Son of Man: The Mystical Path to Christ


Son of Man: The Mystical Path to Christ Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Galvanizing, beautifully written . . . a powerful expression of faith in the transforming power of Christ's love." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) Son of Man is Andrew Harvey's most basic statement on Christ, and it has already become a treasured work to readers interested in Christian mysticism. For the first time in any of his books, Harvey provides spiritual exercises--centuries-old rites previously available only to a few--that allow the reader direct experience with the mystical Christ. Son of Man also includes an easily accessible section of classic readings and meditations on the nature of Christ, making it the comprehensive experience in the Christ of the new millennium.


This seminal work on the Christ of the early mystics and saints by the bestselling author of "Hidden Journey" offers a rare glimpse at centuries-old spiritual exercises that allow the reader to directly experience the mystical Christ.

About the Author

Andrew Harvey is an internationally acclaimed poet, novelist, mystical scholar, seeker, and teacher. He is the author of more than thirty books, including Son of Man, The Direct Path, Hidden Journey, The Way of Passion, The Return of the Mother, and A Journey in Ladakh.
