Jesus and the Lost Goddess: The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians

Jesus and the Lost Goddess: The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why Were the Teachings of the Original Christians Brutally Suppressed by the Roman Church?

- Because they portray Jesus and Mary Magdalene as mythic figures based on the Pagan Godman and Goddess

- Because they show that the gospel story is a spiritual allegory encapsulating a profound philosophy that leads to mythical enlightenment

- Because they have the power to turn the world inside out and transform life into an exploration of consciousness

Drawing on modern scholarship, the authors of the international bestseller The Jesus Mysteries decode the secret teachings of the original Christians for the first time in almost two millennia and theorize about who the original Christians really were and what they actually taught. In addition, the book explores the many myths of Jesus and the Goddess and unlocks the lost secret teachings of Christian mysticism, which promise happiness and immortality to those who attain the state of Gnosis, or enlightenment. This daring and controversial book recovers the ancient wisdom of the original Christians and demonstrates its relevance to us today.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

The authors of the controversial book The Jesus Mysteries drops another bomb into the debate over the historical Jesus by describing a Goddess cult that may have exerted a seminal influence on the early Christian Church. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
