A long time ago Christians believed in reincarnation

“This is an extremely important book, a book providing profound insight and truth, a book which will open minds and remove fears.” —Brian Weiss, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Many Lives, Many Masters

This groundbreaking work makes the case that Jesus taught reincarnation and traces the history of reincarnation in Christianity—from Jesus and early Christians through Church councils and the persecution of so-called heretics. Using the latest scholarship and evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic texts, it also argues persuasively that Jesus was a mystic who taught that our destiny is to unite with the God within. Your view of Jesus—and of Christianity—will never be the same.

“Imaginative and provocative.... Elizabeth Clare Prophet's assertion that not only mystical Gnostics but also a Jewish wisdom teacher like Jesus taught reincarnation is sure to rattle your karmic chain.” —Marvin Meyer, author of The Gospel of Thomas: The Hidden Sayings of Jesus
