Summary

"The seed is the word of God" (Luke 8:15)-or is it? For Christian mystic Pekka Ervast, orthodox religion failed to explain the real meaning of life. Then the great Russian author Leo Tolstoy gave him an esoteric view, opening new worlds. Ervast saw humans as reincarnating souls journeying through the school of this world to learn and evolve. He interprets the words of the Schoolmaster Jesus through the way of the truth-seeker, illuminating his parables, lessons, and practical advice for living honestly.

Author Biography

Pekka Ervast (1875-1934) was a Finnish writer and Theosophist whose works include the masterful Key to the Kalevala, an esoteric interpretation of the Finnish national epic.
