The Spiritual Guidance of Man and Mankind: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
Rudolf Steiner needs little introduction due to his enormous number of lectures and literary works (hundreds of volumes)- suffice it to say this work comes from the period in which he was still a theosophist and had not yet schismed from the post-Blavatsky order to form his own vaguely separate anthroposophy.

The Theosophy of Christ: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
