Synopsis: For Paul Ferrini, there was a time when the very thought of Jesus left him cold. Instead of embodying the truth of Jesus' teaching, Christianity seemed to harbor the fearful thoughts and actions of people who were more committed to self-interest than to unconditional love. So when Ferrini felt Jesus' voice inside him saying, "I want you to acknowledge me," he resisted. In time, however, he came to realize that it was not Jesus he was rejecting but the untruths that had become attached to Christian teaching. Responding to the inner voice did not mean merely acknowledging Jesus as some great teacher who lived in the past, but also meant that he was opening himself up to a living presence within his own awareness. Once Ferrini reached this reconciliation, powerful words of spiritual truth began to flow through him.
Reflections of the Christ Mind presents the most important teachings the author has received through his spiritual awakening. Here at last is a gospel devoted solely to Jesus' teachings of love, healing, and forgiveness. The teacher readers meet in these pages is both compassionate and open-minded-he is the Jesus Christians know in their hearts. Repudiating religious hypocrisy, intolerance, and spiritual pride, Ferrini rejects the dogmatic position of the Church, offering instead words of hope and healing that form the new gospel for today.
Review: Growing up in an atheist household, Paul Ferrini believed that Christ represented a religion dedicated to untruths, brutality, and self-interest. Then at the age of 23 Ferrini had an epiphany that forever changed his approach to Christ. "It took me awhile to realize he was not responsible for the lies or acts of cruelty," Ferrini writes in the preface to the book. "He was responsible only for what he thought, what he said, and what he did." In this vein, Ferrini has written the highly successful Reflections of the Christ Mind series (which includes Love Without Conditions and The Silence of the Heart), in which he represents Christ's voice and thoughts as if Jesus were speaking directly to the reader.
Rather than channeling, Ferrini explains that he connects with the "Christ mind" and writes what comes to him--a form of communion that anyone is capable of. The first-person tone of the teachings is intimate and inviting. Each reflection is about a paragraph or two long, so it can be relished in small bites. This collection of previously published material reads like a greatest hits album, with Ferrini offering his all-time favorite Christ mind reflections. --Gail Hudson
