Followers of the New Thought movement of the early 20th century sought to find God through explorations of the metaphysical. Here, one of the most influential thinkers of this early "New Age" philosophy takes a fresh look at the life and teachings of Jesus Christ through a New Thought lens. In this series of "lessons" originally published as a series of monthly missives in 1907 and 1908, we discover the previously hidden esoteric meanings behind much of the story of Jesus, from the foretelling of his birth to the strange mysteries of his healing of the sick to the occult ceremony of the Last Supper. This is an eye-opening reinterpretation of a familiar story. American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932) was editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books under numerous pseudonyms, including "Yogi Ramacharaka" and "Theron Q. Dumont." ALSO FROM COSIMO: Atkinson's Memory: How to Develop, Train and Use It; Advanced Course in Yogi Philosophy and Oriental Occultism; The Art and Science of Personal Magnetism: The Secret of Mental Fascination; The Science of Psychic Healing; Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World; and others
