The Book of Andrew, A Past-Life Memoir
by Charles Cale Lehman
Editor: Bruce M. Gregory
Welcome to The Book of Andrew: A Past-Life Memoir.
The Round House Press is proud and grateful to be issuing one of the most influential books of recent times, and certainly the most timely. Clearly this book’s revolutionary message would have been hidden from us by the orthodoxy if found in dusty clay jars. Instead, this revelation has been unearthed from within the recovered memory of a reincarnated Apostle, through a technology of today, hypnotic regression.
Astonishing. And true.
Like a journalist sent back in time…
This is a true story.
Charles, a very young Southern child, tells his sister that he really should have been named “Andrew.” Decades later, an important early teacher of A Course in Miracles, a scholarly psychologist not given to visions, has a clairvoyant experience upon meeting Charles.
He is startled to see a name emblazoned on Charles’s forehead….
Charles goes to London and a famous psychic there tells him, “You knew Jesus.” He has extraordinary mystical experiences and informative dreams, including revelations about biblical distortions and some disciples in love with each other. Haunted by the idea that he has something important to accomplish in this life, he continues his search for the truth and has at least one experience of enlightened bliss.
Wondering if he may indeed have lived as the Apostle Andrew, he is guided to see Bruce Gregory for a brief series of hypnotic past-life regressions. Like a journalist sent back in time, Charles sees not only that he lived as Andrew, and that he and the Apostle Philip were lovers, but that Jesus blessed their union and, in effect, married them.
Understandably shaken, Charles Lehman utters a powerfully simple prayer, “If it is to be, let it be.” Shortly after, he begins to be awakened early each morning, at the time mystics say the veil between worlds is thinnest, to receive vivid memories in a flood of images, words, and emotions.
These memories constitute the main text of The Book of Andrew, an astonishing Past-Life Memoir, Witness of a Gay Apostle.
What would it take for a distinguished 93-year-old author, an expert on Christianity, to publicly state that a title is “one of the most important books I’ve ever read in my life”? The Book of Andrew has what it takes. Here is that convincing Five-Star review and another powerful, unequivocal review that are among the nearly fifty Five-Star reviews to be found on Amazon.com’s Book of Andrew page.

One of the Most Important Books I’ve Ever Read in My Life
By Amazon Customer on September 22, 2016
This is one of the most important books I’ve ever read in my life, and I am 93 years old. Reading Andrew, tears of joy fell from my face on nearly every page. I first read it all in one sitting. Now I have re-read Andrew a few more times, and it still it excites me on each reading. I really do not understand the power it has over me, but it speaks to me of my own life and to the life of others.
Andrew speaks to all — gay or straight. We are really all one and Andrew reminds us of that in strong,

A “Must Read”
By Naomi Doner, SC on September 16, 2016
I received this book two days ago and read it in a day and a half because I could NOT put it down! I am now going to read it again and tab the pages for easy reference. I have been A Course In Miracles student for twenty-five years and the parallels are unmistakable. I feel a sense of certainty, a “knowing,” that the information brought to the world in Andrew is absolutely true and authentic.
It is powerful. It is moving. I find that I now feel much closer to our elder brother, Jesus. What a joyous gift! I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
These are the words of the rediscovered Jesus, in one of The Book of Andrew’s most powerful, game-changing statements:
“I tell you this day, Andrew, that you must be born again. You will live many lives, until you have learned all the lessons you must master. You will live both as man and woman. In some lives you will love only women, in other lives, only men, and in others both women and men.
“This is true for all mortals, even your brother, Simon….In truth, those we call mortals are immortal, from everlasting to everlasting. The body in which you dwell today is but the merest shadow of your eternal soul. Seeing that in different lives the same soul may love a man or a woman, what can it matter in the eyes of God whether you love a man or woman in this life, if only you love in God’s name?”
“When he said this, my heart was filled with gladness that never left me thereafter, for I knew it was right that I should love Philip.”
