Has anyone else read Jacob Needleman’s Lost Christianity? I’m about half-way through it now and need to let some of the ideas resonate through conversation.

What is most interesting is how this particular book lept into my hands at exactly this moment. It seems to be speaking to a number of issues I have had concerning how Christianity is simultaneously devoid of and is yet the keeper of Truth for Western culture. A couple of interesting quotes, including one on how Christianity must include both magic and religion, will be posted presently.
