A First Look at My Christian Mysticism Trilogy

A First Look at My Christian Mysticism Trilogy February 12, 2018

This photo appeared on Twitter a few days ago:

Lisa Colón DeLay hosts a podcast called Spark My Muse, and she is the first one to schedule an interview in support of my forthcoming release, The Little Book of Christian Mysticism. So my publisher sent her copies of The Big Book of Christian Mysticism and Christian Mystics: 108 Seers, Saints and Sages — along with an advanced proof copy of the new book. That makes this picture the first time all three books of the trilogy have shown up in a photo.

Yes, I know — this is the moral equivalent of somebody showing off pictures of their grandkids. Thanks for indulging me! 🙂

If you’re not familiar with these books — here’s a quick synopsis:

  • The Big Book of Christian Mysticism answers the question “What is Christian mysticism, and why does it matter?” So it’s a basic introduction to mysticism in the Christian tradition, written for ordinary folks like you and me;
  • Christian Mystics: 108 Seers, Saints and Sages answers the question “Who are the mystics, and what makes them special?” This introduces you to over 100 of the greatest mystics, with insight into their lives and their teaching;
  • The Little Book of Christian Mysticism will answer the question “What do the mystics themselves say?” It’s a daily devotional of wisdom drawn from great mystics like Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Ávila, Bernard of Clairvaux, and The Cloud of Unknowing.

The Little Book will be published in April — so click on this link to pre-order a copy. Or, click here to order any of these books, along with links to other books I recommend for exploring the spirituality of Christian mysticism and contemplation.
