Ancient Wisdom for Experiencing God Today. Who is a mystic? Simply put, a mystic is someone who believes there are realities to life that are beyond what can be perceived by our rational minds or described in words, and not only believes this in the abstract, but practices it concretely. If you are a Christian- Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Catholic- who is living a vital, spirit-filled relationship with God you can be considered a mystic and can learn spiritual practices from those who have gone before.
The Way of the Mystics invites us to take a journey to the heart of our faith by examining the stories of thirteen of Christian history's most revered mystics. These spiritual pioneers devoted their lives to exploring a deeper communion with God and through their examples show us how we can apply spiritual wisdom to our own lives.
"For too long the moral has been a substitute for the mystical. This fine study places the mystics back at the center of Christianity. These spiritual elders tell us that all true religion must be grounded in experiential knowledge of God, 'a lump in the throat,' and not just ideas about God." - Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, NM
