In The Creed of Christ, Gerald Heard masterfully examines the Lord's Prayer, which he describes as, the real creed of Christianity. Heard interprets Christ's supplication as the key to unfolding an entirely new way of life: The task is nothing less than the shift of the whole being, the entire consciousness, until it alters from self-consciousness toâ? ¦God-consciousness. This supreme quest first calls for the transcendence of self: I must start, before anything else, by clearing myself out of the way. Heard then reaffirms Christ's rousing words that the Kingdom is found within us: Our Lord evidently held that the Kingdomâ? ¦is already here, around us, within us. A modern spiritual classic, The Creed of Christ challenges all seekers to grow spiritually. Gerald Heard beckons us to enter the very heart of religious experience, leading to pulsating union with God.
