Additional Information

Rudolf Steiner shows, by means of mystical knowledge, how the source of Christianity prepared its own ground in the mysteries of pre-Christian times. In this pre-Christian mysticism, we find the soil in which Christianity grew, as a seed of independent nature. Steiner makes it possible to understand Christianity as an independent being, while traced from pre-Christian mysticism. This book is intended to show that Christianity presupposes the earlier mysticism, just as a seed must have its soil. It is intended to emphasise the peculiar character of the essence of Christianity, through the knowledge of its evolution.

In this book, Steiner describes how Christianity evolved from earlier esoteric traditions such as the mystery schools, Egyptian and Eastern wisdom, and Greek philosophy.
Steiner interprets the life of Chrsit as a model for the path of an initiate. As examples, he offers elegant insights into parts of the gospels which have previously left me "in the dark." Some say that Steiner's approach to the Christianity has been continued by Joseph Campbell. If you like Campbell, you'll like this book.
This book has reinvigorated Christianity for me-- by showing me how it can be interpreted like a myth. Now I can look at the gospels in a new manner, and gain new insights from them.
I think that it helps to have a little background in Greek philosophy to read this book, but I don't think that its absolutely necessary.
I learned about this book while reading translator Andrew Welburn's excellent book The Beginnings of Christianity: Essene Mystery, Gnostic Revelation and the Christian Vision. These two books should be treated as a set. I was apprehensive about reading Steiner, not wanting anything to do with occult, psychic, or reincarnation ideas -- fortunately, none of these appear in this particular book.
Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in the original, esoteric forms of Christianity as a Jewish-styled version of the Hellenistic mystery-religion, as described in the book The Jesus Mysteries, by Freke and Gandy.
Great Book, but the particular publication is terrible. Does not even mention the translation. The print is all but microscopic. Just a cheap computerjob with zero love or respect to the book contents.
