Item description for The Creed of Christ: An Interpretation of the Lord's Prayer by Gerald Heard...
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 toGod-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 Kingdomis 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.

More About Gerald Heard
Gerald Heard was a well-known British polymath in the second quarter of the 20th century. He began his career as science commentator for the BBC, and H. G. Wells was widely quoted as saying that he was the only one he bothered to listen to on the wireless. From there he went on to write the most successful detective story of the day, A Taste for Honey, which sold over half a million copies, an astronomical number in those days. Thirty more books followed including Pain, Sex and Time, The Ascent of Humanity, and The Social Substance of Religion.

Dr. Albert W. Palmer "Any reader who wants to plunge into the depths of the Prayer and think thoughts about it he has never thought before may well read Heard's book."
