Format: Paperback
Using examples from Christian and Islamic mystical texts,
Sells shows that these texts operate through "apophatic" language, that is the language of unsaying
or saying what cannot be said. An important study in the History
of Religions, in Literary Criticism, and in the comparative study of mysticism.

14 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Colin Moore on January 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
The contents of this text are profound and one of the best treatments of the subject I've ever come across. It has incarnated, nay, manifested itself as a University of Chicago paperback. That august publisher has provided us with a tangible reminder of the universality of mutability and change. Not long after I started reading it, the book split along the spine and now all the pages are falling out. So I must search for a hardcover version, if it exists.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very scholarly for my background and training. Maybe to be expected based on the subject matter, but definitely moments of "moving" inspiration arising from the mystic's efforts at "Unsaying".
