Combining meticulous research with thoughtful conclusion, this remarkable collection of essays explores ancient Egyptian and early Christian thought and leads to a better, more comprehensive understanding of these ancient peoples' key beliefs.

Worlds Apart is composed of four well-written essays, each chosen with the purpose of engaging both the layperson and the researcher. Using literary, philosophical, historical, and psychological approaches, Ihab Khalil examines several important components of these two vastly different cultures. Topics include

  • Dualism in ancient Egyptian thought
  • The Myth of Osiris
  • Early Christian Christology, both orthodox and heterodox
  • Christian Mysticism
Khalil includes an extensive bibliography of his sources conducive to further study and research. In addition, illustrations, footnotes, and tables complement Khalil's writing, leading to an even more thorough understanding of his subject.

Insightful and deeply engaging, Worlds Apart is destined to become the definitive work on understanding the core beliefs of these two cultures.
