What a treat it is to find a book that is so fascinating, enlightening, and educational that it can’t be put down until it is all read! The Boy Who Saw True is such a book. It was first printed in 1953, and is now in its 11th printing. The author preferred to remain anonymous.
It is the story of a boy who started his diary of psychic experiences as soon as he could write. He lived in the Victorian era in England, when psychic phenomena were discounted. His parents thought him odd, and never encouraged him, but he had a tutor who was open-minded. The boy was visited by various members of his family who had died, and was given messages to communicate to the family.
Eventually he was able to get many spirits to tell him what Heaven is like, how it feels to not have a body, about souls who hang around and are confused about dying. He had what could be called angelic visitors, who explained things to him, and guided him. He also had spontaneous past-life memories.
