Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 4, 2011
So much information has been discovered about history in general, and the Bible specifically, in the last four decades that it is radically changing our understanding of Judaism and Christianity. Literally hundreds of archeological discoveries have literally re-written the Biblical narrative and further developed the theology of Jesus Christ. Christ Enlightened, The Lost Teachings of Jesus Unveiled summarizes what these new discoveries are and what they reveal.
In his new book, Steven Sadleir describes the ancient world and the historical context of Jesus to Jews and the Pagan world, and covers the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha, the Merkabah and the Kabbalah, as well as drawing upon the Gnostic literature and writings of the Ebionites, Nazareans, the Aramaic Gospel and writing from the Nag Hammadi Library, including the gospels of Thomas, Mary, Philip and James. Steven also goes into depth on the discussion of the New Testament Canon, the development of the Church and the Council of Nicea. According to Sadleir "Most Christians live in absolute ignorance of their own religion and a great opportunity awaits all believers."
Steven S. Sadleir is best-selling author of Looking for God, a Seeker's Guide to Religious and Spiritual Groups of the World (3rd Edition) and Wake Up, Live the Life You Love (co-authored with Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer). Steven is also host of Enlightenment Radio (on line 24/7), several podcasts, blogs and websites including Self Awareness and Christ Enlightened. He is also recognized as a Kundalini Master and Yogi with students in over 120 countries. He also appears in two new movies recently released, Spiritual Revolution and 3 Magic Words.
In response to his interviews on radio and television Sadleir comments: "We'll be certainly do get the phone lines lit." As this most controversial subject braves the airwaves, viewers react with strong opinions in favor and opposition to these discoveries. Steven gives the electronic version of the book away for free from the website.
Steven will be lecturing and signing books at the Bodhi Tree Bookstore at 8585 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, California, Saturday February 19th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Free. Published by Amazon, $12.95 paper, 208 pages ISBN 978-1-4392-6785-1.
