The Gnosis: Or Ancient Wisdom in the Christian Scriptures
Goes back to the initial teachings that were used in the creation of the Christian religion and demonstrates that they were actually derived from the Gnosis, or Ancient Wisdom. Gnosis is a Greek word meaning knowledge, or to know. In the early Church those who were mystics, or Gnostics, were rejected and considered heretics. What makes this book so important is that it identifies certain mystical teachings from early times as rightfully belonging in the Church. According to Kingsland, this is the real Christian message as originally understood by the Gospel writers.
