From the author's preface: "This third book of the Essene Gospel of Peace is a collection of texts of great spiritual, literary, philosophical and poetical value, created by two powerful, interwoven streams of tradition. Chronologically, the first is the stream of traditions to which the Hebrew people were exposed in the Babylonian prison, dating from the Gilgamesh Epics to the Zend Avesta of Zarathustra. The second is the stream of traditions flowing with poetical majesty through the Old and New Testaments, dating from the ageless Enoch and the other Patriarchs, through the Prophets and on to the mysterious Essene Brotherhood.

"It is the fire which blazes out side your body, which is hotter than your blood. With that fire of death you cook your foods in your homes and in your fields. I tell you truly, it is the same fire which destroys your foods and bodies, even as the fire of malice,which ravages your thoughts, ravages your spirits. For your body is that which you eat, and your spirit is that which you think. Eat nothing, therefore, which a stronger fire than the fire of life has killed. Wherefore, prepare and eat all fruits of trees, and all grasses of the fields, and all milk of beast good for eating. For all these are fed and ripened by the fire of life, all are the gift of the angels of our Earthly Mother. But eat nothing to which only the fire of death gives savor, for such is of Satan."
This book is the way, it's not the "book" it's the mystic teachings, everything is so perfect, so without fault, only Jesus could have said these words, so absolutely beautiful i cry every time i read through it.
The Essene Gospel of Peace. Series is awesome providing insight and enlightenment from documents going back to 500 BC. Only being discovered in Dead Sea scrolls and other mid 20th century discoveries
