Why Should Evangelicals Read the Mystics?

My co-worker and fellow Lay-Cistercian Jacquie alerted me to the following essay (and blogger’s commentary thereof):

Why Should Thoughtful Evangelicals Read the Medieval Mystics?

Christian History Blog: Prominent Reformed Evangelical Promotes Medieval Mystics

Since I’m not an evangelical (in the sectarian sense of the word), I’ll refrain from commenting on these essays, other than to note that I since I don’t share the perspective from which these writers come from, naturally I don’t share all their values or even all their conclusions. Even so, to their overall message I can only say a hearty “Amen!” — which is why I am now commending their words to you, my readers, of whatever persuasion you might be.
