    It was a lovely book but didn't say much Just a uick run down of the major Christian mystics in history Didn't get too deep into either mysticism or what the mystics themselves were about A uick encyclopedia that might lead one to other writings but in itself not very filling

  2. Katrinka Katrinka says:

    Hard to give this one a rating It's a good peremptory exploration of Christian mysticism but what seems like the author's being stuck in what I can only call old fashioned attitudes re gender dangers of straying from orthodoxy really dilutes the work's palatability as a whole
