Publisher's Summary

This book covers four distinct areas concerning the life and teachings of Jesus Christ:

1. An interview with the late Charan Singh, spiritual head of Radhasoami Satsang Beas, conducted by a group of fundamentalist Christians. Charan provides a detailed explanation for why he believes Jesus was a mystic-yogi. 2. An excerpt from Dr. Andrea Diem's pioneering work on early Gnosticism and its connection to Indian mysticism. 3. A complete translation of the Gospel of Thomas by Mark M. Mattison. 4. A radical new interpretation of Christianity based on a deep and horizontal reading of the four Gospels in the New Testament, focusing on the humanity of Mary Magdalene and her unconditional love.

This book taken as a whole provides a new way of looking at Jesus and early Christianity.

[Brackets]

I love this book, it is quick and very helpful.

Every time brackets occur, the reader says the word "brackets" in the same monotonous tone. I had to stop many times just like 50 shades of grey. Remember the email exchanges where the reader thought it was necessary to read dates, times, subjects, re subjects, re re re re subjects? Yes...

Everything else was great and verifies a lot of my personal gnostic study.

I Finished Listening

But, I found no surprises. Fact is, it conformed so well with my own beliefs that it became predictable — so, I am not the best judge. However, if you are a devout Christian, I will not encourage you as this book will most likely undermine your faith. Well, that may not be such a bad thing because it will also open a new line of study. I will recommend looking at DAVID FITZGERALD. At least he details the fact from fiction (myths) surrounding the origins of Jesus.
