“Struggle from the chrysalis of this world and take wing to regions which are intimated only by yearning. Those who seek proof of the One need only to acknowledge this yearning. Their despair is the harbinger of hope.”
In these inspired sayings Phillip Medhurst, a lifelong teacher of religion, submits the Judaeo-Christian tradition to a radical re-assessment. The corrosives of private suffering lead at last to a new synthesis, which asserts Gnostic Truth now revealed as “Gnosis made word”. In expressing the long-lost teachings of classic Gnosticism, only fully discovered on the eve of this millenium, Medhurst, as a sometime “orthodox” priest and now realised Gnostic sage, lays the foundations of a new scripture for the 21st century.
