Edward gives us a first-person novel in which the narrator, "Tim," talks to us while living and from the other side after he dies. Though many will find his story overdramatized and long, by the end he gets to the point that the human spirit never dies and can be connected with even after death. Unless you're a die-hard Edward fan, there are more concise and elegant ways to make such a point. When I began reading "What If God Were The Sun"? I thought it was too simplistic and not particularly interesting, however, by the time I reached the end I was crying, unashamedly. The book was touching and enlightening, and although very simply written, is an enrichment for all of the family.

In his debut novel, What if God Were the Sun?, Edwards uses his skills as an author and lecturer to tell the moving story of a family confronting death for the first time. Informative, enlightening, and ultimately uplifting, Since the 1980s, psychic and medium John Edwards has brought solace to millions by helping them to communicate with their loved ones who have passed away. The book is at once beautiful and sensitive, full of compassion as well as the hard realities of life, but is overall an uplifting tale, even though the ending of the book might leave you needing tissue, as well as being very cleverly done and a reflection of the beginning in a kind of endless circle kind of wa. .

Timothy Callahan comes from a large Italian American family that loves big gatherings as well as Grandma Rosie's famous meatball recipe (although he still wishes she'd left out the raisins). But above all else, the Callahans love one another. Soon after Timothy discoveries that his mother is dying of cancer, the family gathers to view old family movies. While watching the faces of deceased relatives on the movie screen, he begins to ponder the afterlife

Written by Janet Dulin Jones and Jamie Pachino, based in part on a novel by John Edward, the film is about a dedicated nurse whose life is disrupted by her father's death. After losing her job, she finds comfort and inspiration in caring for a terminally ill woman with a quick wit and strong faith. What If God Were the Sun? was originally broadcast by Lifetime Television on May 14, 2007. php?title What If God Were the Sun%3F&oldid 886049805". Categories: 2007 television films.

In this reissue of his first novel, John Edward draws upon. He earns it. His work is just what the Psychic Arts needed in my humble opinion.

Lately, I've become fascinated, if not quite addicted, to watching a late-night program called "Crossings with John Edward." John Edward is a psychic medium who claims he communicates with people who have passed from this life, and from watching his show, I'd say his claims are pretty good - but that's another story. Edward has branched out into the literary world to bring his message of validation in this life in his new novel, "What If God Were The Sun?"
In his story, the central character is Timothy Callahan, a man who hails from a large Italian American family, a typical close-knit family that loves big gatherings. But above all else, the Callahans love one another. However tragedy has struck this boisterious family when Timothy's mother discovers she has cancer.
As the family struggles to deal with this new phase of their lives, Timothy begins to wonder what happens after someone dies, when they cross over to the afterlife. In one instance as the family watches old home movies, he wonders to himself, "As I look over at my mom, I know that she's wondering if all these faces of yesteryear will be the faces of her tomorrows. Will she see them when she crosses over? Will her loved ones welcome her on the other side, as we all want to believe? I hope so."
As his mother's struggles with her battle with cancer progresses, Timothy remembers back to his childhood when his mother explained that God was the sun, an epiphany that becomes more tangible as he wrestles with impending death. As the story comes to it's emotional and dramatic end, is it the death of Timothy's mother we've been following or someone else's journey to the afterlife? Readers will be surprised.
"What If God Were The Sun?" will probably not win any big prizes for being great literature, and at some points it's hard to figure out just who the narrator is talking about, but it's overall message is relatively simple. Edward's main point is to pass along the message of letting the important people in your life know that you care for them in this lifetime. He offers a comforting message that love that can bridge even death.
In his work as a psychic medium, Edward helps survivors work through the overwhelming and sometimes unbearable grief of losing a loved one. I was personally touched by this sensitive story. Whether you believe in an afterlife or not, it's kind of nice to think that the ones we love might be watching out for us after they're gone. I'd like to think my dad and aunt are watching out for me.

As I closed my completed edition of What if God Were the Sun, and started my makeshift book review with my semi-uninterested husband, his comment was "Vicki if John Edward wrote a recipe book, you would love it". After I threw him that initial look of O whatta you know anyway! I had to agree that yes, I do have a high regard for this enthusiastic lecturer and author. He earns it. His work is just what the Psychic Arts needed in my humble opinion. So here, I go with what is probably a biased review on this new book. This book touches on all of the overwhelming thoughts that sprint through your mind when the inevitable occasion of death enters your life. And I do mean ALL of the emotions! Love, devotion, past admiration and onto those feelings that we sometimes don't speak aloud about, guilty feelings of why didn't I spend more time with them, and the what about me's? How will I ever be able to move ahead? Or a feeling I had when my own mother passed... now my child will be shorted a grandmother! Timmy Callahan shares his private feelings of remorse, remembrance, and reverence on the total impact of life and death, as well as the possibility of life after death. Now is this book a quick cure for someone who has suffered the loss of someone they loved dearly? NO. Because as this book clearly points out, there is no simple treatment for losing a loved one to death. It is a healing process. Cures are quick, where as healing takes time. So many levels of the physical body and mind. Moreover, to come to a place where we can understand the loss due to death, we have to make sure we heal each of those levels. I think the nicest thing this book can provide a reader with, is almost a designed format to take you personally through the transition of all of those feelings that are present in bereavement. It does not matter who you have lost. Timmy speaks on the loss of his mother, his uncle, the grandmother, and even his dog. The ending leaves you with a dose of faith. Even for the reader that sits on the fence of uncertainty on life after death theories, I think you will find yourself recollecting events that may have occurred after the passing of someone dear to you. A similar event that subtly let us know, love does not die.

This book makes you a participant in the story. If you're looking for a heart-warming tale that gives hope of love lasting past the death of the physical body, this is it. This book is unique, in that the story is about the endless circle of love that transcends the earthly plane. John Edward fans will recognize John himself, in the fictional main character, as he describes his family, and his feelings about how we deal with life, death, family and God. A very easy read, with interesting plot devices. I recommend this book highly, and I look forward to more fictional tales from John Edward about the nature and importance of the spirit.

I have had several family members (this also meaning pets) pass on recently, and found it very difficult to move on without them. This book helped me realize that death is not the end. It is the beginning!
When friends of mine have loved ones pass on, I purchase this book to give to them, so that they too may realize how much our loved ones spirits are with us. I thank John Edwards for sharing his gift with all of us!

This book acts as a "primer" on the afterlife told as a simple family tale. Spiritual but non-denominational, it is lovely, comforting, easy and quick to read. For those of us brought up in a "fear of God" atmosphere, this is a book we wish we'd had long ago when we feared death and blamed God for taking people from us. It's a really good book for sharing, esp. with those who are dealing with the loss of a loved one.
