      The best books on mysticism come in two categories: books about Mysticism and books by Great Mystics. Obviously books about mysticism are scholarly erudite tomes trying to understand the meanings of mystical experiences, captured in prose and poet.   For The Little Book of Christian Mysticism I have gathered hundreds of quotations from mystics, ranging from Biblical times to the present day, and arranged them according to traditional mystical.

      First, Christian Mystics tend to have an optimistic understanding of human nature. As noted above, they do not believe that mystical experiences can be self-generated, and hence it would be incorrect to label them Pelagian. But it would not be inappropriate to suggest that many of them were semi-Pelagian, or at least practiced spirituality in. Practical Mysticism in Islam and Christianity offers a comparative study of the works of the Sufi-poet Jalal al-Din Rumi () and the practical teachings of the German Dominican, Meister Eckhart (c/8). Rumi has remained an influential figure in Islamic mystical discourse since the.

    The mystical teachings of Jesus Jesus was first of all a mystic. This can be seen from one of his pivotal remarks (often glossed over by Christian preachers): "The kingdom of God is within you." Only a true mystic could have spoken these words. The Christian Mystical Church is an independent Church trying to restore the original Church as founded by Lord Jesus Christ are following the Nicene Creed and we are using the Seven Holy Sacraments. Beyond that, we are considering the Christian teaching to be fundamentally a mystical one and therefore the mysticism must have the central role in the Christian life.

Mystical Christianity by John A. Sanford Download PDF EPUB FB2

Sanford's MYSTICAL CHRISTIANITY is a must read for anyone with a particular interest in the Gospel According to John or a Jungian interpretation of biblical texts. Sanford is more of a Jungian Therapist than he is a Biblical Scholar, yet his Biblical Scholarship is up to the task of offering this psychological commentary on the Gospel According to John from a Jungian by:   "Mystic Christianity" is a totally different prospective from the traditional exoteric view of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.

It focuses on the hidden wisdom in the life and teachings of Jesus which bear close resemblence to the teachings of eastern mysticism. This book is provocative, very informative and I would highly recommend it/5(65). This book opens a new door to the Gospel of John and discovers a treasure-house of psychological wisdom.

The Fourth Gospel is the most mystic of all the gospels and Mystical Christianity sheds light on its myriad meanings/5.

The Big Book of Christian Mysticism is not an interfaith book per se: it really is intended to serve as an introduction to the Mystical Christianity book Christian expression of mysticism. But it is written as a contribution to an understanding of spirituality that is both deep (as in deeply-rooted in the Christian path) and inclusive (open to the wisdom of others)/5(73).

Christian mysticism refers to the development of mystical practices and theory within has often been connected to mystical theology, especially in the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christianity (both the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox traditions).

The attributes and means by which Christian mysticism is studied and practiced are varied. The Big Book of Christian Mysticism bridges the gap between the "ivory tower" of scholarly studies of mysticism, and the everyday experience of ordinary Christians, for whom mysticism is not a topic for bookish research, but rather an invitation to a deeper experience of God.

Because I assume that my readers may not know anything about mysticism (or, for that matter, anything about Christianity!), it /5(97). Note: the following quotations are excerpted from The Little Book of Christian Mysticism which features over three hundred quotations of the mystics.

Sanford is more of a Jungian Therapist than he is a Biblical Scholar, yet his Biblical Scholarship is up to the task of offering this psychological commentary on the Gospel According to John from a Jungian by: Mysticism by Evelyn Underhill [] The classic study of the path to oneness, written by a leading student of Mysticism.

Mysticism, Christian and Buddhist by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki.[, not renewed]Suzuki compares and contrasts Buddhism with Meister Eckhart's mystical outlook. The term “mystic” as it occurs in The Christian Book of Mystical Verse refers to that personal spiritual experience common to the saints of the Bible times and well known to multitudes of persons in the post-Biblical era.

I refer to the evangelical mystic who has been brought by the gospel into intimate fellowship with the Godhead. "Mysticism" is derived from the Greek μυω, meaning "to conceal", and its derivative μυστικός, mystikos, meaning 'an initiate'.In the Hellenistic world, a "mystikos" was an initiate of a mystery religion.

"Mystical" referred to secret religious rituals and use of the word lacked any direct references to the transcendental. In early Christianity the term mystikos referred to three. Through the use of paraphrase, 'The Message' was 'crafted' to present the doctrines of mysticism to the Christian church in order to seduce it into occultism and the New Age Movement.

Those readers who recognize mystical/occult terminology, will definitely get "the message" Mr. Peterson is seeking to convey within his Bible version. Christians do have what might be considered mystical experiences. When we accept Jesus as Savior, we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit transforms us and enables us to live out God's calling. Often, filled with the Holy Spirit, a Christian will demonstrate great wisdom or faith or spiritual discernment. The women mystics of Christianity lived courageous and often radical lives.

They pushed their bodies to the extremes of survival, challenged societal norms and, occasionally, died for their faith. They were rebels and renegades who helped shape Christianity as we know it today. Like their male counterparts, these women sought a connection to God through prayer and devotional Author: Antonia Blumberg.Esoteric Christianity (linked with the Hermetic Corpus since the Renaissance) is an ensemble of Christian theology which proposes that some spiritual doctrines of Christianity can only be understood by those who have undergone certain rites (such as baptism) within the religion.

Both intimate and exhilarating, The Christian Book of Mystical Verse is a book for anyone who seeks to worship God the Father, and who finds the rich language of Christians of old a great help in that : Moody Publishers.
