Description

Woven from Joseph Campbell s previously unpublished work, this volume explores Judeo-Christian symbols and metaphors and their misinterpretations with the famed mythologist s characteristic conversational warmth and accessible scholarship. Campbell s insights highlight centuries of confusion between literal and metaphorical interpretations of Western religious symbols that are, he argues, perennially relevant keys to spiritual understanding and mystical revelation."

Review quote

[A] romp through the Judeo-Christian tradition a lightning-paced tour with an extremely knowledgeable and provocative guide to illuminate some intriguing, untrammeled paths.
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
It is Campbell the armchair speaker who shines through, buoyant with life and with comments that are eerily relevant to current times.
Parabola
The work confirms the commonality of the human experience. A much-needed prescription in today s world.
