"This thoroughly engaging collection of Christian mystical experiences and insight takes its title from John 18:36, 'My kingdom is not of this world.'"

-- Steve T. Georgiou, from a review in Cistercian Studies Quarterly
slide 5 of 6

This profound and insightful book includes selected writings of Christian sages and saints from the Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Evangelical and Celtic branches of the Christian tradition. They are presented from a perspective of 'the transcendent unity of denominations.

Selections include contributions from great Chrisitian writers including:
St. Ignatius of Antioch, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Maximos the Confessor, St. Anselm, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Thomas Aquinas, Meister Johann Eckhart, Dante Alighieri, St. Gregory Palamas, St. Seraphim of Sarov, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, C. S. Lewis, Lilian Staveley, St. Nikolai Velmimirovich and more.

"Cutsinger has assembled a dazzling chorus of voices to explore the mysteries of Christian gnosis and deification. His selection is daring (where else can one find Boehme, Dante, and C.S. Lewis side-by-side?) and his taste superb. I can’t think of a better collection to place in the hands of anyone seeking to explore the Christian mystical tradition.”

—Philip Zaleski, editor of The Best Spiritual Writing series

"There are many anthologies of Christian mysticism, but few that range so widely as this: from the first century to the twentieth, and embracing equally Western Christianity—both Catholic and Protestant—and the Christian East, even the Far East. The book is arranged in three broad sections taking the reader from purification, through illumination, to union with God. Each of these sections is further subdivided to explore the different experiences of the way to union with God, from severe austerity, through diaphanous understanding, to an experience of union that transcends unity."

—Andrew Louth, University of Durham, and author of Origins of the Christian Mystical Tradition: From Plato to Denys
