Reviews & Endorsements

“The word mystic terrifies a lot of people. But in this beautifully written book, Bruce Epperly will help you discover that there's already a mystic inside you. I am so glad this book will help readers around the world discover a deeper and more joyful dimension to life. I wish I had been able to read this decades ago; it would have saved me so much wasted time and would have helped me discover more of life's fullness much sooner. Highly recommended! "
“Those of us who have come to know and love the luminous voices of mystics such as Saint Francis, Etty Hillesum, Rumi, and Julian of Norwich finally have a compilation that satisfies our thirst for refreshing theological vision blended with creative spiritual practices. Bruce Epperly’s holistic approach to the mystics speaks to a world wounded by violence, division, and climate change. A beautiful and timely work."
