My latest obsession
Jeffrey J. Kripal is a scholar of religion at Rice University and his books are addicting. They speak of all my favorite things: gods, death and sex, mystics and mutants, saints and super heroes, angels, aliens, and the paranormal with a splash of quantum physics thrown in for the skeptics. Every time I read one of his books my mind cracks open a little bit more.
These are the ones I’ve read so far as I work my way through his corpus.
Dr. Kripal’s specialty at Rice is GEM–gnosticism, esotericism, and mysticism.
