Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

While many books exploring the connection between Christianity and Buddhism have appeared in recent years, O'Brien's study attempts to connect Christianity and the spiritual tradition of Hinduism, yoga. O'Brien seems frequently disingenuous in his discussions as he skates over the very great differences between Christ-centered spirituality and yogic spirituality. O'Brien pointedly develops a Gnostic model of Christianity in which personal discipline and study advance the spiritual practitioner. Yet, he de-emphasizes the Catholic tradition of Christian spirituality that recognizes Jesus Christ as the wellspring of spiritual transformation. Given the immense popularity of the Gnostic variety of Christianity that O'Brien draws into dialogue with yogic spirituality here, his often illuminating book may be useful and welcome to many students of Christian spirituality.

Dr. O Brien, equally at home in Eastern and Western religious philosophy, presents a wonderful prescription for integrating yoga into the Christian experience. His book, written with remarkable clarity, will help Christians and other people of faith to deepen their spirituality. --BENJAMIN J. HUBBARD, Ph.D.-Chair, Religious Studies Department California State University

What Einstein did for Newtonian physics, Justin O Brien does for traditional Christianity. --JEROME HALVERSON, Ph.D. -Dean, University of St. Thomas

Dr. Justin O Brien offers brilliant insights into the meeting of yoga and Christianity. His book will surely help those who wish to grow, to find themselves, and to find God. --WILLIAM JOHNSTON, S.J. - Sophia University, Tokyo, Japan

Format: Hardcover
Could the five millenniums old art of Yoga be key to better understanding Christianity? "A Meeting of Mystic Paths: Christianity and Yoga" is Justin O'Brien's desire to combine the two disciplines in creating a more complete spirituality. The two, although at first sight very different, there is much in common with them despite thousands of miles and thousands of years difference in origin. With the idea that Jesus himself may have heard some of the ideas of Yoga makes "A Meeting of Mystic Paths" a fresh set of ideas, sure to interest even those who don't follow Yoga or Christianity.
