Also known as The Hymn of the Pearl, this is an important Gnostic text and should be essential reading for anyone interested in early mystical literature. It is an allegorical tale. Instead of an outer journey, as what seems to be initially described, it is meant to be interpreted as an inner, deeper journey with far more spiritual significance than seen on the surface. The overall message can be quite profound, depending on the reader’s level of spiritual understanding. Paperback , ISBN 1585092533 , 6 x 9 , 100 pp.
