One of the most gifted and internationally renowned theologians of our time here explores the importance of mystery and mysticism in the Christian tradition. He begins with a historical look at myth and mystery in pagan, Hellenistic and Classical cults, and the subsequent development in Christian mysticism and spirituality. From myth and mystery he moved to mysticism in the Christian West up to the present. Christian tradition is compared to Jewish, Islamic and Buddhist mystic experiences. Throughout, Bouyer seeks to focus on the power and meaning of these phenomena in their place in the modern Church. Here the reader will find a new way of reading the Bible and a firmer meaning of what it is to be a Christian. Translated from the French by Illtyd Trethowan.

"Bouyer's highly provocative, meticulously documented argument should prove to be a gold mine for students of mysticism and a rich resource for those with more general interests in Christian spirituality"
- Interpretation

"As one would expect in the case of someone with Bouyer's great erudition, the book is filled with many provocative insights"
- The Catholic Historical Review

About the Author:

Louis Bouyer is a giant of the twentieth-century theological ressourcement, a leading figure in the liturgical movement and a co-founder of the International Catholic Review Communio
