Format: Paperback
This book is wonderful. My copy has already suffered at the hands of a highlighter,a pencil, and many re-readings. Even in its dog-eared state this text is beautiful and leaves you just short of your own gnosis. Tom Cheetham-as Prometheus- has brought us light from the Gods. His work on Corbin was very much needed and makes Corbin accesible...well at least in the English translations ;much of Corbin's work is still in French. The title of the book is somewhat misleading. This book isn't simply about "Islamic Mysticism" or "Henry Corbin", it is much more about worldviews. I promise this book will take your worldview and "turn it inside out".

We must say that this is THE book to read if you want to take personally all the esoteric Sufi material presented by the spiritual genius Henry Corbin. We take this book with us on trips, we keep it by our bedside, we talk about these lucid ideas with our campanions on the path. Wake up and die before you die....

I'm immersed in Cheetham's train of thought as he presents Henri Corbin's
views, and I look forward to searching out the various notes and references to further deepen my knowledge and appreciation of Corbin's life. I adore Corbin and thank Tom Cheetham for bringing me a bit closer
to him through these compelling chapters.

I haven't quite finished it but can't put it down. It should be required reading for anyone seeking a serious relationship with the Divine and who is concerned with the future of the planet and the human role in that future.

A wonderful entry-way into the world of Henry Corbin (in case 'jumping in' to Corbin's writing isn't your cup of tea.) Or, you may choose to read this side by side with one of Corbin's works. Or afterwards. Just read it!! Cheetham is a wonderful author.
