The following are cover statements from the 1999 paperback edition.
“Already a treasured work of Christian mysticism, Son of Man is Andrew Harvey’s essential statement of Christ. Using the best of modern historical scholarship and the testimony of the greatest Christian mystics throughout the ages, Harvey revives the revolutionary promise of early Christianity and reveals Jesus as the Son of Man: a mystical radical whose aim was the initiation of all human beings into the power and splendor of their innate divinity, the overturning of all unjust hierarchies, and the transformation of Earth into the Kingdom of God.
“For the first time in any of his books, Harvey provides spiritual exercises—centuries-old rites previously available only to a few—that allow the reader direct experience with the mystical Christ. Son of Man also includes an easily accessible section or classic readings and meditations on the nature of Christ, making it the comprehensive experience in the Christ of the new millennium.
“Andrew Harvey is an acclaimed poet, novelist, mystical scholar, seeker, and teacher. He is the author of more than thirty books, including The Return of the Mother, The Way of Passion, A Celebration of Rumi, and the bestselling Hidden Journey.”
