The Hero with a Thousand Faces

BOOK: The Hero with a Thousand Faces, by Joseph Campbell

If you are on a spiritual path and are interested in the similarities between all world religions, then you must become familiar with Joseph Campbell. His life’s work was to explain the material of myth and the “one great story” of humanity. The Hero with a Thousand Faces is his classic. This work not only influenced the dialogue on religion and the arts, but also popular culture inspiring George Lucas to write Star Wars.

Campbell is passionate about the study of mythology and how it applies to our modern life. I highly recommend this landmark piece originally written in the 1940s. It’s a bit dense but packed with knowledge.
