Cover Interview of May 16, 2017

Lastly

I have spoken to many different audiences about gnostic movements and religions and always I am asked what books they can read to learn more about the gnostics. I hope that I have written that book, and that in the process, I have also shown why the gnostic survives in American religion and culture. And why it is so attractive to religious seekers today such as the spiritual-but-not-religious, whose spiritual truth is based on personal experiences of God, human goodness and wholeness, and the desire for spiritual empowerment to change our lives and the bigger world for the better.
