Dear Reader, Love Rev. Dr. Leonidas A. Johnson

Dear Reader…

Life is full of ups and downs. At the end of the day, after all is said and done, it would be nice if, on the scales of life, the ups outweigh the downs. I’ve made a wonderful discovery. I‘ve discovered something about vision that allows me to guarantee to you that you can live a phenomenal life and at the end of the day, after all is said and done, that your life’s ups will outweigh the downs.

This is why I wrote this book. I believe I have discovered something about vision that will help you view yourself and the world God created more clearly and in a new light. This new way of looking at yourself and the world can help you live a more fulfilling, more productive, a more exciting, and more meaningful life. It will also help you develop a strong decision-making strategy that can impact the different paths you take in life. It is hard to make good decisions in life if you cannot see the factors influencing the decisions you make.

I am a licensed optometrist and a third-generation preacher. I’ve spent a lifetime helping people to see. Vision is what I know, vision is what I do and I want to help you see more clearly.

Vision, what is it? Vision is a physical, mental and spiritual phenomena of enlightenment. What I have discovered is that physical vision is very similar to spiritual vision and the mind is the bridge between the two. By using a process called learning by comparison, I will teach you certain aspects about physical vision and use that information to help you compare physical vision with spiritual vision. This process can lead you to a sight of life that produces phenomenal results.

With the way the things are going in the world I believe it is critical that more and more people become aware of the importance of spiritual vision. I encourage people of all races, tribes, nations and languages to invest in improving not only their natural vision but their spiritual vision and overall spiritual health and wellbeing. 

Next to life itself, God’s greatest gift is vision - the window to this mysterious thing called life!

About the Book

“I’ve spent my life helping people to see, both as a licensed optometrist and also as an ordained minister,” said author Rev. Dr. Leonidas Johnson. “Vision, what is it? I discovered that physical vision is very similar to spiritual vision and the mind is the bridge between the two.”

In Rev. Dr. Johnson’s book, readers will experience a concept called learning by comparison. Comparing physical vision with spiritual vision will help the readers see themselves and the world God created in a whole new light. Readers will see the world God created from a physical, mental, and spiritual vantage point that will enrich their lives, Rev. Dr. Johnson says. These vantage points help build a foundation for developing a decision-making strategy that is both liberating and biblically sound.

Rev. Dr. Johnson went on to say “The title of my book – – Phenomenal Vision: Eyesight To Life Sight – – came after contemplating the impact vision has on one’s life, not just physical but eternal. It leans into the concept of one’s worldview. A proper view of oneself and the world can deeply impact the outcome of one’s life. Jesus said I come that might have life and have it more abundantly. How can you see physical beauty if you are physically blind? Conversely, how can you have an abundant life if you are spiritually blind?  Vision should never be taken for granted and vision that incorporates physical, mental and spiritual vantage points is not ordinary but phenomenal and lead to a phenomenal life.”


I just read Phenomenal Vision Eyesight to Life Sight by Rev. Dr. Leonidas A. Johnson.  It is a delightful book written thoughtfully.  He linked the physical aspects of vision with the metaphysical aspects of vision in a creative way.  I share a common perspective as Rev. Dr. Johnson because I am also an Optometrist and a Christian minister.  He has captured both the physical science of vision and the metaphysical science of vision.  I am confident that there will be “aha moments” for readers who may not have a foot in either area.

This author so wonderfully explained the spiritual nature of vision.  His linking of disorders or disease to both the physical and spiritual makes it easy for the reader to “get it.”  His use of graphs, diagrams, pictures, and charts is also very creative.  Often books are “dumbed down” and don’t trust the intellect of the reader.  This book soars in bringing light to something that has often been opaque.  This book is a must-read.  It will be a blessing for those who desire to have a more in-depth understanding of the link between the physical and metaphysical aspects of life.

— Rev. Dr. Clyde W. Oden, Jr.

The title of this book, Phenomenal Vision: Eyesight to Life Sight, written by Rev. Dr. Leonidas A. Johnson, is one that entices the reader’s curiosity towards further exploration of its content. The author is an Optometrist and an Ordained Minister, therefore, this book is a valuable resource for various professional and religious environments, i.e. universities, colleges, seminaries, along with local churches for both clergy and laity. It is an insightful reference for readers interested in the relationship between eyesight and life sight. In other words, the reader will gain a wealth of knowledge concerning physical, mental and spiritual vision.

Rev. Dr. Johnson presents a thorough explanation regarding the connection between the mind, body, spirit and soul. His approach is holistic as he delves into the medical terminology towards understanding physical vision and creatively references biblical scriptures and stories to engage the reader in components of spiritual vision. Furthermore, Rev. Dr. Johnson has included several graphics, i.e. diagrams, charts and pictures to assist the reader “to see” and comprehend the three major areas emphasized in the text: 1.) inter-relatedness of physical vision, 2.) mental vision cognitive, and 3.) spiritual vision.

It is evident that the author has a passion for the love of God and God’s people as he reveals the depths of his knowledge, research, spirituality and life experiences as an Optometrist and Minister of the Gospel. Rev. Dr. Leonidas Johnson has written a phenomenal book that is a true treasure as each written page is most enlightening!

–Rev. Dr. Venus L. Butler, Associate Minister, Second Baptist Church, Los Angeles

Optometry is a calling. We safeguard one of Life’s most precious senses. Rev. Dr. Johnson captures the connection between seeing and vision that goes beyond the light energy entering the pupil, blessing the spirits fortunate enough to be in his care.
