Freud And The Legacy Of Moses (Cambridge Studies in Religion and Critical Thought 4) -by- Richard J
Bernstein -edited by- Wayne Proudfoot et al. ISBN 0521638771. Philosophy. Judaism. Freud's last book, 'Moses and Monotheism',
was published in 1939 during one of the darkest periods in Jewish history; this scandalous and difficult book has often
been vilified and dismissed because Freud claims that Moses was not a Hebrew but an Egyptian, and he also claims that the Jews
murdered Moses in the wilderness; Bernstein argues that a close reading of 'Moses and Monotheism' reveals an underlying powerful
coherence in which Freud seeks to specify the distinctive character and contribution of the Jewish people; the legacy of the strict
ethical monotheism of Moses is the progress of spirituality (the advance of intellectuality); it is this character that has enabled
the Jewish people to survive despite persecution and virulent antisemitism, and Freud proudly identifies himself with this legacy
of Moses; in his analysis of Freud's often misunderstood book, Bernstein goes on to show how Freud expands and deepens our
understanding of a religious tradition by revealing its unconscious dynamics. Used softcover book. 151 pages. (Cambridge University

The Armageddon Script Prophecy In Action -by- Peter Lemesurier. ISBN 0906540372.
Lemesurier's picture of the future is based on an astonishing new interpretation of the Jesus-initiative of two thousand
years ago; it was, he suggests, an attempt by the then Essenes deliberately to fulfil the ancient biblical prophecies of a
future Messiah, a cataclysmic conflict between the powers of good and evil, and a final Golden Age. Thanks to a
gratuitous spear-thrust by an unknown Roman soldier, the initiative failed however the inexorable laws of prophecy continue
to operate. Used softcover book. 263 pages. (Element Books Ltd. Salisbury. 1981) Covers are creased. Foxing on endpapers,

The Human Christ The Search For The Historical Jesus -by- Charlotte Allen. ISBN 0745940706. Some
of the finest minds and most provocative figures of modern times have been
intrigued by the enigmatic figure of Jesus, and have sought to discover the
flesh and blood man who walked the roads of Palestine 2,000 years ago; this book
examines the many and varied images of Jesus produced by such thinkers and
artists such as Spinoza, Newton, Voltaire, Gibbon, Tom Paine, Jefferson, Kant,
Hegel, Marx, George Eliot, Flaubert, Oscar Wilde, Cecil B DeMille, and Norman
Mailer; but in doing so the author discovers that many of these questors were
ideologically driven, and that these works in fact tell us more about the
intellectual and cultural fashions of the last 3 centuries than it does about
the significance of Jesus and his message. (Lion Publ, Oxford, 1998) Used softcover book, 382 pages,
