Publisher's Description

The Gospel of John as a Soul's Journey is a commentary on the Gospel of the Beloved Disciple from a psychological standpoint. It is a continuation of ideas of the Episcopal minister and psychiatrist, John A Sanford, who wrote "Mystical Christianity." This book sees John's Gospel not as history, but as most scholars see it, as a symbolic story. It goes farther from the conventional view, however, in that it sees the sequence of events in the Gospel as a guide for everyone in their journey in life. This commentary goes beyond the concept which John Sanford developed, that the Jews in the Gospel represents the human ego. It also sees Jesus, whose name means, "Savior" not as the historical figure, but as the force in everyone's life which wants to save them to a higher form of existence.William Fairbanks is a retired computer programmer who has taken up writing. He was brought up in the Methodist tradition and was named after a grandfather who was a superintendent of Sunday Schools for many years. His mother was active in her church, teaching Sunday School for many years. He himself wasn't active in religious activities until the age of forty when he had a mystical experience. He was saw in the sky what is known as the Cross of Constantine, as the Emperor Constantine saw the same thing at a decisive time in his life. Since that time he has devoted much time and effort in the study of the Bible and participation in group study. He has written one other book on the Bible "Personal Wellness through the Old Testament."
