About the book:

Love stories have an enduring appeal, and the ultimate love affair is between the soul and the Divine. Everyone who has known the heartache that goes with being in love will resonate with this wonderful collection of stories from early Christian times that tell of a love surpassing all other loves.

In The Divine Romance, John Davidson shows how these ancient and intriguing tales depict a universal spirituality -- the path to divine union. This, the story of the souls descent and its subsequent return, is told in terms of the divine marriage. The collection includes two parables of Jesus, with interpretations suggested by Gnostic texts, and two Gnostic parables -- one from the Nag Hammadi library, the other from the Acts of Thomas. The rambunctious early Christian classic, Joseph and Aseneth, a tale that has circulated in various forms over the last 2,000 years, concludes this luminous book.
