    A must read for the theology student.

    You'll never look at religion or the stars the same way ever again. Copiously footnoted, the writers have thoroughly and tirelessly provided all the sources needed to back up their work. They point the reader to many sources for further research. It's pleasing to see John Marco Allegro finally getting some of the recognition he and his work richly deserves.

    CAUTION: READING THIS BOOK WILL CHANGE YOUR MIND (in an amazing way)

    ¿Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty.¿ William Blake would most certainly appreciate the artful expression and delectable composition that this work represents. What do Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sun Worship, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny have in Common with Terrence McKenna¿s elves, John Allegro¿s Dead Sea Scroll translations, Manly P. Hall¿s Secret Teachings of All Ages , Dr. Rick Strassman¿s (DMT) Spirit Molecule research, Gordon Wasson¿s Soma, and Michael Talbot¿s Holographic Universe? This book. However, it¿s not just a book- it¿s a paradigm-amending exploration superimposed over our perceptions of everyday reality. When you pick up this book and peruse its content, you will inevitably draw your own unique value as the data assembled within its pages has universal and timeless appeal. Whether you are still searching for the answers to the questions you had back in Sunday School, or you are a fellow Traveler seeking the lesser-known tethers that bring these Beautiful Minds and their life works together into a simple yet infinitely detailed line of thought- Astrotheology and Shamanism is Your guide on the path to attaining the quintessential transcendental understanding, which we all innately seek. In two words- ¿Thought Provoking¿. In three words- ¿Lubrication for Thought¿. It¿s what we always hope for and this book delivered. If you¿re still only considering this book you happen to be looking at one of the most comprehensive, novel, and expertly organized resources on the planet- the details bring to life Life itself. ¿If the Truth can be told so as to be Understood, it will be Believed.¿ When Terence McKenna spoke those words, he possibly had a book like this in mind, as Astrotheology and Shamanism is the definitive contemporary standard intermeshing some of the most interestingly novel and (until now) misunderstood information about our world and the origins of our belief systems. If consumed with an open mind and allowed to marinate in the correlations consumption of this body of work will lead any reader to the answers they seek in life, and ultimately, after life. Having studied many of the same sources listed in Astrotheology and Shamanism in our own research and archival efforts, this book offers a refreshingly real and honest look from a perspective which allows the reader to see all sides at once it¿s akin to the ¿Teacher¿s Edition¿ for Life and all of the minutia and ideology that we swim in everyday. In brief, Irvin and Rutajit have managed to locate, verify, document, organize, articulate, publish and distribute a message that has been lost in translation and categorically suppressed for some 2000 years perhaps the return of this suppressed information to the Public Mind will create an environment where our common ancient pasts provide us with the understanding necessary to unify seemingly diverse and irreconcilable belief systems. Some scholars understand that the return of this information to the Public Mind is the fulfillment of the allegorical Christ returning as promised. (Temet Nosce- to know thyself) Irvin and Rutajit have climbed the ladder to stand on the shoulders of giants to present this Chief Cornerstone of Anthropological Research. It¿s inspiring to see a team of writers collaborating with such a level-headed and genuine respect for assembling and sharing this information. The aggregated potential of this concise and proficiently explained introduction, and the exceedingly documented window it provides into our shared experience (oroborotically connecting the origins and the futures of humankind), in terms of relative global causality, is nothing short of tectonic. The Authors¿ distill these ideas and concepts without losing the essence or compromising the integrity of the sacramental expressions, all while confined to the 26 letters in the English language in our reading, no author or team of authors has presented information

    The GOD we have been SOLD is a placebo!!!!

    If your faith is based on anything but personal experience of the mystery .... be warned. These are not just cute stories containing clever metaphors to guide our personal behavior.... they are recipes for true communion with god. an experience that cannot be explained or understood..... simply felt!! please join us in basking in the eternal light of the mystery .... only by breaking the damn of judgement will the waters of knowledge flow through you. The authors join a long line of researchers that have been inspired to place true knowledge and it's release before their own personal gain. our eternal gratitude to these brave souls namaste'

    pseudo-research for 'alternative thinkers'

    This book is full of fascinating and seemingly world-changing ideas, but unfortunately they are backed up with poor research, faulty logic, and way too much agenda. There are almost no primary sources here, the sources that are given do not usually list primary sources, and most sources are not subject to peer-review in any sense...they are books of popular writing, not academic. This book is for people who like to feel they are in on the big secret, but who don't care much for accuracy or checking sources.
