Being a shocking attempt to reconcile the visions of enlightenment from one age into another, including a previously little-known essay by Frater Achad, some tales of the Aeon of Osiris and others of the Aeon of Horus, that the Son of Righteousness shall shine in the Mythos of the Aeon of the Crowned and Conquering Childe.

Contains previously unpublished material from Frater Achad (Charles Stansfeld Jones) and T Allen Greenfield.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crowley, Christ, Frater Achad 1 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kabbalah, Crowley, Christ, archeology, sure what could possibly go wrong? Interesting speculation, though you would need some up to date knowledge of the aforesaid topics. Not to mention a postmodern ability to shift your viewpoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most controversial book you must read 11 Oct. 2012
By lighthouse418 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book by Charles Stansfeild Jones and Tau Allen Greenfield is truly one of a kind and bears mostly the genius of Mr. Greenfield in its format and construction.
This is truly a one of a kind book. What makes it so unique is orthodox thinkers on the Thelemic and Christian fronts are likely to be disturbed by this bare bones expose of Gnosis at its best.
Mr. Greenfield is a Gnostic Bishop and has been involved in the "Free Illuminism" movement which has brought together esoteric thinkers from many schools of thought in a international body of shared Communion.
The only complaint I have in regards this book is that the sections which were written by Jones are not clearly demarcated. I have discussed this with Mr. Greenfield privately and he has told me the publisher has been alerted to this for future consideration.
The book is built upon some early essays by Charles Stansfeild Jones. These essays went largely unknown and Tau Greenfield builds upon them in the way that only a unique and original thinker like him can.
Without spoiling too much of the fun I will just say here that there is plenty for everyone to be offended by or rejoice in.
The Central Underlying Theme is that Gnosis is a ever flowing stream winding its way through ALL Traditions.
This idea is not original to Mr. Greenfield but it is very clearly demonstrated and built upon.
Given that the traditions concerning the "life of Christ" are a maze of legends this book boldly weaves these legends into a original work that reads very well for the 21st Century Gnostic.
This was a bold gesture and deserves to be recognized and read. In between these interwoven legends concerning the "life of Christ" we find interposed wonderfully entertaining interludes dealing with the Great Work of other Gnostic Masters in the Authentic Tradition.
In fact, I highly recommend Mr. Greenfield's book "The Roots of Modern Magick" as a companion volume.
I found these "interludes" highly original and very enjoyable. The overall theme of the book supports the general outlook of Free Illuminism which views all Masters and Streams of Gnosis connected in the Great Work of Illumination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blaspheme not the name by which another knoweth his (or her) God 2 Dec. 2012
By Bill Zenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Read this rare - never before published - essay by Charles Stansfeld Jones (aka Frater Achad) who was a devoted student of Thelema, an initiate of the magical order of the A.'. A.'., and one of the pioneer organizers of the Ordo Templi Orientis in British Columbia, Canada. Like his mentor and primary teacher - Aleister Crowley - Jones was a complex personality. Whether you love him or hate him, he unquestionably left a mark on Thelema from his many years of service and his unique contributions.

T Allen Greenfield has studied the letters and other unpublished archival materials of Frater Achad for some 20+ years. He is also in contact with Frater Achad's son - Tony Jones - who graciously consented to the publication of his father's essay. The book also includes 'reveries' from Greenfield, where he artfully weaves together a sort of mythos of many spiritual and magical paths and traditions. The forward by Bishop +Thomas Langley also frames the content of the book in a very helpful manner - encouraging those of divergent spiritual paths to step back for a moment and consider how their own traditions might share a similar source, or, at the very least, have a few things in common.

4.0 out of 5 stars A single fire that burns on many altars 22 Feb. 2013
By Matthew J. Raymo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. The Master Therion (Old Holy Crowley) actually was very fond of the Bible and basically recommended to his progeny to stick with the Bible and Shakespeare. Robert Cochrane also said that he was into "the founder but not the followers" of the X-tianity...

This is the Gnosis the Christians stole from the rest of us, it is high time for someone to steal it back.

I had already read The Secret Ciphers of the Ufonauts and Secret Rituals of the Men in Black so I was primed for more of this special brand of "heresy". It is also high time Frater Achad got some more attention and Allen has done him a great service.

If you are really interested in who "Christ" was and what "initiation" is and if you have a mind flexible enough then this book will bend it into whole new shapes. As Truth comes in types and images we must be open but aware that the truth is always something more than what we have been spoon fed... Although as the show said; "The truth is out there" it is up to forward thinkers like Allen Greenfield to point their fingers at some of the lesser seen moons and help us get closer to "the science of reality" and away from petty differences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christian Thelemite? It is possible, my friends! 15 Dec. 2012
By +Palamas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
T Allen Greenfield has done it again! He has given us previously unpublished material in an original context-- with so much added text that it becomes a unified weaving of ideas within the central context of Frater Achad's essay.

Frater Achad's core theme of "not throwing the baby out with the bathwater" is clearly stated and is most effective when read alongside or after "The Message of the Master Therion."

The "waxing philosophical", creative and stimulating musings of T Allen build upon this same idea but within the light of Allen's extensive experience, study and work in the area of Comparative Religion. I was personally entranced by the story of the Antient & Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misraim's History and the elucidation of the Authentic Tradtion throughout the ages and within the Mystery Schools.

Beautifully written and a must for serious students of the Occult.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you dare to enter? 25 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While most of the authors on field of Thelema are entrapped in plagiarism, Greenfield dares to promote entirely fresh discourse - but also very "traditional" in terms of seeking for the truth: Gnosis is something found by dilligent student in all of mystical traditions. Consequently, Gnosis can be found in Christianity and in Thelema. These words and work surely will not be accepted lightly into minds of sectarian types, but we can only hope aeon flux will help to enlighten them all.
