LONGING FOR GOD: AN INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM
Available to order. Customer service will confirm.
Author William Paulsell introduces here sixteen mystics from the mainstream of Christianity. Longing for God has an immediacy that draws readers toward having a deeper appreciation of the mystical experience. That experience is filled out by the historical context of the mystics being introduced and is enlivened by descriptions of their personal lives that provide clues to how God led them and how they responded to a call to oneness with Divinity. While the call could sound esoteric or out of reach of the ordinary believer, Longing for God reveals—through the lives and experiences of these mystics—that every person longing to know God better and to love God more can deepen their faith by drawing near.
