The Meanings of Christmas: Reflections on the Advent of Light (Signature Edition Imprint)
Manly Palmer Hall's writings on Christmas—edited by James Boobar, preface by Greg Salyer, Ph.D. Artistic covers by David Orr.
Manly Hall was at his best when he was bringing the esoteric to light, from ancient mythologies and rituals to contemporary expressions of them that are “hidden” or unknown to most. For the first time in print, here is the full spectrum of Mr. Hall’s reflections on the advent of the light commonly referred to as Christmas.
This anthology contains material from throughout Mr. Hall’s productive life and reveals remarkable consistency in his profound insights on the history, context, and meanings of Christmas. Readers will be surprised by joy at the many meanings of Christmas and how the ancient holiday reveals our deepest longings for enlightenment.
“Manly P. Hall was a multi-faceted genius. Fortunately, his written words are still with us."
