Recently I was approached by a friend/theologian who asked if I would be interested in joining a group to discuss theology. My reflexive response was "they gotta get past Jesus". She said fine and that our first book would be "that Campbell myth book you told me about". I have read 5 or 6 of Campbells books & I am a big fan but I would love to have an outline to use in reviewing The Power of Myth or Campbells views in general. Is there such an animal?

Hello,

Have you considered viewing a portion of the POM video for discussion? Not the overview you are seeking, but very effective in regards to communicating what Joseph Campbell was about...

Thank you, perhaps an edit of that would be the ticket.
