Eleanor and Franklin
The Story of Their Relationship Based on Eleanor Roosevelt's Private PapersBook - 2004
Magical Christianity is a means of bringing about spiritual transformation. It refers to both a mystical transfiguration of the soul, and an active participation in the mediation of Divine Love, Power, and Wisdom to little suspected "inner" aspects of Creation. Contact with such inner realities is achieved through the imaginative use of symbolic material -- images, legends, myths, rites, and ceremonies. This fascinating and insightful study of Christian magical lore focuses on the mystical significance of seven key archetypes: The Sphere, The Axis, The Holy Fire, The Center, The Wheel of Life, The Three Worlds, and The Planes of Being.
