Many Christians today yearn for a deeper, more inward practice of their faith. Drawing on the ancient wisdom tradition and the themes and symbols of medieval romance, Robert Ellwood shows Christianity at its most profound to be a philosophical, meditative, and mystical path. The two symbols at the heart of Christian belief - the Cross and the Grail - represent the two faces of contemporary Christianity. The Cross is its outward face - masculine, public, exalted. The Grail is its hidden or esoteric face - magical, feminine, sought by many, found only by those who are able to ask the right questions. This book teaches you to ask the right questions. Its readings, stories, prayers, and practices can help you plumb the hidden depths of a faith you may have taken for granted.
