HOW CAN MANKIND FIND THE CHRIST AGAIN?
The Threefold Shadow-Existence of Our Time and the New Light of Christ
“This is the goal toward which mankind strives through the new wisdom, in the new spirit: To find in the spirit itself the power to overcome egotism and the falseness of life, to overcome self-seeking through love, the sham of life through truth, illness through health-giving thoughts that put us into immediate accord with the harmonies of the universe, because they flow from the harmonies of the harmonies of the universe.” Rudolf Steiner
Steiner examines the inner history of Christianity, explaining its relationship to ancient Judaism, Hellenism, Romanism, Gnosticism, and Egypto-Chaldean initiation.
He describes the hidden spiritual battle raging today and the need for a renewal of the mysteries in a modern form. Today's road to Christ must involve a new formative thinking, whose Christian character is shown in the advent of selflessness, health, and a sense for truth.
