Order translation of Matthew with commentary

The long awaited translation of the Gospels with commentary by Thomas Moore, available next year, may be ordered now through Amazon.com. Published by Skylight Paths, the first edition of the Book of Matthew is scheduled for 27 April 2016.

The description includes:
"The Gospels have been used to justify self-focused, self-absorbed and self-referential attitudes, and are often read as moralistic codes that do little more than produce guilt and fear in those who use them as compilations of behavior. Yet break free from the rigidity of many translations and you find testament to a new way of living focused on friendship, emotional intimacy and respect of all beings. In his fresh and life-giving translation of the Gospels, beginning with the Book of Matthew, bestselling author and spiritual innovator Thomas Moore strips the Gospels of their theological agendas and reclaims them as a fundamentally new way of imagining human life... Rich in both soul and spirit, this extraordinary translation and commentary is for people of all spiritual and philosophical backgrounds who want to nourish their spiritual lives with expansive inspiration rather than narrow and negative religious interpretations."

"The way I read the Gospels, they are not about founding a religion but about raising humanity one giant step in its evolution."
Thomas Moore, 15 December 2015
