MEDIA, Pa. – Mar. 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Jerry ThompSon and Rashiid Coleman are co-authors of an intuitive new book: “The Believer’s Guide to The Law of Attraction” (ISBN: 978-1-4243-3947-1), which challenges the “Law of Attraction” and communicates that people of faith must re-examine how to achieve what they want in life.
Since March of 2006, “The Secret,” a DVD about the “Law of Attraction” has sold over 1.5 million copies. The book, by the same name, has sold over two million copies.
Talk show hosts, Oprah, Larry King, and Ellen Degeneres were so mesmerized by the promise of “The Law of Attraction” that they all did multiple shows on the subject. The endorsement of these media giants has sent thousands flocking to bookstores and the Internet to grab a piece of this promise.
In a country where nearly 80 percent of the population still believes in God or a higher power, there is a growing concern that adopting the ideas of “The Law of Attraction” means there is no room for faith.
According to ThompSon, “The Law of Attraction” espouses that we are all magnets. We attract things, people, and situations into our lives by virtue of our thoughts and emotions. Critics have argued that there is no way people would purposefully attract the debt, depression, or other adverse situations which are the realities of many.
“The problem is most people are creating and attracting by default. By focusing most of their time on what they do not want, they continually attract things that make them unhappy. We want to show people that there is a better way to live,” Coleman said.
The popularity of “The Law of Attraction” is creating a backlash from some who claim its promise is over-prescribed and even dangerous to people desperate for change. Critics say people who adopt this thinking can lead their lives to ruin.
“It is time for people to be open-minded,” ThompSon explains. “A 92-minute documentary cannot teach the full balance of universal law. The most critical elements required to give it better balance probably ended up on the cutting-room floor.”
The authors wrote “The Believer’s Guide to the Law of Attraction” to help people achieve balance and move their lives forward, while allowing them to maintain their beliefs. This cleverly written volume teaches people the complementary relationship between faith and universal law.
“We wanted to provide a digestible combination of universal law, faith, and science,” Coleman said. “There is no other book like this and by the way things are heating up, it could not have come at a better time.”
In an effort to mainstream the book as quickly as possible, the duo has elected to self-publish the book for online purchase only. To accelerate distribution, an affiliate program paying 40 percent of the profits to enterprising individuals who market the e-book is also available.
