9780060619961: Desert Wisdom: Sacred Middle Eastern Writings from the Goddess Through the Sufis

The traditional prejudiced Western view of the Middle East is dominated by Islamic fundamentalism and the oil industry. There is an atmosphere of fear and mystery that surrounds the whole region. This book aims to dispel that fear and reveal the richness of its culture and spirituality. The author explores ancient goddess cultures, Aramaic words of Jesus, Egyptian, Ancient Judaic, Gnosticism and Sufism, offering a powerful resource for healing and change in the West.

From the Back Cover:

If you talk with your friends while in the midst of reading 'Desert Wisdom' they will probably suspect you've fallen in love and they will be right, for Neil Douglas-Klotz has provided, for the modern reader, a way into one of the planet's most powerful experiences of an ecstatic and mystical love – the way of the native Middle Eastern wisdom traditions.

"'Desert Wisdom' is a passageway for anyone wishing to contact the numinous and creative energy capable of transforming our time into a new millennium of peace and wisdom."
BRIAN SWIMME, Co-author with THOMAS BERRY, of 'The Universe Story'

"This is a prophetic and mystical accomplishment of the first order!"
MATTHEW FOX, author of 'Original Blessing'
