Book Review & Giveaway – The Autism Prophecies

About the Book
More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer…combined.  No one knows why cases of autism are increasing worldwide. In The Autism Prophecies, award-winning author William Stillman, who is on the autism spectrum himself, completes his spiritual trilogy, including the Nautlus Book Siver Award Winner The Soul of Autism, by revealing the truth about autism and its purpose.

In this intriguing book, readers will learn:
  • How some with autism are natural-born healers who employ compassion, despite contradictory diagnoses indicating a void of empathy.
  • How “impossible” gifts such as mind control and speaking unknown languages could be occurring in some people with autism.
  • How parents can distinguish their child’s spiritual interactions from behavior that might be mislabeled as hallucinatory—and unduly medicated.
  • How wisdom of many people with autism may help us to prepare for future hardships and an impending renaissance of civility, respect, and compassion.
The Autism Prophecies challenges the traditionally held beliefs about people with disabilities and allows the reader to discover the spiritual grace of people with autism
Through his extensive research and interviews with families and persons with autism, author William Stillman shares examples of spiritual giftedness and anecdotes unveiling the amazing sensitivities of people with autism
Autism shows no signs of abating, despite research, studies, awareness, and fund-raising.  At this rate, concurrent with research efforts, it is high time society alters its focus not just for what causes autism, but for what autism causes.

My Take On The Book
While I do not have children that have autism, I know many parents who do and this book held wonderful resources for parents who does know, loves and wants to understand somebody with autism.

This is a great book that will truly make you see the intelligence of these individuals as well as how amazin these individuals truly are. If you have ever felt yourself doubting this fact, this book will definitely renew your faith.

I decided to share my copy with a family that has an autistic child and they stated that this book was perfect and provided such a great glimpse into the life of heir child.

If this book sounds like one that you would like as a part of your own library you can find it on Amazon!
