    Definitively read by author Richard Smoley, this audio version of Inner Christianity brings a clear understanding to the listener of the complex universe of esoteric knowledge. Topics include esoteric orders past and present, inner traditions, Sophia and Mary, and Gnosticism, as well as well as the mystical body of Christ.

    Overall

    Smoley takes on the daunting and laudable task of examining the intersection of esoterica and exoteric praxis within Christianity. Unfortunately, he has done only damage to the topic. The most notable failure for Smoley is not his breadth of knowledge concerning esoteric subjects (of which I claim no expertise with which to judge), but his impoverished understanding of Christianity and its doctrine, out of which comes an even more impoverished sense of history and sacramentality. One should not, as Smoley does, neglect to make distinctions between an orthodox Christian canon of spiritualities and anthropologies and the botched attempts by unanchored fools whose addled sense of spirituality leads to lunacy more than illumination.
