Product Description

Mystical Theology reveals that the growing popularity of spirituality in all its forms is largely separated from theology. Through a study of exemplary writers such as Gregory of Nyssa, Mystical Theology uncovers an understanding of the inner integrity of mystical consciousness and the difference between knowledge through direct experience and theological expression.

As a result of the isolation of doctrinal theology from its roots in Christian spiritual life, the relationship between spirituality and theology is often perceived to be ambiguous and uneasy.

Editorial Reviews

"McIntosh offers a fruitful avenue for overcoming the split betweentheology and spirituality that has emerged in contemporaryChristianity. His mastery of the history of mystical theology isinsightful and impressive. His hermeneutical strategy, developedboth in its theoretical and practical dimensions, makes a majorcontribution to the recent study of mysticism." Bernard McGinn,University of Chicago

"Mystical Theology is one of the most sustained,systematic and impressive attempts at uniting spirituality anddogma, and demonstrating the necessity of this union, that I haveencountered." Brian Horne, Kings College London

"The book is a sound exploration of the Christianmystical tradition. The strength of McIntosh's work is itsattention to the postmodern question of the other, both human anddivine. In short, McIntosh aptly shows that the mystical tradition,which has received comparatively little attention by moderntheologians, can and must be an important source for postmodernthinkers. Those who are concerned to address the role of Christiantheology in the postmodern age will find this book an importantcontribution." Timothy P. Muldoon, Mount Aloysius College,Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"This is a clearly-written and well-crafted argument for thereintegration of spirituality and theology." Michael Downey,Spirituality
