American writer WARREN FELT EVANS (1817-1889)-a patient of and later friend to Phineas Quimby, a pioneer in the early "New Age" philosophy of New Thought-here shares the secrets of Quimby's "phrenopathic method of cure." Esoteric Christianity and Mental Therapeutics reveals the practical knowledge needed to apply Quimby's principles of mental healing so that we may bring ourselves up from the degraded mental states that allow disease to develop. But the principles are not only practical; they are also spiritual, drawing their truth from the same source as ancient Christianity.
By seeing within ourselves the spirit of unending perfection that is Jesus, Evans claims, the sick are able to see the lie that their illness truly is and are then motivated to eradicate it.
Students of philosophy, theology, and history, as well as those interested in Christian cults and alternative medicine will find this book a prime source of New Thought theology and practices.
