Vernon Linwood Howard 1918 – 1992
Vernon Howard was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts on March 16, 1918. When he was a boy his family moved to California where he lived for many years. He began writing and lecturing there on spiritual and psychological topics. He eventually moved from Los Angeles to Boulder City, Nevada where he lived and taught for many years. In 1979 he founded New Life Church and Literary Foundation.
From 1965 until his death in 1992 he wrote books and conducted classes which reflect a degree of skill and understanding that may be unsurpassed in modern history. Human Behavior Magazine once said of him, “Vernon Howard is probably the clearest writer on these subjects in the English language.”
His warmth and refreshing sense of humor made him a delightful subject for interviews, talk shows and articles. In 1983 Michael Benner of station KLOS in Los Angeles, California said, “Vernon Howard is one of the most powerful speakers I have ever interviewed. He has an uncanny ability to cut through the fluff and puff and jolt people into seeing who they really are. At times humorous and gentle, at other times demanding and forceful, Vernon Howard holds the record for generating responses to our KLOS talk shows. Not everyone likes his message, but I can’t imagine anyone turning him off.”
Vernon Howard broke through to another world. He saw through the illusion of suffering and fear and loneliness. In The Esoteric Path to a New Life tape album there is a marvelous interview with Vernon Howard. Also included in this album is the booklet of the same name which will give any new student a great introduction to Vernon Howard’s works.
Today more than 8 million readers worldwide enjoy his exceptionally clear and inspiring presentations of the great truths of the ages. Libraries, bookstores, health food stores and church bookshops all over the country sell Vernon Howard books, booklets, cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs and much more. His material is widely used by doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, clergymen, counselors, educators and people from all walks of life.
All his teachings center around one grand theme: “There is a way out of the human problem and anyone can find it.”
