Description

Andrew Harvey's celebrated book Hidden Journey chronicled the Oxford scholar's departure from the materialistic doctrine of Western academia to his embrace of mystical Christianity. Shortly after Hidden Journey's 1991 publication, however, Harvey experienced a schism with his then-guru that created shock waves throughout the spiritual world in which he is a leading mystical teacher. Sun at Midnight is the story of Harvey's efforts to pick up the pieces of his life, his faith, his marriage, and his sense of relationship to the Divine after a split that sent him reeling into depression, crisis, and fear for his life. The book is based on the Christian concept of the "dark night of the soul," whereby a part of oneself must die for a truer faith to be born. In "seven acts," Sun at Midnight tells the story of Harvey's break with the discipleship to which he had previously devoted his life; his struggle to understand whether those years were wasted in blind fantasy; his ultimate realization of the all-redeeming power of love; and his revolutionary leap into a new, more direct relationship to the Divine.show more
