If you really want to understand the differences between types of prayer and contemplation, this is the book for you. Citing St.. John of the Cross, one gets a very clear explanation of the "dark night of the soul" as well as , how love is "infused" into the soul by God and leads to wisdom.. Contemplation is not achieved by human effort, but is God' gift. It involves great suffering. I liked this book because of the author's depth of understanding of the content. It does require concentration and perseverance but the reward is worth your time. It met my expectations fully.

Hard to review a book that is for use in a class setting. I am not really a reader but it served it's purpose It arrived in a timely manor and the price was right. Good but not really a great book. Just not my personal topic.

Fr. Johnston's book is the most modern and comprehensive text on Christian mystical theology to be found anywhere, east or west. Nothing else like it in print. If you want to understand the landscape of Christian contemplative prayer, this is the book to read.

This is an excellent and comprehensive overview of the subject of mystical theology. It is also an excellent introduction to the relationship between Christian mysticism and the mysticism of the world religions, especially those of the East.
