Publisher's summary

Twenty centuries have passed since Jesus first spoke of a glorious "kingdom" at hand. And yet for theologians as well as everyday seekers, the question remains: What can we do to realize the full promise of Christianity for ourselves and for our world? The answer, teaches Andrew Harvey, lies with the Christian mystics who used the life of Jesus as a spiritual template to become "like a sun, the source of abundant life, whose waves incessantly wash, infuse, and purify the cosmos".

In Radiant Heart, this scholar, teacher, and best-selling author illuminates the direct path to Christ and the unlimited and all-transforming source of power that it offers to each one of us today, whatever path we are on. Beginning with an investigation into the original practices of Jesus and ending with a series of transformative meditations for opening to the power of Christ consciousness, Radiant Heart invites us to look beyond nearly 2,000 years of dogma and distortion to see the full glory of the Christ path as it was traveled by Jesus and history's most influential saints and mystics. In 12 detailed and compelling audio sessions, Harvey offers a map for entering and experiencing the thresholds and mysteries of Christ's life through contemplations developed over centuries of inner experience. From the first practices of the ancient Desert Fathers and Mothers to insights into the Cosmic Mary and sacred androgyny to modern examples of Christed beings, including Thomas Merton and Bede Griffiths, Harvey examines what happens when we respond to Christ's challenge and open to the spirit of radiance residing within. Here for the first time, in Andrew Harvey's own words, is a full-length curriculum of meditations, prayers, and practices for plunging into "the living flame of love" (St. John of the Cross) and walking this path of revelation, power, and wonder.

Any additional comments?

This guy is all about suffering, sadness and loneliness on the path to Christ Consciousness. I could not stand to listen to it but for an hour or so. I don't feel bad for him; he'll work his way through it eventually. If you feel like you have to suffer your way into Heaven then this book is for you :)

Christian Dharma Expertly Transmitted

What an incredible teaching and sharing of experience. Andrew Harvey transmitted the cosmic Christ’s bliss and beauty magnificently with his words. Narration settled down in later chapters and became less a distraction and more a support of the power of the message. Highly recommend for all, but especially us lost Christians who have been looking for this Christ while on Buddhist paths.
