Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0567086496, Paperback)

In this culmination of his life's work, Philip Sherrard draws from the depths of the Orthodox tradition to reveal the 'face' of Christianity as a world religion. Through a critique of the modern scientific and rationalist paradigm, he seeks to restore a Christian cosmology and reaffirms the importance of sacred symbolism and art. The book includes a creative engagement with non-Christian traditions, with the 'metaphysical logic' of the popular esotericist, Ren Gunon, and with distinctive modern writers such as Nietzsche and Jung.
