The Complete Christian Mystic: A Practical, Step – By – Step Guide for Awakening to the Presence of God

Regarded by many as the 20th Century's finest practitioner and ablest teacher of Traditional Christian Mysticism, Evelyn Underwood draws from the lives and writings of such beloved Catholic Saints as St. Teresa, St. Augustine, St. Catherine of Siena, St. John of the Cross, St. Hildegarde of Bingen, St. Mechtild, St. Bernard, and dozens more, as well as from the works of Protestant giants like Jacob Boehme, and George Fox, founder of the Quakers, to demonstrate that «The spiritual life is not a special career involving abstraction from the world of things. It is a part of every man's life, and until he has realized it he is not a complete human being, has not entered into possession of all his powers. It is therefore the function of a practical mysticism to increase, not diminish, the total efficiency, the wisdom and steadfastness, of those who try to practice it…" At more than 600 pages, THE COMPLETE CHRISTIAN MYSTIC is the ultimate single-volume “Masters Class” on the mystical life.
