This is a collection of texts pertinent to the study of Christian Spirituality. Excerpts from the key writings of 77 spiritual masters are arranged in chronological order. Representative figures from the major Christian traditions are included; attention has been given to the contributions of women and minorities. Spirituality is approached in the broadest sense, and in a manner that includes both the theory and practice of spirituality.

"The anthology I've been waiting for--comprehensive, ecumenical, chronological--with excellent introduction and indices. The best now in print."--Jerry R. Flora, Ashland Theological Seminary
"An excellent collection of source material that can be used to enhance a course on Christian spirituality, its history, and its impact."--Marygrace Peters, Aquinas Institute of Theology
"In both range and variety, a formidable collection of representative texts from the Christian tradition. The selections are often long enough to give students a feel for the style and mentality of the author, which is usually not possible in anthologies as full as this."--Ralph Keen,
University of Iowa
"A good, diverse collection. I especially appreciate the chronological organization of the material."--James A. Patterson, Union University
