Description

This book is a classic of esoteric Christianity in which Tomberg reflects on the mysteries of humanity's covenant with God through history.

The book includes meditations on creation, the fall, the Old Testament covenant and the ten commandments, before moving on to Christ's miracles, culminating in the raising of Lazarus as a symbol for humanity being raised from sleep and death to wakefulness and resurrection.
