This book combines stunning colour illustrations with selected text from the writings of the Mystics, exploring the themes of happiness, fulfilment and joy. Nearly 150 excerpts are gathered here, by writers from the 4th to the 21st century, as well as selections from the Bible. Recognisable names like St Augustine of Hippo, St Teresa of Avila and Thoma Merton sit amongst lesser-known figures from a variety of countries, including a number of writers who are still alive today (such as Pope John Paul II, John Stott and Ruth Burrows). Written at a very accessible level in a handy square hardback format, this little book is ideal for personal reflection and meditation, and would make an inspiring and attractive gift.
