A growing number of readers are seeking to incorporate the contemplative in their busy lives, and this volume offers them expert advice. Drawn from the works of Saint Augustine, Saint Gregory and Saint Bernard, the writings form a coordinated body of doctrine by three of Western culture's most revered teachers of mystical theology. In addition to accounts of the writers' own religious experiences and their related theories, the book discusses speculative contemplation, defines mysticism and characteristics of Western mysticism, and contrasts contemplative and active lives. Filled with valuable suggestions and insights into the spiritual condition, this volume is a must for all students of mysticism.
