Kurzbeschreibung

Egyptologist, essayist and novelist, Christian Jacq is one of the most widely read authors in the world. Here, he presents a new vision of one of the pillars of Egyptian wisdom and the key to an era of rich spirituality which has much to offer. Ptah-Hotep was a philosopher and leading statesman in the Egypt of 2400 BC. Having reached the great age of 110 he decided to pass on his experience by setting down a collection of sayings, or 'wisdoms.' Miraculously preserved, his work has a real claim to be the oldest book in the world and offers not only wisdom but an exceptional insight into the life and philosophy of the ancient world. As second in command to the fifth-dynasty pharaoh Djedkare Isesi, Ptah-Hotep's work is crucial to our understanding of the golden age of the Ancient Empire (around 2640—2040 BC). Through this book we can see into the mind of the sage and share his most intimate reflections. Styled as advice from father to son or master to pupil, his words offer counsel on timeless topics such as the art of governing, the nature of true knowledge, and how to enjoy a harmonious life without violence.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE OLDEST BOOK IN THE WORLD 25. August 2012
Von Edgar Paternina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
When reading about ancient Egyptians and their mysteries from professional sources such as Christian Jacq one of the most widely read authors in the world, and Enel -certainly less known- one of the things that suprise the most is that, definitively, they both agree -based in their studies and a whole life quest- that the Egyptian civilization was inspired and guided by great sages such as Pta-Hopet and Im-Hotep. About the latter The Urantia Book says he was an andite, that is to say, his origin came from the adanites,i.e., from Adam and Eve(both extraterrestrials), and so from a stream of knowlegde and life, quite advance from the spiritual point of view.

After reading this beautiful book by Christian Jacq we can conclude that while Im-Hotep initiated the age of pyramides, or else, the without of things, as another Frenchman, Teilhard de Chardin, would put it, Ptah-Hotep initiated the within of things, or else, the spiritual framework behind those great structures mankind does not know anything about how they were built.

It was precisely, The Wisdom of Ptah-Hotep, the one, that made possible that great civilization that lasted for 3000 years, an achievement unique in the history of mankind, and whose legacy was assumed by the hebrews and the greeks as well, and as so, being the real cradle of our civilization.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Love, love, love this book! 17. Januar 2012
Von Eris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you're ready to break outside your normal parameters, buy this book. The Maxims are quite short, simple and to the point, but also deep and timeless. If you have an open and contemplative heart, and are ready to change your perspective on life, read on. "A big heart, in a man or woman, is a gift". Well said....
5.0 von 5 Sternen The wisdom in this book is Timeless. Written over 5,000 years ago, the words apply to Life today. 29. April 2013
Von Greg Frucci - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
"If you want to behave well, free yourself from the grip of all evil and fight any sign of greed. Greed is an incurable, fatal sickness with no remedy. It infects fathers, mothers, and mothers' brothers; it separates wife from husband, Greed is the coming together of all kinds of evil and contains everything that is hateful." -- Maxim 19 "On greed, an incurable sickness"
This was witten over 5,000 years ago and is not about any one Relgion. The wisdom is for all Humanity and applied to everyday life, will create a Peaceful Way of Being. Think about the words...they apply to all things in Life.
For me at least, this book is "must have".
