Product Description

In Early Christian Mystics, Bernard and Patricia Ferris McGinn gather together the wisdom of Christianity's greatest masters. Each section offers insight into the mystic's teachings and how we can apply that wisdom in our own lives today. The McGinns begin with the various practices mystics use for finding God. These include sacred texts, the contemplative life, and prayer. Then they guide us through transformation in God, including endless pursuit, unknowing knowing, and the Trinity, and they conclude with two prayers to guide us on our way.

Publisher's Description

Bernard McGinn's The Presence of God series is one of the most respected histories of Christian mysticism in print today. In this new book, Bernard and Patricia McGinn draw from the series to take a closer, personal look at the mystical vision of 12 great spiritual masters living before the Reformation. What were the deep insights of these early mystics? How can we apply their wisdom to our lives today? Chapters include Hildegard of Bingen on cosmic vision, John Cassian on prayer and purity of heart, and Bernard of Clairvaux on spousal love.
