An inspirational journey of doubt joined with a journey of faith, pointing to the unconditional love of God.

This book is a memoir created with the unique blend of writings in spirituality and story-telling (fiction), joined with excerpts from the spirit communications received by James Padgett between 1914 and 1920. It is a confluence of a manuscript started and left unfinished 5 years ago, and selections from writings done since 2006. It covers a short but important period in the life of Joseph Babinsky from 2006 to the present. The book is in two parts. The first part uses an allegory to picture a massive transformation in which the author shifts from one understanding of reality to another. In the second part we are shown a glimpse of the author’s Journey of Faith, where he travels a long lonely road from a life as an ordained Christian minister to a place many years later where the influence of spirit communications changed the course of his life. “The Choice” is a thought-provoking book, well put together, and entertaining and inspirational – a good read.

Excerpt
I have journeyed across a large and vast land and have arrived at the shore of the ocean.

Have the voices of my own imagination brought me here? Or have guides and angels led me to this place?

I am standing at the edge of the ocean and to me it feels like a great abyss.
Am I being led to go forward into the water?

I am entertaining the possibility that my spiritual journey has led me to this location in order to paint a picture of a massive transformation taking shape within me.

Am I being asked to merely turn around and return the way I came? Is this experience teaching me that there is nowhere to go but back to my old life?

But a different view emerges within me.
Am I being asked to let loose of everything I have ever known and be willing to venture forward into something completely new?

If this is true … am I being asked to die?



Professional Reviews

Geoff Cutler
This is a great read. It's really quite phenomenal how one person can go from being an evangelical pastor, to the condition of being a mystic, in one life. Although of course that is precisely the path that the late M Scott Peck first outlined in his fabulous book "The Road less Traveled." (And clarified in "The Road Less Traveled & Beyond") But few manage it. Joseph is surely a fearless seeker after truth! One of the strengths of this book is I feel Joseph's coverage of doubt. Yes we should indeed be proud that we have had, or currently have, doubts. Doubt is one of the really powerful things that will lead us to real truth. Doubt is a sign that we are alive, and questioning, and progressive.
