This collection of the spiritual writings of St Gregory of Nyssa, selected and introduced by Jean Danielou, has long been recognized as an authoritative introduction to the 'father of mysticism,' who exploded classical antiquity's static understanding of perfection by showing the Christian life as one of never-ending growth, a true dynamic movement 'from glory to glory.' Modern thought has come more and more to appreciate the depth and insight of Gregory of Nyssa: he epitomizes, in a sense, all that is best in post-Nicean patristic thought... In Gregory's teaching of the sacred history of the story of God's dealings with men history and symbol fuse in a way that reveals all the uniqueness of the Christian message. Jean Danielou, from the Preface 137792 Jean Danielou
