Description

Tarot cards have long held a fascination for those interested in spiritual experimentation, and a horror for many church-goers. But where do the mysterious images on the Tarot cards come from? Ross Clifford and Philip Johnson have pioneered a unique spiritual exploration of the meaning of the Tarot that has been widely acclaimed at the twice-yearly Festival of Body, Mind and Spirit in Australia. In this fascinating book they, together with well-known British writer John Drane, reveal that many of the Tarot symbols have their roots in what is perhaps the most unlikely place - the Bible. They go on to explore their links with religious phenomenology, folk-lore, Jungian analysis and archetypes from the world of literary fantasy and demonstrate how the symbols are expressions of the spiritual needs of people of all times and all places. And they investigate the enormous swell of interest in the Tarot in recent years, particularly within the New Age movement.
