The new man describes clearly the process of personal integration as Jesus taught in the gospels. It is an excellent guide on the difficult path to completion. It gives the student an understanding of some of the inner experience that take place as one evolves spriitually. It describes the tempation, the bewilderment, and confusion that is experienced as part of the process. Those hungering for light will find this book and invaluable guide in understanding they are not crazy, but just experiencing what is necessary as one evolve to wholeness, to peace of mind, to completion within self

...that turned over a new leaf in my thinking. From my then very unclear sense of the meaning of religion, reading "The New Man" was a truly galvanizing experience. It speaks not of faith in the usual out-of-reach sense nor the hoped reward of Heaven beyond one's death. It speaks of knowing, during one's life.
Dr. Nicoll illuminates the beautifully subtle teaching of Christ as a way to complete one's inner evolution - to become literally a "new" man or woman, pretty much discarding the old false self. To as he says "overcome one's own inner violence" and change inwardly seems a deceptively major task, but a hopeful one.
This is a book that will open ideas for certain readers.

The premise of this book is that, whether or not Jesus actually existed as a historical figure, the teachings associated with him provide clear and timeless guidance for people looking to understand how to live. His parables are seen as allegories of the individual soul, and this book will have appeal to those who are turned off by the unforgiving literalness of modern Christianity, which too often has to do with creating an identity rather than a compassionate heart.

If you are hoping to deepen your understanding of Christianity, of the TRUE message of Jesus Christ - and if you have gotten lost in the church interpretations - this book has the potential to change your spiritual understanding, and, as a result, your life.

This book is fantastic for anyone who wants the real truth about the bible. If you want to see the bible in the psychological rather than the literal, then you need this book.

This is not a book for everyone. But if you are a person looking for better spiritual perspectives- more understandable and common sense perspectives of the Bible parables, this book is for you. I am on my second reading and have found it even more enlightening than the first reading. Nicoll is brilliant in his interpretations and he makes perfect sense- a rarity among other authors who try to complicate matters. This is worth the money and worth reading- more than once.

My new softcover purchase through Amazon.com was intended as a gift to a friend. I had acquired an original copy by Maurice Nicoll that was published in hardcover (c. 1950) at a used book sale in 1967. The subject matter of the book is an interpretation of some of the teaching parables and miracles of Christ. For those readers who have a familiarity with the theories of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum theory, a connection to the described miracles might be suggestively apparent.

In The New Man Maurice Nicoll explains as to why the gospels where written in such a cryptic way, for if it is taken literally it would be occasionally cruel and violent yet it is exactly this negatives what the gospels attempt to eradicate from man, in this book nicoll reaches a hand out with a handful of psychology understanding and if you will put forth your hand and take it for yourself (or buy it, as you will understand after reading the book) a definite deepening of your own understanding will take place, not a though, an emotion or a sensation but a definite realization beyond the senses, of what is good.

This book started my husband and myself on a new faith journey. We loved it and anyone who is learning toward a 'new thought' thinking should read it.

Very good and insightful. The book explains what you really need to know of the bible, and not social religion.
