The Genesis Meditations: A Shared Practice of Peace for Christians, Jews and Muslims

The Genesis Meditations: A Shared Practice of Peace for Christians, Jews and Muslims

"The New Story about the Oldest Story in the World . . ."

Uniting Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, The Genesis Meditations teaches how early mystics - including Jesus - may have meditated in all three great religions springing from the Middle East. World-known religion scholar and translator Neil Douglas-Klotz finds that all three faiths, in spite of apparent differences, share an emphasis on sacred beginnings. Over the centuries, he points out, Westerners have progressively lost this sense, instead emphasizing apocalyptic endings. Now Dr. Douglas-Klotz seeks to reclaim the lifeaffirming energy of sacred "beginning time," so that we can experience its creative power for ourselves - and perhaps for our world.
