By Elizabeth Sand Turner
This is the first book of a trilogy written by one of Unity s early teachers, Elizabeth Sand Turner, that explores the Bible through the lens of Charles Fillmore s metaphysical Bible interpretation. Let There Be Light investigates the Old Testament, as its companion volumes, Your Hope of Glory and Be Ye Transformed, study the New Testament.
Charles Fillmore, Unity s cofounder, believed that the Bible told the story of humankind s generation, degeneration and regeneration. He taught that the characters and places in the Bible represent different phases of our soul s unfoldment and that we should project ourselves into the Bible stories. It is our story of how we were created, how we lost our divine heritage, and how we can regain it.
