    Theology for the Spiritual Humanist

    I grew up in a totally secular Jewish home, and have always felt far more connected to the panreligious humanism explored by Joseph Campbell in his books and lectures than I ever did with the Torah. Or with Christianity, certainly. SO this book really opened my eyes to the spiritual symbols that I grew up with--with their greater mythic meanings. What a beautiful book!

    Thou Art What Connects Us All

    Joseph Campbell, the foremost authority on mythology, shows us that symbolism is the key to understanding and experiencing religious mystery. Along the way he criticizes the clergy for not enlightening followers to this fact, and more significantly he shares his own interpretation of many Judeo-Christian symbols. I especially enjoyed the last chapter titled 'Question Period.' It is a collection of Campbell's responses to various questions taken after many of his lectures over the years. He seems to shine in this type of forum and demonstrates a depth of knowledge and a clarity that sometimes gets buried in the preceding chapters. The Appendix is a reprint of 'Earthrise - The Dawning of a New Spiritual Awareness,' which was a Campbell interview that appeared Easter 1979 in the New York Times Magazine. Chapter notes, a bibliography, and an index are also included in this wonderful little book.
