I found this book very inspiring, informative and well researched. The way this book approaches the contrasting views of materialism VS the idealism in relation to religious beliefs and mysticism as recorded in dogma, myth and legend. I loved this book and recommend it to any one with a passion for history, free thinking, phychology, philosophy and religious beliefs.
See a Problem?
For a man apparently so knowledgeable about the history of all things incorporeal, the author is strikingly uncritical of the historical anecdotes that he presents as fact. Every story is taken at face value. A being appears to an individual - it must be an angel, and every word it speaks is God's truth!
Surely our spiritual cousins should be subjected to the same rigourous analysis of motivation etc. And who, indeed, is this being claiming to be God? In a field now so ripe with excellent material from enquiring minds, this book with its unquestioning, unexplorative portrayal of standard religious history comes across as either spectactulary naive - or, possibly, as the tool of a disinformation agenda.
