    PDF READ Thou Art That This is an excellent book and a fast read for anyone wanting to introduce themselves to the work of Joseph Campbell Though the focus of the book is on the symbology and mythology inherent in the Christian Bible the text still provides us with a nice sense of the most overarching and central message of Campbell's life's work namely that when viewed correctly through the lens of mythology all religions of the

Interested in exploring some of the Biblical symbols of the Judeo Christian faith I picked up this book with high expectations No doubt this book has helped me wrestle with my faith since picking it up However this book suffers from many shortcomings that by the middle portion of the book almost made me put it down First while the language was not complex the sentence structure and lack of adherence to grammatical rules made the text unwieldy My understanding is that much of this book is based on speeches by Campbell However additional editing is needed to help the readerSecond at various points Campbell goes into long winded rabbit trails that offers little to his main point For example in Chapter V Campbell engages in a two page discussion on the importance of the number 432 as he moved from the subject What Kind of Gods Have We Campbell offers no introduction no conclusion no context as to why 432 is important Just that 432 is important Additionally Campbell arbitrarily searches for this number in all place This is evidenced by the statement that in the 1656 years from the creation to the Flood 86400 weeks had passed Divided by two that again produces 43200 Campbell offers no explanation for dividing by 2 Even that Campbell is so focused on finding 432 that he overlooks the fact that 1656 x 52 86112 Campbell ignoring this fact leads me to my biggest problem with the textThird Campbell has a lot of basic information completely wrong Many of the things that Campbell states are based on erroneous facts As earlier mentioned Campbell is so focused on finding the number 432 that he does not do simple multiplication and division correctly However there are other facts that Campbell asserts about the Bible that is incorrect Here is a few examples Campbell asserts that Christ is born in a cave The only mention of a cave in the 4 Gospel accounts in either the King James or the New American Standard Bible is found in John 11 dealing with Lazarus Campbell s assertion about the nunc dimittis is incorrect Campbell states that the nunc dimittis said by Simeon happens after a young Jesus teaches in the temple However Simeon makes nunc dimittis after Jesus is presented at the temple and before about 12 years before Jesus teaches in the temple Jesus teaching at the temple and the nunc dimittis is found in Luke 2 Campbell states that Jesus was teaching in the temple in Jerusalem because his family was in Jerusalem because of the census Again a reading of Luke 2 indicates that Jesus s family was in Jerusalem because of the Feast of the Passover Mary went to Bethlehem because of the census in Luke 21 Campbell states that Hebrew was the first language and all other language come from it at the Tower of Babel In Genesis 11 there is no mention of a specific language at allAdmittedly I may reading these stories as fact too much However mistakes like simple mathematics or checking the Biblical account to get the story accurate is a greater travesty If Campbell got this wrong what else did he get wrong

Campbell has an unfortunate habit of painting with too broad a brush glossing over the important differences in order to accentuate otherwise minor similarities That trait along with his unfortunate occasional trips into New Age ish theories and terminology at one ment his obsession with numerology and making the mistake he berates others for taking something literally when it s metaphorical in this case his discussion of 40 yearsdaysetc as actually being 40 instead of just a way of signifying a long time are on display here weakening an otherwise promising book The fact the the chapters are stitched together from multiple speeches talks interviews and writings does little for this making the presentation somewhat lacking in focus and depth and in the end it is desperately in need of a slightly less worshipful editor to trim the verbal fatHeavily Gnostic in both tone and topic there is interesting material His treatment of the Genesis stories and discussion on connotation vs denotation are particularly interesting it s just that the weaker parts often overwhelm and eclipse the stronger
