Thought provoking even for this atheist. A Jungian interpretation of Jesus. If this author had been my first exposure to the church I could see attending.

This book has been helpful in my journey of consciousness and wholeness. It is a different perspective from what I'm used to reading in Christian literature, as it delves deep into psychological aspects of the Christian life. I loved the focus on the development of the individual, but that also scared me. I come from a context where individual-focus sounds selfish and prideful. But at the risk of seeming selfish I've longed to explore and develop my inner consciousness and therefore reach more u [...]

It took me a while, but i have finished this book. It really made me think about the integration of body, mind, and spirit. We must see ourselves as a whole person, with both male and female, light and dark, divine and human fully realized in the way that Christ lived His life.

This is an interesting book dealing with what Jesus call "The Kingdome of God." He has some remarkable insights on what Jesus' words mean. He showed how the two parables comparing the Kingdom to the Peril and the Treasure in the field are not the same, in fact they are actually oposites with an astonding result I had never realized.

This is one of the top suggested reads to go with a book study of Natural Spirituality (Rockwood Hudson). Sanford illuminates scripture we would normally associate with an outer experience and helps us to see the meaning for our more unconscious inner lives. In this way we learn the journey to God is not a place to get to, but an uncovering of the hidden Christ within -- which gets us to an inner journey to the kingdom of God. Lots of good passages marked to read again

This book was so good I might have to go out and purchase my own copy since the copy I have was borrowed :) I really enjoyed reading my first book by this author. There was a lot of wisdom and insight into some of the scripture passages. The author shared his own insight of course but it was very thought provoking for me, and definitely worthy of a re-visit in the future.

Fabulous book for those seeking to engage with scripture on many levels. Sanford invites us to use our imagination and allow the depths of our souls to be transformed by taking time to inwardly digest God's word.

I am a big fan of Jung, indepth psychology, and the theme of the Kingdom within is one of my favourite Christian topics and I like to read extensively on it. I hope to discuss this books with somebody who read it.

Very insightful, clear, progressive and gentle words in understanding the Christian faith, beliefs, and a God who truly loves all unconditionally. Definitely not a read for radical, right fundamentalist!
