Book Review: Pilgrim Process by Matthew Spencer

How do I describe this book? Dystopian? Revealing? Insightful? A wake-up call?

All of those descriptions would fit it quite well.

Reading Pilgrim Process was like sitting by the side of a bubbling stream on a warm, sunny spring day; tossing a fishing line into the foaming current; feeling a tug on the line; reeling it slowly in; and then suddenly have the fish leap out of the water into your waiting hands.

Could it be describing our world 5, 10, 20 years into our future?

Everything that Mr. Spencer portrays in revealing detail is easily within the realm of possibility given the current technologies combined with the high level corruption, abuse of power, and power plays by today’s corporocrats.

He offers an intense, if not detailed insight into the potentially dangerous and stormy waters that could develop if we, the people, do not pay attention and do not assert ourselves and he does it through the eyes of people with faith, belief, and religion.

It’s a timely and relevant story we should pay attention to.

All in all, a great read and I look forward to reading more of his work.
