    A Great Introduction to the Works of Jacob Boehme

    Jacob Boehme, the humble shoemaker from Görlitz went on to inspire great poets such as William Blake. Boehme attracted criticism throughout his life from the religious establishment and posthumously from those who decried his lack of formal education. However the importance of his work should not be underestimated and in many ways his lack of formal education gives him a profound insight not found in many of his contemporaries. This book edited by Robin Waterfield offers excerpts from some of his main works and provides a means to learn about Boehme without the need to grapple with his more difficult works such as Aurora and The Way to Christ. Boehme was devoutly Christian and offers an esoteric interpretation of Christianity, preferring to focus on imitating Christ rather than arguing about theological issues. This book can still offer insight to Christians today and those generally interested in esotericism. Certainly worth reading and Waterfield¿s expertise on Boehme is invaluable to grasp the key themes.
