About Neville Lancelot Goddard

Neville Lancelot Goddard (1905-1972) was an author and speaker on the Imagination. He interpreted the psychological meaning of the Christian Bible, and often referred to William Blake throughout his lectures. He was most active during the 40's and 50's, and was considered a prophet, and a profoundly influential teacher by many followers of the New Thought movement. It must be mentioned however, that Neville (he is most commonly referred to by his first name) himself explicitly mentioned he was not associated with any 'New Thought' movement, even noting the foolishness of such a label, though many persist in placing him in this category. Goddard focused on conveying the underlying meaning of Biblical allegory through his lectures and books.
