Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uniting Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, this book teaches how early mystics--including Jesus--may have meditated in the three great religions springing from the Middle East. World-renowned religion scholar Neil Douglas-Klotz finds that all three faiths, in spite of differences, share an emphasis on the story of creation and sacred beginnings.

Synopsis:

This book teaches how Jesus actually may have meditated and recreates the step-by-step examples the reader can follow.

Synopsis:

This book teaches step-by-step how early practitioners may have meditated in all three religions springing from the Middle East. Based on translations from Jesus' native language, Aramaic, Neil Douglas-Klotz links Jesus' own way of meditating to that of early Jewish and Islamic mystics. What he finds is a shared focus on sacred "beginnings" rather than on apocalyptic "endings." As he says: "This original meditation lies behind the Christians' awe at the rebirth of the Christ Child each midwinter. It fuels the heartfelt hope of Jews in the New Year celebraations of Rosh Hashana. And it roots the devotion of Muslims each year during the fast of Ramadan. These are all celebrations of hope, not fear, and of love, not hatred. By experiencing the creation story as our own, we have the same opportunity to renew ourselves and to deepen our connection with the Divine every day." We also experience the one meditative practice that might unite our Christian, Judaic, and Islamic communities in a troubled world.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 239-250) and index.

Carol Klavon, July 30, 2008 (view all comments by Carol Klavon)
I have only just begun reading this book, the second one I have read by this author, and am very impressed with what I have seen so far. The history of the "Genesis Meditation" (as Douglas-Klotz calls it) is more a labour of love, rather than a simple informational narrative. Simple, elegant, beautiful...
