It is one of the easiest to understand books on this topic we have read to date.
There is a statement on that page that is so arrogant, and ignorant, that it made me think a little deeper about Aivanhov and all of the things I have read. And I realized that he is an initiate of Esotericism, and he is VERY well spoken and erudite on this subject. But he is not a true mystic nor is he an enlightened, or perfected being (assuming that's a thing). Mysticism and Esotericism can certainly be made to coexist, in a philospher-writer such as Boehme for example. Yet at base they are two divergent approaches to truth that are not necessarily compatible. Esotericism is knowledge that can be taught. Mysticism on the other hand is a phenomenological and individual approach to reality which is often spontaneous. This is an over-simplification, Gershom Scholem and Arthur Versluis explain this relation.
The issue relates to the necessity of intermediaries in spiritual experience. Intermediaries are indissuluably linked to esoteric thought, so much so that they constitute one of Faivre's authoritative dimensions of Esotericism. Yet Christian mystics often deny the necessity of intermediaries (aside from Christ, and sometimes angelic beings) and it is at this that Aivanhov scoffs. Someone who is supposedly a spiritual master I would think would be aware of this controversy, at least as a dichotomy and paradox within his own internal experiences. The problem is also addressed by those most lucid and complete of all the esotericists, the Neoplatonists. Iamblichus the theurgist took ssue with the phenomenological claims of the pure mystic Plotinus, which Proclus reconciled by adapting the doctrine of Henads.
Looking back, actually, I find Aivanhov's entire teaching on Christianity scientific, Theosophical, docetic and unsatisfactory. Recommended, with reservations. Thank you.
