The Unknown Lives of Jesus and Mary Compiled from Ancient Records and Mystical Revelations
"There are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." (Gospel of Saint John, final verse)
You can discover much of those "many other things which Jesus did" in this unique compilation of ancient records and mystical revelations, which includes historical records of the lives of Jesus Christ and his Mother Mary that have been accepted and used by the Church since apostolic times. This treasury of little-known stories of Jesus' infancy, his sojourn in the Orient as recorded in the famous Ladakh Manuscript, and his passion, crucifixion, and resurrection, will broaden the reader's understanding of what Christianity really was in its original form: a far more vibrant and conscious movement than what we see today in its place.
But this book is more than just a collection of ancient texts. Abbot George Burke's illuminating and scholarly commentary adds a further dimension and relevance, and will guide you to a deeper understanding of how, as he puts it, "to manifest the inner Christ that abides within us all."
