I needed to find a way to reconcile my disagreements and, at times, loathing for this male-based religion that typically degrades women and perpetuates an intolerant view of humanity. I found that in your book. I can live with the idea that the mythical god-man and his teachings can show any human how to live a better life. I constantly remind myself while in Church that the information is not literal, and should be embraced as a general concept. Thank you.
i recently re-read the jesus mysteries and as a lapsed roman catholic with a quest for knowledge found the book fascinating.
i'm on page 181 and it is the best peice of literiture that conforms to my way of the world/creation i have ever read!! cheers for the reason to believe!
Thank you for writing this book. I don't think there will ever be peace on earth until people investigate the true Gnosis and not just blindly accept the literalist interpretation of spiritual matters. I am definately looking forward to reading your next book. Just remember, there are millions of people who are asking these same questions. Thanks for assisting us in our quest
The Jesus Mysteries was the best book we've ever bought. Looking forward to your new one!
To Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, if there is any possible way of their getting this small message: Thank you. Know, if nothing else, that at least one person got the message from the Jesus Mysteries. Peace.
