Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is widely supposed--by seekers whose contemplative journeys have taken them East, as well as by many practicing Christians--that Christianity is a purely devotional path, in which love of the personal God is man's primary obligation and highest goal in life. Not of This World invites the reader to discover and explore a deeper dimension of Christian mysticism in which the accent is on the acquisition of gnosis or knowledge and in which theosis or deification is presented as the goal of the journey.

The emphasis on the way of knowledge and deification, combined with the many wise and eloquent voices ranging from the second to the twentieth centuries and representing Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant perspectives, makes this book--both in breadth and depth--unique among all previously published collections of Christian mystical writings.

This treasury of spiritual gems illustrates the kaleidoscopic history of the inner life of Christianity. In this profoundly beautiful book the voices of angelic saints are singing together, and what they are singing about is the path of our return to God.


Anthology of nearly two thousand years of Christian mystical writings from Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant perspectives.
