Overview

Annie Besant was one of the great female reformers of the early twentieth century, striving for women's and workers' rights at a time when both were considered 'inappropriate' for a well-brought-up young lady. Following a chance request to review Madame Blavatsky's 'The Secret Doctrine', Besant added esoteric research and practice to her many accomplishments, rising to a high position in the Theosophical Society, and eventually taking on the mantle of spiritual leader after Madame Blavatsky's death in 1891
In 'Esoteric Christianity' Besant explores the hidden teachings that - as with other religions - lie behind the 'public face' of orthodox Christianity. The author shows that Christianity's priestly leaders have long repudiated these esoteric principles. She examines the personality of Christ in terms of its Mythic and Mystic components, and reveals the different levels of meaning inherent in such Christian concepts as The Sacraments, The Trinity, Atonement, The Resurrection, and The Forgiveness of Sins. A deep and wonderfully insightful attempt to reconstruct the inner, esoteric teachings of early Christianity.

Not just another regurgitation of generral concepts. Besant has never really been on my radar beyond the haunting of her old lodge in Los Angelas, but some of her personal insight contained within this light read are up there with tthe likes of Steiner. This was worth the purchase and a treat to read during my commute.
