Woodstock VT: Skylight Paths Publishing, 2015. Third Printing. Softcover. Octavo. xvi + 166pp. + publisher's catalog. B&w illustrations, suggested reading list. From the publisher: "The Secret Book of John: The Gnostic Gospel Annotated & Explained decodes the principal themes, historical foundation, and spiritual contexts of this challenging yet fundamental Gnostic teaching. Drawing connections to Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, kabbalistic Judaism, and Sufism, Davies focuses on the mythology and psychology of the Gnostic religious quest. He illuminates the Gnostics' ardent call for self-awareness and introspection, and the empowering message that divine wholeness will be restored not by worshiping false gods in an illusory material world but by our recognition of the inherent divinity within ourselves." A little light rubbing to covers and edges otherwise a tight, clean VG+ copy. Item #58129
