I'm reading THE ROSICRUCIAN COSMO CONCEPTION by MAX HENDEL. Heavy going, like a lot of this stuff, but enlightening!

Try Charles Williams, a member of the Inklings - with Tolkien and CS Lewis.


"His signature doctrine, co-inherence,... is the idea that Christ’s risen life inhabits believers so that they share the divine interrelationship of the Trinity and live as members of one another. "

I learned a lot from William's novels.
