's laws, and seek Him with all our heart, body, and soul. Edward discusses marriage issues, ways to avoid fighting, tips for building up each other's spiritual lives, and what true salvation and repentance are. Finally, he discusses the proper way to address the Almighty and why He should not be called God, Lord, or Jesus.

What I liked about A Guide to the Narrow by Edward Monjay is his thorough research and use of Bible verses to support his discussions. This gesture to readers shows the author is providing authentic and factual information. This helps the reader believe the information and makes one curious and attentive to discover what the author is trying to convey. I loved his method of content delivery and the way he breaks up his topics into small manageable texts is commendable, making it easier to understand and remember the information throughout the reading experience. I recommend this book to believers and non-believers alike since it will provide them with tips for seeking the true face of salvation.

Most of us, especially those of the Christian denomination, grew up in churches attended by our parents. Whether Protestant, Catholic, or Adventist, we never questioned the preference for one church over another. But when we become adults and learn certain things, some of us stop going to the churches we went to as children. A Guide to the Narrow Path: Walking with Yahweh by Edward Monjay was an eye-opener, revealing the hypocrisy hidden inside church doctrines and traditions. Monjay provides an in-depth discussion of what motivated early Christians and church leaders to act as they did, placing their desire to serve their inflated egos over doing the will of Yahweh. Monjay enters the Sabbath observance debate and discusses the role of the New Testament in the Bible.

When I first read the description of A Guide to the Narrow Path I was curious about the content and Edward Monjay’s motivation for writing it. My decision to review this book was fully rewarded when I saw the effort put into the research that supports the author’s conclusions. The author has highlighted biblical scripture concerning diversions from the truth. This authenticates his analysis and provides sources for readers to research further. I also applaud him for using rhetorical questions frequently, which allows readers to reflect on their actions, such as whether Yahweh would contradict Himself by allowing His people to use His name in vain. I recommend this book to readers seeking well-researched information about Yahshua’s will for his people. However, they need to be open-minded to challenge their current beliefs to get the most out of this book.

A Guide to the Narrow Path: Walking with Yahweh Volume I by Edward Monjay is a religious guide, and as its title suggests, it discusses the narrow path to salvation. Together, we explore Monjay’s spiritual journey which starts with studying the modern Christian church and transcends to the true purpose of God, referred to in this account as Yahweh. Seeking a deeper truth and more meaningful connection, Monjay explores different topics centering on life, faith, belief in ourselves, and belief in our place in the wider universe to help others do the same.

Edward Monjay has a deep spiritual connection to Yahweh, and the discussion of the end times sparks a lot of poignance for the sorry state of affairs our world is in. He writes with great passion about keeping to the narrow path and keeping faith at the center of everything we do. For those wishing to follow this same path, the guidance is clear and penned with confidence and narrative flair. Monjay's writing is wonderfully balanced between being confident and upbeat, offering a quiet but reassured sense that peace is possible for those willing to seek it. Overall, I would certainly say that A Guide to Narrow Path is a must-read for those interested in scripture and a more intensive study of their sense of faith.

Edward Monjay’s A Guide to the Narrow Path: Walking with Yahweh is an interesting but controversial book. This book is Edward’s call to true belief in Yahshua and Yahweh while disapproving of the use of the names Jesus, Christ, God, and the like. He also decries worshipping on Sunday instead of the Sabbath. Edward warns that following the information in his book will lead others to treat you as strange. He believes the holidays celebrated by the modern church are pagan in origin and that it is sinful to observe them. These “sinful” holidays include Thanksgiving. Edward gives a great bullet-point history of errors introduced by the Catholic Church. He also discusses the origin of the modern Bible, including how the King James Version came to be.

Edward Monjay defends his particular belief in Yahshua and Yahweh. In A Guide to the Narrow Path, Monjay writes with conviction about what many would consider heresy. His beliefs are an interesting mixture of accepted doctrine and what many would call erroneous belief. Reading this book will cause you to think. It is an easy read but requires paying attention to the details. I agree with him that true belief in Yahweh is evidenced by a change of 180 degrees in your lifestyle. There is a lot of repetition, but I imagine this is intentional and meant for emphasis. Monjay condemns the Masons and points out the many errors they introduced into worship. This book deserves careful reading and is the first of a series. Put on your thinking cap and enjoy reading a different perspective from what you currently embrace.
