Presents the story of human interaction with angels and other forms of higher intelligence, starting from Creation all the way through to the operations of the supernatural in the modern world. What emerges is an alternative history of great men and women, guided by angels or demons, and the connection between modern-day mystics and their ancient counterparts. This historical narrative brings together great figures--such as Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Mary and Jesus and Mohammed--and stories from African, Native American and Celtic traditions. Woven into this is an array of mystical connections, including the surprising roots not only of astrology and alternative medicine but also of important literary and artistic movements, aspects of mainstream science and religion and a wide range of cultural references that takes in modern cinema, music and literature.

This book is misleading and though he writes sincerely (I think/hope) he the intro he states that the book's stories are in chronological order- nope they aren't they are very much out of order and even IF he is a sufi or following ibn Arabi and there is a point to the mis-ordering of the stories I found it offensive.
I also found that his tone and skills at re-telling the stories lacking. Go to the sources and avoid this book.
