This rate book is brought back into print because it tells the story of alchemy in such simple terms that most all can understand. The cryptic language and symbolism commonly found in alchemy is laid bare so we can comprehend exactly what was meant and what was happening during the pursuit of the alchemical elixir. The premise of the book is to show that the science of alchemy reveals the one law operating within the human spirit and in our quest for immortality. Cockren insists that there is a Divine Plan, and by exploring and experimenting with alchemy, we will find ourselves on the path that will lead us to it. This book must be read in full, so the "complete picture" is shown, and the reader will then see how it all connects. Different parts of the world are covered, as well as different periods of history. There is also a physical alchemy, relating to medicine, that is covered besides the spiritual. Excellent material exists in this small book on the great men of alchemy like St. Germain, Nicholas Flamel, Basil Valentine, and Paracelsus. The book concludes by reprinting two of the world's most important Hermetic alchemical texts -- The Golden Tracate of Hermes and The Book of the Revelation of Hermes.
