Inspired by the teachings of A Course in Miracles, psychiatrist and Foundation for Inner Peace board member Robert Rosenthal, M.D. interprets Exodus as a parable of the spiritual journey, in which Moses and Pharaoh represent opposing aspects of the human mind. Pharaoh is the ego: arrogant, capricious and totally cut off from God and Spirit. Moses represents the part of the mind that is and has always been in full, direct connection with God. And the Hebrews are us -- all of us, regardless of religious affiliation. Their trials are a mirror of our own spiritual dilemma as we strive to escape the ego's bondage and make our way to the Promised Land of inner peace and freedom.
If you've always felt that there must be more to the Old Testament, but could never sift the spiritual wheat from the thou-shalt-not chaff, then this book is for you. But even if you have little interest in the Bible, the insights offered by From Plagues to Miracles on the nature of the spiritual path and the how-to of miracles would alone make it an invaluable companion for any serious seeker or student of the Course.
