Overview

A long time ago Christians believed in reincarnation.

This groundbreaking work makes the case that Jesus taught reincarnation. Elizabeth Clare Prophet 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, she 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.

This book in an interesting study of the role that reincarnation may have played in the teachings of early Christianity. I felt that the early chapters of the book were informative, and discussed facts and strong probabilities based on available documents and evidence. Towards the end, the author seemed to veer into sharing a lot of her own beliefs and the philosophies she teaches. It has long been speculated about the original Church’s view of reincarnation. Some feel that specific verses suggest Jesus believed in reincarnation and taught about it. It is a very interesting topic to consider and study. I think anyone interested in this subject matter will enjoy this book. Michael Travis Jasper, Author of the Novel “To Be Chosen”

When I read this book in 2001, it was my first exposure to the concept of reincarnation. At the time, I was steeped in a Christian belief system that did not allow for open-minded thinking of such things as explained in this book. But, I was searching because I had sadly began to realize that I had been disillusioned by the fear-based dogma of the churches I had been attending. This book opened my eyes and introduced me to new ways of thinking and I have continued to search for truth wherever it exists for me ever since. I appreciate this book because it helped me move forward on my spiritual path and accept other people's beliefs without judgment.

I'm glad I found this book for my research. Truly helps the understanding of what many will not accept. Perhaps with the help of KS. Michaels and Elizabeth Clare Prophet many more will be reunited with Christ.

This is a truly wonderful book! This is the book I'd been searching for in the 7 years I've been a reincarnationist! It's really helped me and my relationship with God, too. I've always wondered what happened to the doctrine and why most Christians won't accept it. Prophet is awesome!
