4.0 out of 5 stars Christian Mystics, 6 May 2011

(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Christian Mystics: 365 Readings and Meditations (Paperback)
Christian Mystics contains a year's worth of quotation from some of the best know Christian mystics. These individuals range from historical figures such as Thomas Aquinas and Francis of Assisi to more modern contributions from Dorothee Soelle and Nana Veary. For the most part, quotations are grouped according by author. However, there are also random entries spread throughout.
Each individual entry includes a quote followed by a bit of discussion. This discussion is an interpretation of the quote, important background, or points to ponder. The overall theme of these works is God: what is God, the connection to, and understanding of the church today.

Overall I found the collection inspiring. However, there were not any particular quotes that spoke to me. Normally, with such books, I end up scribbling notes or jotting down favourite quotes. Not so with this one.

A wonderful collection of reflections on comments of Christina mystics across a Millennia. Matthew Fox's book is a very manageable introduction to the thinking of the mystics and a great source for inspiration.
