It took me a while to get through this book, as I really had to chew on certain concepts before reading on. If you are yearning for a deeper understanding of God and the spiritual path, if you find the current religious structures and biblical teachings to be rigid and dogmatic, if you feel there is more out there than the Catholics or the Protestants have taught so far, this book will help you.

Keep an open mind to less-traditional views of the Christian faith, the spiritual path and of humanit

This book is truly amazing and inspiring work. Marion does a masterful job mapping out the entire path to the Kingdom of Heaven, which is the highest level of human consciousness.

Recommends it for: seekers
That there is full on spiritual path from Baby to Christhood that can be seen and walked in this life and that this is what Jesus was talking about and trying to get folks to take up. This book describes each stage of human development according to the Christian tradition. It has never been done before.

This is a very good exploration of what Christianity/Christian Spirituality looks and feels like if the religious seeker actually tries to live a life "in Christ". Marion is not in an ivory tower. He takes spirituality where we all find it: in our physical selves from the time we are born. He shares his own journey/struggles. He makes good use of developmental psychology, both personal and communal, and then moves into areas most of us have not experienced deeply if at all. He also references ot ...more

Wow. This is a work of genius. Marion puts the world's mysticism together under a Christian framework while upholding each religion's integrity. He gave me a deeper understanding of my own experience on the spiritual path, a sense of where I am and where I have yet to go. He also had me, not only contemplating, but considering elements of spiritual beliefs that I have always found suspect. Bravo, Jim. This is a work for the ages.
