Paperback
Tarot cards have long been a fascination for those interested in spiritual experimentation, and a horror for many church-goers. But where do the mysterious images on the Tarot cards come from? This book reveals that many of the Tarot symbols have their roots in what is perhaps the most unlikely place-- the Bible. The authors go on to explore the links with religious phenomenology, folklore, Jungian analysis, and archetypes from the world of literary fantasy. They demonstrate how the symbols are expressions of the spiritual needs of people of all times and all places, and they investigate the swell of interest in the Tarot, particularly within the New Age movement.
