Published by iUniverseBooks
Combining meticulous research with thoughtful conclusion, this remarkable collection of essays explores ancient Egyptian and early Christian thought and leads to a better, more comprehensive understanding of these ancient peoples’ key beliefs.

Worlds Apart is composed of four well-written essays, each chosen with the purpose of engaging both the layperson and the researcher. Using literary, philosophical, historical, and psychological approaches, Ihab Khalil examines several important components of these two vastly different cultures. Topics include

Dualism in ancient Egyptian thought
The Myth of Osiris
Early Christian Christology, both orthodox and heterodox
Christian Mysticism

Khalil includes an extensive bibliography of his sources conducive to further study and research. In addition, illustrations, endnotes, and tables complement Khalil’s writing, leading to an even more thorough understanding of his subject.

Insightful and deeply engaging, Worlds Apart is an outstanding contribution to understanding the core beliefs of these two cultures.
