During the 30 years he spent at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Kingsley Guy was known for his quest for accuracy and his trenchant skepticism. He was, in short, perhaps the last person one might expect to conclude that there are worlds we cannot see and intelligent entities guiding our lives.
But in his new memoir, Piercing the Veil: A Skeptical Journalist Discovers Unseen Worlds (TTLHarmony Publishing), released Aug. 6, Kingsley uses his storytelling prowess to shed light on the many events he experienced that caused him to believe that God, guardian angels, and spirit guides are every bit as real as the newsmakers and celebrities he once interviewed. For example, he writes about the odd sensation he had the night his mother committed suicide thousands of miles away and other inexplicable events he experienced that turned him from a depressed and alcoholic skeptic into a sober spiritual seeker.
In an interview, this former editorial page editor and frequent radio and television guest can answer such questions as:
- What are some of the most bizarre “coincidences” you experienced?
- How can other people come to know, rather than believe, that unseen worlds exist?
- What do former colleagues think of his transformation?
- Are science and spirituality two different disciplines or can they be one?
- What is his connection to Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, and why did his daughter write the foreword for Piercing the Veil?
