Wisdom from the Greater Community
Wisdom from the Greater Community is a Sacred Text of the New Message from God.
Wisdom from the Greater Community Volume One was the first published book of the New Message. It is a collection of revelations that the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers received in public, between the years of 1986 and 1989.
Marshall Vian Summers received Wisdom from the Greater Community Volume Two in 1992 and 1993.
"Wisdom Volume One is a wise and compassionate guide for discovering the New Message teaching on the power of relationship and inner certainty in everyday life. Wisdom 1 speaks to that persistent feeling that there is something important to do in life. It provides a Greater Community perspective on topics ranging from “Marriage” and “Achieving Peace” to “Provoking Change” and “World Evolution”. Wisdom 1 cuts through the uncertainty and confusion of our time to enable you to find and to follow what you have always known."
"Wisdom Volume Two concentrates on the needs of a world in transition as the greater context for finding your contribution and resolving personal dilemmas. It introduces the larger arena of intelligent life called the Greater Community and provides the insights and perspective necessary to prepare for a future that will be unlike anything that we have ever known. In the New Message teaching on topics ranging from “Discernment” and “Greater Community Realities” to “Courage” and “Religion as Mystery,” Wisdom 2 opens the way to living a greater life in a greater universe. Both volumes of Wisdom from the Greater Community are a powerful compliment to the journey in Steps to Knowledge."
