Customers who were raised Christian and have had trouble reconciling metaphysical practice with hierarchical Christian tradition will be relieved to find a version of Christianity that allows them to embrace the teachings of Jesus and still practice magic” — Anna JedrziewskiNew Age Retailer “This book of esoteric theology has as timely a message today as it had at the time of its writing, early in the 20th century.
The author, a highly gifted seer as well as a clergyman, theosophist, and esoteric Christian, remains one of the most fascinating figures of the tradition of alternative spirituality This is definitely highly recommended.
Kabbalistic Meditations on the Taro ” Christian Gnosis combines theosophical insight with esoteric ecclesiastical Christianity.
It’s a fascinating compendium of creative cosmology applied elegantly to the great questions of human existence. Journa l and Publisher of The Bardic Press “This Quest reprint, with its addition of excellent referencing, brings once more an gnois work to any and all who are interested in the esoteric – whether they be Christian or not. It is not a theology; it is one man’s journey of seeing beyond our earthly veil.
Charles Leadbeater never sought to insist or impose, but to share and by that sharing bring a willingness in the reader to question and consider as they search for their own understanding of faith, and all that means.
That is his greatest and most invaluable gift. Charles Webster Leadbeater was a Church of England clergyman until he joined the Theosophical Society in He spent some years in Sri Lanka working for the revival of Buddhism, and later became the Presiding Bishop of the Liberal Chrustian Church, which seeks to combine the preservation of the Catholic sacraments with the widest measure of freedom of thought leadbrater interpretation of the scriptures.

Surprisingly, these lines are from an Egyptian initiation ritual thousands of years before the Christian drama.
Linking the two is just one fascinating element in this profound introduction to esoteric Christianity, as timely today as when it was first published in Famed clairvoyant Charles Webster Leadbeater was a bishop of the Liberal Catholic Church, which preserves the sacraments while interpreting the scriptures with maximum freedom.

Interesting research hnosis the occult significance of catholic rituals. I highly recommend this book to all those on the esoteric path.
This book is a wonderful summary of the blending between Theosophy and Christianity that Leadbetter facilitated. While one may have slightly different views than he did, his explanations and discussions are cnristian worth contemplating and leadbwater excellent sources for meditation. Leadbetter also has a very nice writing style that is easy to read without having to decipher what it is he’s trying to say.
I highly recommend this work for all seekers who are of a Christian slant. This book is a combination theosophist and gnostic retake on Christianity. If you’re a traditional Christian with even fairly orthodox views, the re-defining of Christian vocabulary and of Jesus may offend you or you might find yourself rolling your eyes at it.
If you’re a Christian Fundamentalist, Chrishian, strong Catholic, etc. CW Leadbeater is quite the storyteller. If no word he wrote had any truth to it, than it could be said that he is a most imaginative storyteller. Personally, I am not convinced by his writings. I believe that Christianity, as a revealed religion whose most major event took place in the public square is an exoteric religion, not an esoteric one.
For example, I don’t believe that person Jesus allowed himself to be a host body for a disembodied master, and that this was a secret to almost everybody for nearly the whole history of Christianity. Actually, to be quite honest, if you’re an orthodox believer, this book comes across as just weird and random. This is a decent work by C. It’s leadbeaters collected works on christianity really. Now mind you leadbeater didn’t have a nag hammadi library he died before the discovery.
He simply uses the new testament the four gospels and the letters of Paul as well as the apostles creed he also offers soem commentary on the fragments of the gospel of Thomas he didn’t know they were the gospel of Thomas he knew them as a fragments of a unknown gospel and i find his commentary rewarding.

But the whole chrristian reminded me of his other work ” masters and the path”. He gives a lot of space to the ” logos” and what it means. Now Most translations of the word ” logos” is wrong it has so many meanings to say it means just “word” is just one small part of its meaning.
