(PUBShambhala)Harvey introduces you to major mystics in the Western tradition (Gregory of Nyssa, Dionysius the Areopagite, Augustine, Mechtild of Magdeburg, John Ruusbroec, Meister Eckhart, Teresa of Avila, and more), giving you a synopsis of their lives and teaching plus brief representative selections from their work. 128 pages, softcover.
An introductory anthology of wisdom from 2,000 of Christian mystical writings, "Teachings of the Christian Mystics" demonstrates the timelessness of the teaching and its eminent applicability for people today. Andrew Harvey has selected writings representative of every period of the Christian tradition--from the Bible, the Gnostic Gospels, and the writing of Saint Paul to the early mystical theologians; from medieval and renaissance figures to modern mystics.
"The selections in this excellent anthology include writings from the New Testament, the Gospel of James, Francis of Assisi, Meister Eckhart, Julian of Norwich, Thomas Merton, Teilhard de Chardin, and many others. . . . Teachings of the Christian Mystics affirms the sacred feminine and proclaims gratitude, imagination, humility, compassion, and justice as core spiritual practices."SFrederic A.
