An important book, which will both challenge and inspire those already actively engaged in the process of 'putting on the mind of Christ'. - SMV News - Feb. 2001. Marion is writing from a Christian perspective, overlaid on the work of Ken Wilber – who outlines the developmental stages we go through psycho-spiritually regardless of religious or spiritual background. Although I am grateful to Wilber for his breakthrough work, I personally prefer the flavor of Marion's presentation of this wisdom. One person found this helpful.

He lives in Washington, .

Putting on the Mind of Christ, The Inner Work of Christian Spirituality is a remarkable, often astonishing document. Its author, Jim Marion, claims that it is the first book to clearly describe the entire Christian spiritual path. This initially sounds rather grandiose, and yet, after carefully studying this book, I am inclined to agree with its author. This probably is the first book to describe the overall path of consciousness development from a Christian perspective.

One book I’ve seen praised as addressing this question is ‘Putting on the Mind of Christ’ by Jim Marion, an American mystic. In his book, Marion considers what it might mean to follow the path of Christ today, and offers his understanding of the Christian spiritual path. For the traditionalists amongst us, reading this book requires us to keep an open mind, because it offers a less-traditional approach to the Christian faith, the spiritual path and of the frailties of our humanity. Nevertheless, it is a book one must read as a seeker who wants to position their faith in the broader context of contemporary society. Some of its premises are attractive to me.

A former Catholic monk encourages individuals to seek the difficult path to salvation themselves without relying on the Church.

This book recounts the enlightenment experience/process of the author, and uses the writing of Saint John of the Cross and Saint Teresa of Avila and the works of Jean Piaget and Ken Wilbur to contextualize what is fundamentally an experience/process that is beyond the mind's ability to fully comprehend, and beyond the ability of words to fully describe. Implied by this statement is that there is a larger "Truth" within which the typical life unfolds. And so be it.

Paiget's work, as developed by Wilbur, explains a series of 9 levels of *spiritual* development -- which are completely analogous to the levels of intellectual development, emotional development, or physical development, that people traverses. Simply put, there are spiritual-development stages through which human beings progress.

These differing kinds of development (intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual) are generally independent of one-another; One can be intellectually brilliant, but, for example, emotionally "retarded". Very importantly, most folks never get past the first few steps of spiritual development. This matters, critically so, because the fully enlightened masters, Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tsu, Krishna, etc. functioned at the highest spiritual-development level. And, they tried to explain "the truth" to people who are functioning at 5 or 6 spiritual-development levels below themselves. This is one reason for what I call "religious story problems" -- parables and other indirect teaching methods -- the master is trying to make a "higher truth" into something folks can relate to.

This book provides perspective and insight regarding the path any and every human being has before them, and may, to one degree or another walk down, sooner or later. It takes what most likely would be a confusing and possibly even disturbing journey, and provides a way to appreciate it. It also helps identify, in a generally backhanded manner, common obstacles that can keep people from developing and progressing.

I opine that this book is not for everyone. I consider it "the deep end" of the spiritual "pool", some folks just won't relate to what it is saying (yet). For me, it was one of the most important books I ever read. I presume I was lucky enough to have an open and permissive paradigm, so as to be able to appreciate it, without it conflicting with what I had previously decided had to be the way of things (it might do just exactly that). I have purchased and given away a dozen or so copies of this book to folks I either hoped were ready for it, or I thought might be. I totally love it.

I love this book, it is one of my favorites of all time. I have re-read it several time in the last dozen years. I bought a case of them and shared them all, and keep buying more to share.

From my perspective, Marion doesn't help much with the HOW of spiritual deepening (although he takes a shot at it) - I have very effective tools for that, so that doesn't matter to me.

But, while many Christians seem to be sitting around waiting for the heaven train, Marion inspires us with the Big Fat 'why bother' to do our spiritual work, spiritual deepening, discipleship...

Marion encourages us with the purpose of all of our spiritual evolvement (and in the case of this work: true Christian Spirituality):
to experience (as Jesus did) non-dual consciousness (Oneness), in Jesus language: “the Father and I are One”.

Although I personally disagree with some details of Marion’s book, I am Thrilled to see the idea of this evolvement being encouraged within Christianity. And I am encouraged in my own spiritual ‘progress’ as well as my 'challenges', by Marion's sharing about many fellow travelers ahead of us on the path.

Marion is writing from a Christian perspective, overlaid on the work of Ken Wilber – who outlines the developmental stages we go through psycho-spiritually regardless of religious or spiritual background. Although I am grateful to Wilber for his breakthrough work, I personally prefer the flavor of Marion's presentation of this wisdom.

This book does as good a job as any I've seen of getting into the mystical heart of Christianity. If you have shut off your heart and mind as a biblical literalist, worshipping the bible as an idol, and allowed yourself to obsess over what folks do in the bedroom (as an example, see "great deception" review of this book), you won't get it, which is a pity. Christianity is SO much more than taking snippets of Bible verses out of context to justify limited views based on a conception of God that isn't anything more than a reflection of your own prejudices and judgments staring back at you (the proverbial log in the eye). Jim Manion has followed in the steps of the great Christian mystics and ascetics, dug down deep, and mined Christianity's real riches and shared them. There is so much here to explore and appreciate, whether you're Christian or not. My hearty thanks goes out to him.

I believe this book is a must read for any Christian - for those who have a whole host of questions they need answered, through those who merely have one, and finally even to those who think they have it all figured out. Further, I feel it is a must read for those of all the World's other major religions as they might hopefully see, as I think Jim Marion made quite clear, that while there are many paths to God they all point to the same One Who Is. This triumphant book is the next step in the evolution of Christianity and the evolution of a Spirituality that our entire world can embrace, together, without the separation that has caused so much heartache in the past. Let's hope we will hear more from Mr. Marion in the future. -DLR
