Tarcher/Penguin). "For nearly four decades Jacob Needleman has confronted the central questions of our era in light of the vision that lies at the root of the world's great spiritual traditions. Needleman's work clarifies: it takes topics that exist in disparate threads throughout our culturenew religions, esoteric Christianity, the founding myths of Americaand frames them in a manner both sensible and deeply questioning." - Parabola.
