Brent Hunter’s book, The Rainbow Bridge, highlights religious traditions’ common theme — the need to cultivate inner values like love and compassion if we are to create a happier, more peaceful world. This commonality is the main reason why we can say that the core essence of all the world’s major religions are the same and that they should co-exist harmoniously in the service of humanity. I believe that readers who are interested in love, kindness, inner peace and a better world may find much in this book to inspire them.
— H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama
“From the beginning of time all we’ve ever wanted is to love and be loved, and from the beginning of time all we’ve ever done on this planet is make it nearly impossible to experience our highest desire. That is because we have imagined in our illusions that one of us is somehow better than another. This idea of “betterness” has created divisions between religions, between cultures, between people and between nations. The idea is also a false thought, directly contradicting the greatest teaching of all religions in the world which, put into one sentence, reduces itself to a simple truth: We are all one. The Rainbow Bridge, a wonderful treasure conceived by Brent Hunter, is a demonstration of that truth that you can hold in your hand. Once held in your hand, you will hold it in your heart as well and it will illumine your soul.”
— Neale Donald Walsch, N.Y. Times bestselling author of the five-book series Conversations With God (Books 1, 2 and 3), Friendship with God and Communion with God

“Religions of the world are increasingly becoming more and more divisive. My Grandfather, Mohandas K. Gandhi, once said: Unfortunately mankind has learned just enough from religion to hate and not enough to love. He also said: religion is like climbing a mountain. Everyone is ultimately going to reach the same peak, so why should it matter which side of the mountain one chooses to climb? In his book “The Rainbow Bridge”, Brent Hunter exemplifies these Truths. If humanity is to be saved from utter doom it is important that all of us, individually and collectively, take the first step to learn from all the religions of the world that love is more powerful and positive than being consumed by hate. The Rainbow Bridge is the first step in the right direction.”
— Dr. Arun Gandhi, President, Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute ( GandhiForChildren.org )
“Our great wisdom and spiritual traditions across the planet and through the ages converge on astounding findings- they all call us to find the miraculous bridge within to cross from the separation of ego-based life to the higher ground, the higher script, the awakened global mind, where we enter the Unified Field of Sacred Presence. Whether the call of Tao, or Aum, or Yahweh, or Christ, or Allah, or Buddha’s Emptiness…they all share the same fundamental diagnosis that ego-based life brings individual and collective human suffering of all kinds, and that finding the sacred bridge -the rainbow bridge- that reveals and models the secret of unity-in-diversity and diversity-in-unity is the crossing to the higher life of peace and joyous living. Brent Hunter’s timely book flows from a wealth of personal experience and confirmation over the years and brings into the open the fundamental principles- the global principles- that are embodied in our diverse great teachings through the ages. This book is open and accessible and rings of authenticity. It deserves careful heart reading by those who wish to find the bridge to human flourishing in our global age.”
— Dr. Ashok Gangadean, Author of Awakening Global Mind and Awakening Global Enlightenment: Our Maturation as a Species

“I highly recommend The Rainbow Bridge to everyone who cares about living meaningfully and making a difference in our troubled world. It is an inspiring book, focusing on important universal principles. At one level it is a book about our shared experiences of living, dying and dreaming. At another level, it is a book about responsibility for ourselves, each other and the world. The Rainbow Bridge is filled with hope and simple wisdom in the tradition of Lao Tzu that one can return to again and again.”

“The world is waking up to what Brent Hunter has been saying for a decade. The new planetary era we are co-creating must be infused with wisdom – wisdom which is the foundation of most spiritual approaches today. You will love the quotes that run throughout the entire book. It occurred to me that this would make a great book to put by your bedside so that you could thumb through and read and reflect on the wisdom of each page. Hunter brings us up to the current era by, including such newly formed movements as the global commons and offers a living path to a meaningful and purposeful life within the challenges of the 21st century.”

Connecting what we can be as a civilization with who we are as a complex and varied people is the bridge work that will allow us to live into our roles as agents of love and peace.

“Diversity in religion, spirituality and culture is an unqualified good for humanity. Gandhi said in his time that ‘The friendly study of other religions is the sacred duty of each one of us’. Now more than ever we need to become experts of the major traditions of spirituality and religion. To do so will allow our collective understanding to see the common ground we all stand on in our various faiths. Brent Hunter is a person with a mission to spread the acceptance of pluralism around the world. His book, The Rainbow Bridge, is a gem reflecting rays of wisdom from all the traditions of the religions, pointing to the common ground among us. We must learn to be comfortable on this bridge because it is our future.”
— The late Dr. Brother Wayne Teasdale, author of The Mystic Heart: Discovering a Universal Spirituality in the World’s Religions
“The Rainbow Bridge is a beautiful vision and a practical set of principles and practices to realize what His Holiness the Dalai Lama likes to call for, “World Peace Through Inner Peace!” Great thanks to Brent Hunter! It can be envisioned, enjoyed and crossed over by anyone, whatever their religion or non-religion, if they just trust their own imaginations, and let themselves embrace the positive. I recommend The Rainbow Bridge to myself and to all of you, safe and sound always as it gently and blissfully arches through our inmost hearts.”
— Dr. Robert Thurman, President of Tibet House US, prolific author and speaker
