Summary

The resurgence of mysticism in the religions in the last few decades undoubtedly stems from a widespread need for a deeper, more contemplative spirituality. Jewish, Christian and Islamic Mystical Perspectives on the Love of God, explores what Jews, Christians, and Muslims can learn from their own faith, from the experience of a dialogue that seeks, at its best, to face them with something new, strange, and unexpected. The book bears witness, by means of the great spiritual thinkers of the three traditions, to what becomes possible when friendship and integrity are allowed to flourish.
