Following the extraordinary and ongoing success of his 2004 book qThe Pagan Christ, q scholar and author Tom Harpur was deluged with readers' requests to go more deeply into the mythological, allegorical approach to the story of Jesus he took in that bestselling book. In qWater Into Wine, q Harpur sets out the powerful and transforming message that emerges when the Gospels are finally read as they were originally intended to be and as they were understood by the first Christians, such as Origen and Clement. Seen in their true mythological and symbolical meaning, the stories in the drama of Jesus' life come alive in a totally fresh way--not as the account of a single, distant god-man working strange miracle like Superman or some other fictional magician, but as a description of the evolution of the soul in everyone of us. The theme of the Gospels parellels exactly the theme of the Old Testament, as well as every ancient sacred text, which is that a spark of the divine spirit incarnates in each and every human being. Tom Harpur shows how qthe old, old storyq is at the heart of every religion and how it is really our own personal story too. qWater Into Wineq is a tour de force written by a skilled and learned communicator that should excite and nourish every true seeker after spiritual fulfillment. As well, it has the enormous potential for furthering the goal of global understanding and peace.1 1 The Bhagavad-Gita a€” aquot;The Song of Godaquot; Inspired and thrilled as I was by this , to me, new body of revealed scripture, there was an even ... Published by the Vedanta Society of Southern California in 1 948, it had a fascinating introduction by one of my favourite novelists at that time, Aldous Huxley. His opening essay on the Perennial Philosophy was alone more than worth the price of the book.
