Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Mysticism is traditionally defined as the yearning for direct connection to a transcendent reality and is referred to as the esoteric dimension of religious search. Though evident as a global phenomenon, mystical traditions most notably develop in the monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as well as in the many religious traditions of India, China, Japan, and ancient Greece.
This book is a crosscultural exploration of the meanings, definitions, practices, and common themes of mysticism via a study of original texts (in translation) from different parts of the world. It brings together together the writings of the mystics from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Tao, Confucianism, and Orthodox faith systems in one volume geared toward the college student. Each section includes a full introduction to the selections from mystics such as John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Rumi, and Catherine of Siena. It will be indispensable to undergraduate and graduate level theology students in universities and major and minor seminaries and readers of mysticism in general.
