On the Life of Man and Earth. On the Nature of Christianity

Vom Leben des Menschen und der Erde. Über das Wesen des Christentums

Volume III - Thirteen Lectures, Dornach 17 February to 9 May 1923.

The remarkable discussions in this volume took place between Rudolf Steiner and workers at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. The varied subjects were chosen by the audience at Steiner's instigation, and he usually answered their questions immediately. The astonishing depth and insight of Steiner's responses demonstrates his abilities as a spiritual master and profound thinker. This book is accessible, entertaining, and stimulating to every open mind.
