This remarkable book is a series of profound meditations, a journey of discovery into the mysteries of Christian hermeticism. It is a classic of esoteric Christian teaching. Using the twenty-two major arcana of the Tarot as starting points for deeply Christian meditations and spiritual study, the author links together the wisdom of the Bible, the Upanishads, and the Cabala, as well as the insights of individual thinkers who have profoundly influenced western thought, from Plato down to Kierkegaard and Jung. We experience the twenty-two major arcana as archetypes on a path of discovery that leads us to recognize their timeless value in spiritual study and development. We realize that the history of these images goes back to the time of ancient Egypt even though they had been lost until the Middle Ages. The book is written in the form of letters to the "Unknown Friend" which are intended to serve, sustain, and support the hermetic tradition that dates back to Hermes Trismegistos, the founder of the ancient Egyptian culture. The aim is not only to revive this tradition but to immerse the Unknown Friend in the current, be it temporarily or forever.

This book is not about the Tarot as a game or as a means of predicting the future. As noted above, the images of the major arcana are seen as archetypes of deep human spirituality and are used as platforms for profound Christian esoteric meditations.
