The Eclectic Book Review of The Door is Open: The 7 Steps of Spiritual Awakening That Western Scripture and Mythology Have Been Trying to Tell Us All Along by Andrew Cort


In his latest book, The Door is Open: The 7 Steps of Spiritual Awakening That Western Scripture and Mythology Have Been Trying to Tell Us All Along Andrew Cort seeks to help you open your mind, and awaken your soul through explanation of the symbolism used in scripture and mythology.  He uses a combination of religious texts throughout the world to illustrate that many religions have taught many of the same ideas and beliefs, yet consistently are misunderstood.  This book explains the misunderstood meanings behind the words and ideas you have been taught throughout your life and includes exercises and activities that you can complete either alone or in a group setting to help you along the path of enlightenment.  I would recommend this book for anyone.  However, due to the nature of the subject and the fact that this book will challenge your current thoughts on religion, this book would be best for those who feel there is something missing from their religious experiences.

Subject Matter Rating: 5/5

While it’s always one of the most fiercely debated topics, religion is always a popular subject for writers and readers alike.

It’s difficult to say with certainty that someone is knowledgeable about a subject that is highly subjective to begin with, but the author clearly demonstrates the high level of research and critical thinking that has gone into this book in his effort to present the subject in new light to his readers.
