From the Back Cover:

How much of the New Testament gospel story is true?

This is the stunning question posed--and answered--in this provocative volume, first published in 1903 and just as startling today as it must have been a century ago. Mead, considered one of the greatest thinkers on the origins of Christianity and a renowned expert on Gnostic and Hermetic literature, considers the story of Jesus from a theosophical outlook, one that embraces the unifying, enlightening philosophies that underlie all religions. His explorations of the unclear boundaries between history and myth--and how they affect the modern Judeo-Christian traditions, practices, and beliefs--is a thoroughly humanistic one of immense value today, as we struggle to balance faith with secularism in our society.

Also available from Cosimo Classics: Mead's The Hymn of Jesus and The Doctrine of the Subtle Body in Western Tradition.

About the Author:

G. R. S. Mead is regarded as a pioneer in the field of Gnostic and Hermetic studies. A highly intuitive scholar, Mead joined the company of Madame Blavatsky and her close associates. In this circle, he learned the profound mysteries of the Gnostics and became a translator of these writings. Mead evidently suffered some scholarly prejudice because of his connections with Theosophy. However, he also visited with C. G. Jung during his last years, and Jung thanked him for his dedicated work, his outstanding use of the English language, and for his affinity toward the experience of Gnosis.
