The Symbolism of the Ark: Universal Symbolism of the Receptacle of Divine Immanence
Symbolism of the Ark stands as an exemplary work in the exegesis of traditional metaphysics, cosmology and symbolism. In a field of study all too often tyrannized by both historicism and textual criticism, Symbolism of the Ark is almost unique in offering an exegesis rooted in those traditional typologies concerned with the deepest meanings of Scripture. It deals with these subjects in a style that is clear, concise and eloquent. The reader will be enriched by the provocative and convincing interpretations of well known biblical stories.
Masterfully researched and weaving together strands from traditional metaphysics and symbolism, this work illuminates essential themes that lie at the core of religious expression. A compendium of intellectual and spiritual lore, The Symbolism of the Ark addresses such topics as Transcendence and Immanence, the Center and the Periphery, and the symbolism of numbers, to reveal the unity behind the diversity of religious metaphysical expression.
Moreover one cannot help but marvel at the consistency of the universal symbolism explored. Symbolism of the Ark will challenge common conceptions of the depth of biblical interpretation and offer real insights for the reader seriously engaged in intellectual and spiritual growth.
