First, though, if you're reading this like an editorial, demanding to be convinced of the author's "correctness," this might not be for you. And, while we're on the subject, let me also suggest that this approach is unproductive. I think that, for better or for worse, people adopt beliefs by example, based on the moral authority of their role models, rather than on their philosophical "validity." We look down on huckster moralists who engage in the same hedonism they rail against when they think no one is watching. By the same token, I have to feel a certain respect for a man who backed up his beliefs by living a life of ascetic prayer in the mountains. "Agreeing" or "disagreeing" with him is not really important.
But on to the book. Its subject matter is somewhat eccentric, but that simply reflects the strangeness of various "spiritual" fads and trends in 1970s California.Read more ›

Very dated since much of what he discusses was all the rage a few decades ago. But as a retrospective of new Age religion it is quite good.Published on August 23, 2014 by Well Read
I do appreciate many of the thoughts of father Seraphim Rose. But we shouldn't be blind about his bigotry... if we outlook it we easily can become a bigot ourselves. Read morePublished on July 5, 2014 by zero
