This brief, accessibly written volume introduces key figures, texts, and themes of the mystical tradition and shows how and why the mystics can speak to the church today. Jason Baxter, an expert educator and storyteller, explains that the mystical tradition offers a more robust understanding of God than our current shallow conceptions. Featuring engagement with primary sources and suitable for use in a variety of courses, this book argues that the mystics have much to say to contemporary Christians searching for authentic modes of spirituality.

"Umar Ibn al-Farid is the most venerated mystical poet in Arabic. An accomplished Sufi as well as a respected poet, his poetry blends the two traditions - classical Arabic poetry and Islamic mysticism - in a body of work with a distinctly devotional and mystical character. Th. Emil Homerin makes available here two of Ibn al-Farid's poems that have long been considered classics of Islamic mystical literature. The Wine Ode, a poem in praise of wine as well as a love poem, can also be seen as an extended meditation on the presence of divine love in the universe. The Poem of the Sufi Way, one of the longest poems ever composed in Arabic, and the most famous one rhyming in "T," begins as a love poem and then explores a number of crucial concerns confronting the seeker on the Sufi path. Both works have been treated for centuries in numerous mystical commentaries. Noteworthy as well in this volume is the addition of the Adorned Proem, a reverential account of Ibn al-Farid's life by his grandson. Individuals interested in the fields of mysticism and spirituality, as well as lovers of poetry, particularly love poetry, will find this to be fascinating reading. It will have great relevance for scholars and students of Arabic literature, Islam and mysticism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

The Book Has A Strong Textual Base And Will Be Of Interest To The General Reader As Well As To The Specialist Eager To Explore Comparative Literary Contexts. ...Mr. Dhar Has Studied The Subject With Loving Care, And He Has Imposed His Own Insight Quietly But Firmly In A Way Which Can Justifiably Be Commended As Original Work. Professor J.R. Watson, University Of Durham, England ...The Analysis Of Patmore S Poetry In The Specific Context Of The Combination Of The Erotic With The Divine Is Important (Chap¬Ter Iii). This Is An Area In Which The Indian Bhakti Poets Have Composed Their Finest Poems...The Discussion Of The Transcen¬Dental And The Immanent Aspects Of Mysticism And Their Impact On Patmore And Thompson Is A Very Refreshing Part Of This Valuable Study And Deserves Appreciation. Professor V.A. Shahane, Osmania University, Hyderabad ...It Is One Of The Attractions Of The Present Book That Dr. Dhar, Writing From Within The Traditions Of India Adds A Further Ring, Learned In His Understanding Of Christianity, Especially In His Sense Of The Central Importance Of The Incarna¬Tion, He Adds The Insights Of Another Spirituality, Not Dissonant But Distinct And So Additionally Illuminating.
