"We overlook the very heart and soul of Christianity when we reduce it to Rules, dogmas, and rigid moral directives. Inner Christianity helps correct that mistake by spelling out, clearly and thoughtfully, the subtle interior mysteries of this religion. This book could help many, Christians and others, find a new level of intelligence in Christian thought and practice. It could change the direction of your spiritual life." - Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and The Soul's Religion
"In this deeply wise and important work, Richard Smoley restores the realms of inner space to the Christian tradition. Drawing upon a wide range of mystical and esoteric literature and practice, he shows how multi- dimensional is the Christian message, and how profound its understanding pf the nature and purpose of the psyche. In a time of so much change and confusion, this potent book serves as a source of profound guidance and gnosis." - Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of A Mythic Life and Jump Time
