This beautifully illustrated book reveals the life and teachings of the greatest Christian mystics, including:
- Jesus, St. John, and St. Paul
- The Early Church Fathers and the Monastics
- Early English and modern-day mystics – Julian of Norwich, Thomas Merton
- The European tradition – St. John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Meister Eckhart
