Product description


"Smoley, former editor of the journal Gnosis and author of Inner Christianity and Forbidden Faith, is adept at unknotting the paradoxes of spiritual traditions and making new connections across centuries and languages. In his newest book, he tackles the vexed question of love, which he avers has a unique place at the center of Christian spirituality yet eludes precise classification–as most know, there are at least four words translated as "love" in New Testament Greek alone. Smoley has written that rare book that should exert a strong appeal for Christian and non–Christian readers alike. Highly recommended." – ( Library Journal,July 2008)


Though love is a perennial topic for writers of all kinds, much of what is written about love is simplistic and unsatisfying. In "Conscious Love", Richard Smoley - an expert on the esoteric traditions of mystical Christianity - incorporates insights and wisdom about love from noted thinkers in literature, art, philosophy, sociology, cultural criticism, and even neurology. This remarkable book offers a blueprint for infusing conscious love into human relationships.
