About the Author

Valentin Tomberg was born in St. Petersberg in 1900 into a Lutheran family. He entered the Russian Christian esoteric tradition at an early age, strongly influenced by Vladimir Soloviev and a personal experience of the Sophia at a Cathedral in Holland. Under the auspices of the Anthroposophical society (which he left around 1940) he lectured in Holland and England, and wrote works based on his esoteric understanding of the Bible and Christianity. He later converted to Catholicism, resided in England, and worked for the BBC while devoting his time to meditation and writing. He died in Majorca in 1973. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
One thing to keep in mind: The author of these amazing studies did not want them to be republished. They were intended for readers with a very specific knowledge and training, and this particular audience ended up rejecting, or becoming enemies over, this teaching. So, in his older days, the author felt it was just as well they be forgotten. This ought to be mentioned, as the author only was in his thirties as he was inspired to write them down. Having said that, I must confess: The study of this material has indeed brought suffering into my life as well... but a good one. Blind eyes opened to the light will burn. True insights increase true suffering. But it also increases the capacity to live with it, and even to let it soften the heart. So beware of this book. It is contaminated with truth less diluted than we are used to. Its only protection is that it presupposes a good familiarity with the works of Rudolf Steiner. This has, in the past, not proven to be enough. And the future? Well, what we can predict we cannot change. And what we can change, we cannot predict. Aristotle said that. I predict it will be said again. The path to real truth is strewn with real thorns, no book will change that fact. On the contrary, some books will awaken us to it.

In my opinion this is a great book, definitely is not a sequel to Rudolf Steiner. If you are an independent thinker, not subordinated to controlling religions, dogmas or associations, you will enjoy this enlightening literature. Valentin Tomberg developed his own insights in addition to writings by Steiner and for that very reason Tomberg has been largely attacked. Anyone who tried to go further from Steiner ideas was considered kind of treacher to Anthroposophical Society. As I feel more comfortable with Tomberg's Neo-planonist drive than with Steiner's Aristotelian trend, I have been really enjoying Christ and Sophia. Allow your intellect to reap benefit from this reading. I highly recommend Tomberg's Christ and Sophia, and Meditations on the Tarot too.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I see this book as complementary to Rudolf Steinner publications concerning the importance of the mystery of golgota as an inflection point in the history of humanity.But I am not sure you need to be familiarized with Rudolf Steinner books to read this one, although it would probably help. This book takes you step by step form the old testament, new testament and revelation through the preparation, execution, meaning and result of the mystery of Jesus Christ coming to earth. The book is very well writen, very coherent and deep. It is a must buy book for any one of any religion who wants to taste a very interesting and convincent interpretation of the mission of Jesus Christ. Due to the depth of the book it will probably deserve reading it several times.

Not an easy book to read and it takes time to assimilate it but worth reading. Ideas and thoughts you won't find anywhere else.
