A common misconception reinforced over the centuries is that mystical experiences are possible only for vowed Religious.
“Images Old and New” takes mysticism out from behind monastic walls and introduces this potential into the life experience of ordinary people. By a simple superimposition of familiar Old and New Testament passages which have not been previously paired, the sincere reader perceives God not as a static creedal belief, but as a dynamic living Essence.
Not for the spiritually timid or the psychologically frail, this volume enables readers to climb the mountain of God from the security of an armchair, to peer into the immensities of the immortal from the summit of a spiritual Everest they had never before thought possible to attain.
