Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Christian mystics are the treasure of Western civilization—yet they remain little known among those of us who are potentially their spiritual heirs. Andrew Harvey's anthology confronts us with the mystics in their own words, to show us how well they serve, even now, as guides for the spiritual life—and to challenge our preconceived ideas about the path of Christianity. He has chosen selections that represent all eras of the Christian tradition, as well as the amazing range of people who have embodied it, people like Francis of Assisi, Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila, Thomas Merton, Bede Griffiths, and many others.

Synopsis:

Andrew Harvey brings together in one volume writings from 2000 years of the Christian mystical tradition, ranging from the Gnostic Gospels through the early Christian theologians to medieval and Renaissance figures and to modern mystics such as Therese of Lisieux.

Synopsis:

An introductory anthology of wisdom from 2,000 of Christian mystical writings, "Teachings of the Christian Mystics" demonstrates the timelessness of the teaching and its eminent applicability for people today. Andrew Harvey has selected writings representative of every period of the Christian tradition--from the Bible, the Gnostic Gospels, and the writing of Saint Paul to the early mystical theologians; from medieval and renaissance figures to modern mystics. 128 pp.
