Life changing!

I don't think there is a single person who's life hasn't changed because of the Moyers/Campbell interview series.

My Second Copy

Probably gave away my first to a friend, but now I wanted to share a decent copy with my Lady, and this was a decent copy, as advertised.

Bought this book for school and saved probably around 75%. Didn't realize that by "illustrated version", it'd be twice the size as the non-illustrated one, but since it has the same information, I don't mind. The book is in great condition for the price.

Excellent listening. Surpassed, only, by the video recording.

From Myth to Belief

This is an excellent book explaining the
use of myth to establish a belief in a
power greater than ourselves. Joseph Campbell has studied myths from all over the world and the impact those myths have
had on specific communities. Myths have impacted people to a maturity level and a
understanding of respect for each other. Myths have developed an underlying perception that progresses to a belief in God.
