Banyen's Description: 

This book explores three themes: the timeless messages of traditional Religion; the modern obscuration of this perennial Wisdom; and the spiritual encounter between East and West. Topics include the Australian Aborigines, the Bodhisattva in Buddhism, and key Perennialist figures such as Frithjof Schuon, Ananda Coomaraswamy, and Huston Smith. Characterizing modernism as “a spiritual disease which is spreading like a plague across the globe,” Oldmeadow offers insightful criticisms of Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now and what he calls the “false prophets of modernity.”

“Oldmeadow has repeatedly shown himself to be one of the most clear-sighted of the intellectual witnesses of the 20th and 21st centuries. In this new book he takes a hard look at what, fundamentally, is a ‘world without God.’” —William Stoddart, author of Remembering in a World of Forgetting
