Myths to Live by,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Myths to Live By (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A penetrating review of world religions and corresponding myths. A brilliant exposition with clarity and insight.It compares the western concept of God as a seperate kingly entity as projective 'Father' who admnisters punishment and reward, to the Eastern of Gnosis - the christian 'heresy'. Jesus is seen as God in man, unique, but in the Orient God is immanent in all men, to be revealed as identification with the Divine and loss of the sense of self. But infintely more gained.
