Review:

Andrew Harvey's Son of Man: The Mystical Path to Christ is a strange and wonderful book about learning to become like Jesus. Harvey, a scholar, poet, novelist, and translator (he's perhaps best known for helping incite a resurgence of interest in the 12th-century Turkish poet Rumi), draws on his extensive knowledge and experience of Christian and Eastern spiritual practices to create a profound and wide-ranging meditation on who Jesus was and why Jesus matters today. The connection between this book's beginning (a summary of historical-Jesus research) and its end (a series of meditations to help believers grow more Christ-like) is perhaps best summarized by the following passage, which also conveys the sweeping momentum of Harvey's prose:

Paying attention to how Jesus acted and in what context and to what he really said--and not on the dogmas surrounding his divinity--can have the paradoxical effect of making us take him and his actions and words even more seriously and, above all, and in the highest, most urgent sense, practically.
Son of Man is also profusely illustrated with haunting black-and-white photographs by Harvey's partner, Eryk Hanut. --Michael Joseph Gross

Book Description:

Designed as both a practical guide and a call to action -- and taught by Andrew Harvey himself -- the Son of Man audio edition brings to life a revolutionary vision of the historical Jesus that is intended to transform the sacred imagination of the world. Harvey builds a cathedral of words and invites us inside, where we discover spiritual riches that have been left unclaimed for 2,000 years. While sharing new research into the original gospel as Jesus taught it, Andrew Harvey examines centuries of distortions, bringing into new focus the most treasured gems of the entire Christian mystical tradition. What emerges from this myth-cleansing process and restoration in no way diminishes Jesus, but instead presents him as a mystical, political, radical revolutionary of infinite importance to the human race. Divided into four challenging sections, Son of Man covers: The historical Jesus and his radical path -- The four stages of the mystical path to Christhood -- Christ the sacred androgyne as the embodiment of the divine feminine -- Practices and meditations for the direct path to Christ. Now it can be told: the one story that is far richer and more compelling to our spirits than the story of the Son of God -- and that is Andrew Harvey's Son of Man.
