"The Laughing Jesus is a manifesto for Gnostic mysticism. Freke and Gandy's exposition of Gnostic enlightenment is lucid and accessible; their critique of Literalist religion is damningly severe." Robert M. Price, professor of scriptural studies, Johnnie Colemon Theological Seminary, and editor of The Journal of Higher Criticism "This book is stunning, mind blowing, faith producing, goodness showing, God revealing, scientific paradigm shifting and potentially world saving. I was enthralled, I was uplifted, I was saved and I am beyond motivated to spread the word. This book, in it scope and its veracity, is maybe the most important book in terms of revealing spiritual truths since books like The Bhagavad Gita, The Yoga Sutras and The Spanda Karikas." Patrick Wells, producer of I Love You to Death starring Keanu Reeves "The Laughing Jesus is a daring and thought-provoking book. Read it and nothing that you thought about the great monotheistic religions will ever look quite the same again." Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods "The Laughing Jesus should be considered not merely a good read, although it is, but also a matter of burning urgency, for this is one of the most important books that has emerged in this infant millennium." Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words
