In Early Christian Mystics, Bernard and Patricia Ferris McGinn gather together the wisdom of Christianity's greatest masters. Each section offers insight into the mystic's teachings and how we can apply that wisdom in our own lives today. The McGinns begin with the various practices mystics use for finding God. These include sacred texts, the contemplative life, and prayer. Then they guide us through transformation in God, including endless pursuit, unknowing knowing, and the Trinity, and they conclude with two prayers to guide us on our way.
