Ebook description:

What would Christianity be like with out the soul? Whereas most individuals would anticipate the Christian bible to disclose a extremely conventional opposition of matter and spirit, the spirit forces of the Previous and New Testaments are sometimes surprisingly bodily, dynamic, and sensible, a matter of power as a lot as ethics. The Secret Historical past of the Soul examines the forgotten or suppressed fashions of physique, soul, and human consciousness discovered within the literature, philosophy and scripture of the traditional and classical worlds. It reveals how the spirit forces of Homer, Plato, Aristotle, and the Previous and New Testaments tended to be portions not entities, and to be carefully certain up with the dynamic bodily flux of the human physique, relatively than cleanly abstracted in some absolute immaterial realm. Forces equivalent to menos and thymos, nephesh, pneuma and dynamis not solely blurred the road between physique and soul, however had been potent and transferable, getting used, in New Testomony tradition, to impact magical cures or bestow magical energy. Associated to this stunning lack of body-soul dualism is a scarcity of dualistic afterlife in both Homer or Hebrew scripture, the place Hades and Sheol are the only real autopsy locations. The Secret Historical past of the Soul restores the residing strangeness of a spirit world full of potent power and sensible magic, in cultures which had not but glimpsed the abstracted soul of later Christianity.
