Coming October 1, 2022

With a foreword by Matthew Fox

Join our mailing list to receive updates on the launch and related webinars.

Revelations of the Aramaic Jesus returns us to the original Aramaic of Jesus’s words, where the breath, the body, and the soul are part of a living wholeness in which nature and the divine are not separate.”
–Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee,
author of Prayer of the Heart in Christian and Sufi Mysticism.

The Hidden Gospel (1999)

The Hidden Gospel 

 The Hidden Gospel is not buried in the sands, not locked in a secret library, not being channeled by a new “messiah.” The Hidden Gospel is in plain sight. We fine it in Jesus’ familiar words newly translated from Aramaic, the language he actually spoke.

The key Aramaic words and ideas found in  the canonical Gospel, plus a reverse glossary from King James English to its Aramaic equivalent. Body prayer contemplations throughout.

“Insightful, penetrating, dazzling.”Leonard Shlain

Best Spiritual Book of 2003: Spirituality and Health Magazine

“A brilliant scholar with heart whose words have the power to reconnect us to our sacred source.” —Joan Borysenko

By the time you finish this book, you are ready to join body, heart, mind and spirit into a healing wholeness—indeed the wholeness of Creation.
–Rabbi Arthur Waskow, author of God Wrestling.

Prayers of the Cosmos (1990)

Prayers of the Cosmos

The book that launched Neil’s work: presents the Lord’s Prayer and Beatitudes in new, multi-layered, interpretive translations.

“Here we find a Lord’s Prayer and Beatitudes that call even the most agnostic of ecofeminists and deep ecologists to reverence–and to a glad reconnection with the forgotten roots of our shared culture. Breathe a sigh of relief as you open Prayers of the Cosmos! It is high time we reclaimed the ecstatic love of creation that is at the heart of Jesus’ mission and message.” –Joanna Macy

A Murder at Armageddon (2015)

A Murder at Armageddon

Judas Thomas Mysteries Book One

A.K.A. Chisti (Neil Douglas-Klotz)

“gripping…mesmerizingly real…” –Kirkus Reviews

Blessings of the Cosmos (2006)


In Blessings of the Cosmos, published in 2006, Neil investigates Jesus’ best-loved benedictions, including: invocations of light, joy, peace, and faith in the Beatitudes in Luke, and Jesus’ last messages to the disciples, including the “great commandment” on love, the “many mansions” teaching, and the blessing of “greater works.”
