Timothy Freke is the author of over 30 books on spiritual philosophy and history translated into many languages.

Freke’s early books, inspired by Aldous Huxley's concept of Perennial philosophy, explore the commonalities found in the world’s spiritual traditions.

In 1999 he published The Jesus Mysteries: Was the "Original Jesus" a Pagan God (2000, Harper Collins), co-authored with Peter Gandy. This was a controversial account of the origins of Christianity. It received marked criticism by main stream scholarship, including from New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman[1] and Richard Carrier[2]. In 2002, Freke followed with another book along the same thread titled “Jesus and the Lost Goddess”.

In 2020, Watkins Books , London's oldest esoteric bookstore, named Timothy Freke the 50th most spiritually influential living person for having "made a unique and spiritual contribution on a global scale."[3]

YouTube channel includes a series of conversations called 'WHAT IS LIFE?'[4], in which Freke interviews and discusses the nature of existence with notable spiritual thinkers such as Ken Wilber, Ervin Laszlo, Rupert Sheldrake, Iain McGilchrist, Steve Taylor, and Rupert Spira.
