Rediscovering the Seeds

Subtitled, 'Christianity, Islam, and the Sufis', this important book is the basis of a lecture by Shah at a symposium at Geneva University in 1972. The theme of his contribution was 'Salvation as a Total Surrender to God: An attempt at Dialog between Christians and Muslims. The book demonstrates the commonality of the two religions based upon the unity of experience of the act of surrender and the historic acceptance of higher level practitioners of these religions of the practices and religion of the other. In keeping with the theme of his other books Shah is enormously helpful to those desiring to approach the bases of the religious experience by demonstrating obstacles that stand in the way. Important now, this book will grown in importance in the future as the decay of these religions moves those who can to look for their seed in the experience of the man of knowledge.
