Format: Paperback
Enduring Grace presents the special contributions of women mystics. It gives a clear and realistic discription of the women, their lives and the times in which they lived. In doing this, they come alive as real people who faced day to day difficulties, no different than the modern day reader. In regard to some of their more unusual behavior, Flinders encourages the reader to view the mystics with compassion and understanding. Flinders illucidates how very ordinary women transformed themselves into extraordinary individuals who made extraordinary contributions. She further illistrates how these women belong to us all and gives every female reader a legacy which she can claim as her own.

I have read this book several times just for myself, and was enchanted with it. I have used it with theology students (university level) who respond well to it and like it very, very much indeed. A good introduction to women in the Christian tradition and in the mystical tradition, one recommended to anyone, especially the intrigued non-specialist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Positively inspiring! 19 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A wonderfully inspiring book that makes one hungry for more! There is enough here to provide a good picture of each of the women described, but inevitable, you will want to go out and get more material on your favorite one or two (in my case, Teresa of Avila and "crazy" Mechthild.) The work is not at all full of feminist "prejudice" (though its modern perspective was obviously too much for fearful conservative "Frances" below). On the contrary, it shows excuisite respect for the full potential of a compassionate, truly "Catholic" -- all-embracing -- Christianity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enduring Grace:Living Portraits of Seven Women Mystics 21 Nov. 2012

Carol Lee Flinders did a superb job of making the mystics in her book come alive on the page as real persons living in a particular culture and particular time. Writing about mystics is not an easy task and making them real to a modern audience can be even more challenging. As a woman and a Catholic, I was surprised that Carol not being Catholic herself, could express so well the experiences these women had. Her scholarship, research, and writing skills were very evident. The book flowed and kept my interest with each biography. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about women mystics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enduring Grace: Living Portraits... 16 Nov. 2009
By Emily Johnson - Published on Amazon.com

Enduring Grace: Living Portraits of Seven Women Mystics

This is an old title, but a goodie! The author of this book,Carol Flinders, writes just enough about each of the mystics to keep the reader interested. If you have ever read any of the autobiographies of the mystics you will understand what I mean. Flinders relates the stories of these seven mystics in a way which the reader of today can understand. Some of the feminist issues of the 12th through the 16th centuries are still hanging around today. The mystics are portrayed as deeply religious,empathetic feminists. They fought against an unfair system with grace and were successful enough to be remembered today. I lent this book to a friend. She liked it so much that she bought her own copy. You need to get this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book with deeply moving inspiration 27 Nov. 2012
By Susan Manning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Carol Flinders does an excellent job of bringing to life these 7 women mystics. Her handling of this very esoteric material is very sensitive and enlightening; especially so since she does not reveal her own spiritual orientation. The truths she discusses herein are universal truths that saints of all religions experience in deep inner communion with the Divine. She describes these experiences very well as she tells the stories of the seven women. Excellent read for any one seeking a deeper inner experience with the Divine.
