"There was a period in my early thirties when these four small books by Gerald Heard served almost as my bible. I read and reread them, and invariably found them to be uplifting and inspiring."
- Professor Huston Smith
"Gerald Heard was an inspiring voice for the life of the spirit. Wipf & Stock is to be commended that Heard's remarkable work is being made available to a new generation of spiritual seekers."
- Dr. William H. Forthman
In The Creed of Christ, Gerald Heard masterfully examines the Lord's Prayer, which he describes as, "the real creed of Christianity." Heard interprets Christ's supplication as the key to unfolding an entirely new way of life: "The task is nothing less than the shift of the whole being, the entire consciousness, until it alters from self-consciousness to…God-consciousness."
This supreme quest first calls for the transcendence of self: "I must start, before anything else, by clearing myself out of the way." Heard then reaffirms Christ's rousing words that the Kingdom is found within us: "Our Lord evidently held that the Kingdom…is already here, around us, within us." A modern spiritual classic, The Creed of Christ challenges all seekers to grow spiritually. Gerald Heard beckons us to enter the very heart of religious experience, leading to pulsating union with God.
