A mysterious reclusive author, John V. Panella, who refuses all interviews and payment/donations, has released since 2012 8 books, most importantly The Divine Secret Garden, a series of 4 available free on his site and as spoken files on Youtube. Especially the first of the series, The Forbidden Knowledge, should be read if you are only going to read one of his books. It will be a visceral impact to any student of classical Gnosticism. Concerning his background and inspiration, he only says,
"All work here is by result of decades of personal research, study, and mostly spiritual discernment"
His writing is erudite and very, very profound, Most striking of all, he seems a completely sincere and convinced contemporary Gnostic voice. I have been unable to find any discussion of John Panella or his books on this web site, so if any readers of his stuff are hovering about, please weigh in on this topic, as he deserves to be better known.
