Mystics are not popular amongst the orthodox of any religion. In fact, almost every one of the religious leaders who founded world religions began their careers as mystics who spoke about what they had seen, and were promptly declared heretics. Just think of the Buddha, of Jesus, or of Muhammad—all of them were considered heretics, all of them were mystics, and all of them changed the way we view reality.
In this sermon cycle, John R. Mabry provides an introduction to the world’s religions by way of the most famous and celebrated mystics of each tradition. This book is a whirlwind tour that is challenging, entertaining, and enlightening.
