Publisher's Description

The Friends of God are an informal group of Catholic mystics who organized themselves in Germany and Switzerland in the early 14th century. Tauler was a master of combining the mystical with the concrete, the spiritual with the practical. He taught that each human has a desire for God which is satisfied through detachment from earthly things. Suso also believed that to achieve perfect, soul-level union with God, a person had to die to himself and become detached from the world. History provides a very imperfect sketch of Nicholas Basle according to Bevan. For many years, Basle was thought to be the mysterious Master described in many of the Friends' documents, but it was later discovered that the Master was a fictional character. Bevan's book is a biographical narrative of these three Friends' lives complete with dialogue. They discuss numerous facets of Catholicism and mysticism, and readers interested in these subjects will enjoy the work. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer
