A good read but needed more research
I enjoyed the book and what had to say about the history of religious literalism and Gnostic philosophy. I especially liked what it had to say about waking up to 'Big Love' and how this could become Global spirituallity. Gnosticism is beginning to be looked at under a new microscope due to psycological research as a truer spirituality/psychology. The ancients seemed to have known more than we thought they did and I can see how this could be a threat to current religious establishments. However, the authors could have done more research and could have taken a look at Nicolas Nicovitch's book, The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ, instead of flat out saying that Jesus was just a myth and the 'most famous man who never lived.' From new evidence discovered in India it seems that Jesus did live and was what the New Testament claims him to be but did actually teach a form of Gnostisism. Well, I do agree with the authors in the idea that the world does need to wake up with eyes of love and forgive our enemies and love our neighbors as ourself.Was this review helpful?
