Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. When I read this book 14 years ago, I had to take my time, and savor each sentence. It took me about 4 months to read it, since I felt the need to read it slowly and to deepen and experience the wisdom that this book has to offer. It has been instrumental in my spiritual journey. I often go back to it, for inspiration and answers in my journey. I am enjoying it immensely. It is helping me to grasp God better. It's a great resource. Willigis speaks from experience, and that's what we are all seeking.

One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Thought provoking and interesting. Very heavy read unless you are a philosopher or a mystic. Others may like it but much too difficult for my taste.

I hardly ever leave a book before I finish it. I stopped reading this one after 4 chapters. The author comes off as arrogant he and people like him are the ones that have the truth, sounds like an agnostic. I stopped reading when it said that the Jesus story is a myth. It is attested by Josephus and other extra-biblical sources. A friend told me that reading it could be a challenge. Yes, but reading Hitler's manifest would also be a challenge and I choose not to read it.

A friend of mine was a student of Jager, and she started me reading him. All his books are very clear, good, helpful, but this is his magnum opus. It covers the subject very completely. It is full of encouragement. It answers many personal questions. It is truly original, and simultaneously true to all the deep spiritual traditions.

Just as my friend recommended Jager to me, I recomment him to anyone really interested in a guide for the hard path of inner work. This is a great book. This book is perhaps the clearest presentation of the perennial philosophy I've ever read. Jager successfully - no, consumately - shows the reader that the esoteric aspects of religious pursuits, the world over, are speaking of the same thing, but the exoteric aspects of religions are what separate them.

He does not argue for the melding of religions, but he makes a compelling case for religions being, in a sense, diverse cultural responses to the same transcendental experience. I very much appreciated the line he paraphrases from Karl Rahner, "Men and women of the future will be mystics, or they won't be at all. As I look at the world around me, I can't agree more. If anyone is looking for a good explanation of mysticism, they need go no further.

This is simply a spectacular book. See all 11 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published on August 21,
