    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Inner Christianity to be better than the print version?

    I have over 300 audio books in my Audible library and this is the first book that compelled me to write a review. It continues to hold my interest and is a great balance of scholarship and modern language. There is substance for the experienced adept as well as the uninitiated. There are so many outstanding attributes contained in this audio book, that I also purchased and read the paperback and buy copies for friends and fellow esoteric students. Give this well researched and written gift to yourself.

    Does a sinister cabal actually control international affairs? Were William Shakespeare and Abraham Lincoln secretly involved with a group founded to discover and preserve the principles of alchemy? Has an ancient mystical religion really been reduced to a length of red string that sells for a dollar an inch? Secret societies surround us, yet they often remain a mystery. Their secrecy suggests sacrilege and crime, and their loyalties stand accused of undermining the world's governments. They generate fear, suspicion, and - above all - fascination.

    Story

    I really wanted this book to be good but is more fantasy and sensationalism than anything resembling factual. The author did a poor job of researching or fact checking; I doubt he made any effort at all. It seems like a series of fictional accounts with a few less important facts thrown in to try to add credibility.
    This book lacks substance, truth or correct information.
    Save your money; I wish I had.
