    PDF [Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief] It started out as juicy and focussed and I enjoyed it very much until the author began to simply rewrite what has been written many times before Lash went from objective pagan and academic to writing about theist characters as though they had credence His criticism lost me there It's as though he became tired It's difficult to maintain I realise in a world that andocentrises its mysteries and then talks about them as tho

    PDF [Not in His Image: Gnostic Vision, Sacred Ecology, and the Future of Belief] An anti Christian polemic a scholarly study of the beliefs and cosmology of the Nag Hammadi era Gnostics and a clarion call towards gnosticism in it's truest sense for our modern world this book astonished me while it moved and inspired me to study what Gnosticism truly was It goes beyond trying to show that Christians were a uaint varied lot like many modern popular writers try to do like Elaine Pagels and Kar

John Lamb Lash » 8 Summary

There are lenty of ideas to "PONDER AND WONDER ABOUT I WOUND "and wonder about I wound only giving 3 stars because of the ainful jumps in ideas and subjects that must have made sense to the author but truly made my brain hurt trying to follow along Other members of my book group said the same thing But the book does have observations that made me change my oint of view and reevaluate long thing But the book does have observations that made me change my oint of view and reevaluate long beliefs I like that An anti Christian olemic a scholarly study of the beliefs and cosmology of the Nag Hammadi era Gnostics and a clarion call towards gnosticism in it s truest sense for our modern world this book astonished me while it moved and inspired me to study what Gnosticism truly was It goes beyond trying to show that Christians were a uaint varied lot like many modern opular writers try to do like Elaine Pagels and Karen Armstrong Instead John Lash SHOWS THAT THE GNOSTICS AND THE REST OF THE that the Gnostics and the rest of the Christian world were at bitter ends with Gnosticism turning into the underground foundation of our modern society despite the best efforts of organized religion to stamp it out A fascinating read inspiring and shocking like few books I ve read This is the uintessential book that must be read by anyone who reviously or resently has espoused the Abrahamic religions JudaismChristiantyIslam The author is the most learned scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls the Nag Hammadi Codices and other Coptic texts he shares with us the true meaning contained in these textual materialsThe trends humankind currently follow will be completely dissected and analyzed and exposes what has been kept hidden from view in order that we may discern folly from truth Ultimately our attention is directed towards true Gnosticism and not some diluted christianified version of it Anyone seeking self awarenessenlightenment ought to give this a good study even if only to closely examine those ideals you re holding.
