Editorial Reviews

Review

“As this comment indicates, I am assuming that this volume is going to assume a key place in the literature on this vast subject.”  (Ecclesiastical History, 1 January 2014)

“Julia Lamm has assembled a valuable collection of forty articles by leading scholars in this treasury of studies of (mainly) Christian mysticism. A lengthy and expert introduction by Lamm leads to the first section: five articles on “Themes in Christian Mysticism.”  (The Catholic Historical Review, 1 January 2014)

“Together they open a rich world of creative, inspired writing to contemporary students and fellow scholars.  Summing Up.  Recommended.  Lower-division undergraduates and above; general readers.”  (Choice, 1 September 2013)

“The Wiley-Blackwell Companion remains a treasure-trove of scholarship that will delight anyone interested in the academic conversation around Christian mysticism.”  (Carl McColman, 24 May 2013)

“There is much to praise about this book, from its well-judged contents to the beautiful presentation and typeface. This is a must-have for any library, and for any student or disciple of the mystical tradition."  (Church Times, 24 May 2013)

“The result is a compelling and engaging volume drawing on the best of recent cutting-edge scholarship, and providing insights into an ancient but important Christian tradition.”  (Eastern Christian Books, 17 December 2012)

Review

“The past quarter century has seen an unprecedented outpouring of studies on mysticism, both in Christianity and in other religious traditions. While welcome, this proliferation of literature can also induce confusion—in the midst of so much to read, what will be most helpful for the general reader, and even enlightening for the specialist? The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Christian Mysticism does much to mitigate this problem. In this volume we have a superior survey of the course of Christian mysticism presented by excellent scholars in no less than forty-two essays. The coverage of the main themes and the historical development is impressive, the scholarship is sound, the balance among the sections and treatments is admirable. This Companion will set the standard for the study of Christian mysticism for years to come.”—Bernard McGinn, University of Chicago

Format: Kindle Edition
This is an excellent book, covering a huge array of mystics and mystical traditions. It is more conventional than the Cambridge Companion, which is thematic, but I learned a lot more from it, and I would recommend it more highly. I would specially commend the chapters on The early Judaic/Jewish Christian traditions; The Victorines; and the Byzantine Tradition. I would personally have liked a separate chapter on the Cappadocians, but you can't have everything.

The one thing that one should have is the capacity to buy this book. Who can buy this book at this price?
