Critic Reviews

"Smoley presents his work simply and convincingly, with a conversational tone of voice. His scholarly text is balanced by an overriding gentleness that encourages his listener to take in the book's message of spiritual study and discovery. Those with an academic bent will find much to stimulate new inquiry, and those with a more heart-based faith will absorb the message and appreciate the guided meditations." ( AudioFile)

This book is a modern classic for the esoteric

I really never thought I'd find a modern book that gives so much hidden esoteric & symbolic knowledge & wisdom. I have been a member of several esoteric groups for many years that have not penetrated this deeply into the true & highest levels of understanding of a path that I gave up many years ago. This book has given me a new & dynamic perspective of Christianity & completely reinvigorated my interest in it's teachings. Richard Smoley is not only an adept but his voice & tone is pleasant & scholarly while he is able to articulate intricate information in a way that even a beginner on the path can understand & assimilate into daily practices that will reap wisdom & self knowledge for a lifetime.

Would you consider the audio edition of Inner Christianity to be better than the print version?

I have over 300 audio books in my Audible library and this is the first book that compelled me to write a review. It continues to hold my interest and is a great balance of scholarship and modern language. There is substance for the experienced adept as well as the uninitiated. There are so many outstanding attributes contained in this audio book, that I also purchased and read the paperback and buy copies for friends and fellow esoteric students. Give this well researched and written gift to yourself.
