Book Description

First published in 1980, The Christian Mystery presents a new approach to considering the Mysteries of the Faith.

The book examines the doctrines of Christianity, analysing them closely and showing how together they constitute an invisible whole. It argues that churches should turn back to the esoteric teachings known by the first Christians and explores how Christianity has developed the primal Tradition of which Jesus was Representative.

The Christian Mystery will appeal to those with an interest in theology, the philosophy of religion, and the history of Christianity.
