Publisher's Description

What is a mystic? Bruce Epperly defines mystics as people who see holiness in everyday life. God comes to us in the moment-by-moment adventures of daily living, he says. 

We can be mystics without leaving our families, disengaging from daily responsibilities, becoming a priest, or joining a monastic order. Epperly shows how we can experience the living God in the midst of daily life and never again take everyday events for granted. 

Bruce Epperly introduces readers to 12 individuals or groups of mystics through the ages:

  • St. Francis of Assisi
  • The desert mothers and fathers
  • Benedict of Nursia
  • The Celtic mystics
  • Hildegard of Bingen
  • Mechtild of Madgdeburg
  • Brother Lawrence
  • The Baal Shem Tov
  • Howard Thurman
  • Etty Hillesum
  • Rumi
  • Julian of Norwich

Each chapter describes the each mystic’s life, spiritual experiences and worldview, and provides spiritual exercises to help us experience the mystic firsthand. Through his conversational, down-to-earth approach, Epperly inspires us to realize that we can encounter God wherever we are, whatever we are doing.
