[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Rudolf Steiner's indications cast the Bible in an entirely new light, one which can stir the soul with indescribable joy and lift it to a new level of understanding and eventually to a higher consciousness.[/FONT]

Reading of the Bible in its common understanding, as wonderful as that can be, does not reveal its deeper message—one that gives its perplexingly difficult sections and passages deep spiritual meaning as part of a uniform theme consistent from Genesis to Revelation.

A major task facing humanity as it moves into the new millennium is that of uniting spiritual and practical life. In the Middle Ages the time of Christendom science, art, religion, and society were still to a great extent united. Untold monks and nuns labored and loved mightily for the sake of God and the world. Their lives of prayer and devotion, centered around the Eucharist, kept the interior flame of worship burning brightly. Radiating outward, the spiritual consequences of their steadfastness resonated throughout the landscape, impregnating villages, towns, and cities with a sense of the divine presence in the world. At this time, too, great cathedrals and humble churches alike filled ordinary people with the understanding that every aspect of life participated in God's purpose. Scholars, philosophers, scientists, and crafts people all of whom contributed to the creation of a sacramental vision of the world in which each thing and every human act were imbued with spiritual significance gathered around these Houses of the Spirit, amplifying its effectiveness.

Rudolf Steiner's powerful revelations carry within themselves the unique conviction of authority, particularly for those highly conversant with both scripture and phenomena.[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]
