Journey to the Heart

Christian Contemplation Through the Centuries - An Illustrated Guide
  • By Kim Nataraja
The Christian contemplative tradition traces its origns back to Mt. Carmel, the prophet Elijah's mountain-top place of encounter with divine power. In the Gospels, we frequently read that Jesus withdrew to quiet places to pray. These biblical precedents have inspired a tradition of contemplation through the centuries.

This remarkable book reveals the life and teachings of the great spiritual teachers and Christian mystics, including St. John, Origen, St. Benedict, Julian of Norwich, St. John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, and modern-day mystics like Thomas Merton, Simone Weil, Etty Hillesum, Bede Griffiths, and John Main. Their stories are recounted by an array of leading theologians and spiritual writers, including Laurence Freeman, Esther de Waal, Kallistos Ware, Shirley du Boulay, and many more.

Journey of the Heart offers novice and experts alike a deep and rich tradition and practice of Christian contemplation.
