"Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey Into Christian Hermeticsm" is a truly extraordinary book. Not only has this book been a blessing to thousands of Christians-- Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Orthodox alike --it has generally been met with great enthusiasm by readers outside (and on the margins) of the institutional church, as well. And with apparent links to at least two of the last three Popes (to John Paul II via Hans Urs von Balthasar; and to Benedict XVI via Robert Spaemann), it has also generated some very positive reviews among high-ranking clerics and churchmen. In short, these Meditations cannot be easily dismissed by those who find the word Tarot in the title off-putting. Indeed, whether you are a (small “o”) orthodox Christian, a “new age” explorer, or a hard-core esoteric philosopher, you are almost sure to be both challenged and edified by the very ancient path of Christian Hermeticism described herein. Emerging out of antiquity and coming down to us by way of the cross, this is a never ending journey of sorts–but one upon which sincere seekers throughout the ages have never failed to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
