Editorial Reviews

Review

The Mystery of Individuality: Grandeur and Delusion of the Human Condition examines what distinguishes humans as individuals in twelve chapters that explore spirituality, psychology, sociology, love, and the appreciation of sacred art. Complex social issues including leadership, justice, politics, and crime are also discussed in relation to the essence of human beings as creations in the image of God. If God deliberately created humans with individual personalities, then are the unique traits of personhood part of our divine essence, even though our frames are destined to return to dust? The Mystery of Individuality is a thoughtful, contemplative, and complex work, especially recommended for spirituality shelves. (Midwest Book Review)

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Samuel Bendeck Sotillos on February 19, 2013
Format: Paperback
The Mystery of Individuality is a relentless no holds barred exploration of the paradoxical nature of the human condition. Amidst the thrashing current of the modern and postmodern wasteland that has lost its vision in all regards, but more explicitly with what it means to be fully human. This work requires slowing down and centering oneself and may likely also entail suspending one's normative thought process that has been conditioned by a hyper-cerebral outlook which fervently opposes anything that evades empirical verification. This does not however suggest suspending one's "critical thinking," but aligning reason with the transcendent source that fosters an awakening of intelligence. This book pushes us to go beyond the idols of relativism in order to enter another reality, an ancient reality, but nonetheless timeless and accessible--here and now. Those who make the effort to travel through its pages will certainly be rewarded.

-Journal of Transpersonal Research, Vol. 4, No. 1, 2012
