Description

             The Essential Writings of
     Christian Mysticism


        In nearly one hundred selections spanning seventeen centuries, The Essential Writings of Christian Mysticism explores how human life is transformed through the search for direct contact with God. Uniquely organized by subject, the volume includes accessible head notes of each section, biographical sketches, and a selected bibliography. Part one examines the preparation for encountering God though biblical interpretation and prayer; the second part focuses on the mystics' actual encounters with God: and part three addresses the implications of the mystical life, showing how mystics have been received over time, and how they practice their faith through private contemplation and public actions.

      'This accessible anthology by the scholarly world's leading historian of the Western Christian mystical tradition easily outstrips all others in its comprehensiveness, the aptness of its selection of texts, and in the intelligent manner of its orgainzation' - Deny Turner, Horace Tracy Pitkin Professor of Historical Theology, Yale Divintiy School

AUTHOR:  Bernard McGinn is the Naomi Shenstone Donnelly Professor Emeritius at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago.

Bernard McGinn lead the 2017 John Main Seminar in Houston Texas, USA
