This clear and informative book provides readers with a crash course on how the seers, saints, and sages of the Christian tradition have pursued and attained enlightenment. This is a user-friendly and potentially life-changing introduction to the wisdom teachings of over 108 of the greatest mystics in the Western tradition. Its premise is that we all need teachers and companions to assist us in developing rich interior lives.

Eng.Men
The title promises a lot, the author has the idea very clear, but it is diluted in too many biographical aspects not related either to mysticism nor to social justice.
A little more bold and it would had been a classic.
Shaktiktilar
This book argues that both prayer and service/action are essential in the life of a follower of Christ. Both are essential for the mystical experience of Love which comes to us through our love of God and neighbor. Both love of God and neighbor are essential to live the Christian life more deeply, fully, completely, joyfully. Not one or the other, but both together.

The author explores the dimensions of love of God and love of neighbor in the lives of those who lived both in an extraordinary way--Catherine of Siena, Ignatius of Loyola, Evelyn Underhill, Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, four twentieth century figures from South Africa (who promoted the end of apartheid and reconciliation), and Martha and Mary from scripture. She places each of these people in the context of the times in which they lived to help the reader see how these faithful followers of Christ uniquely embraced both love of God and love of neighbor in their lives and how it profoundly impacted those around them and the societies in which they lived.

There is much in this book that could provide the basis for a retreat or day of recollection. And then there is other material--such as the discussion "A Contemporary Feminist Interpretation" in the chapter on Martha and Mary--a bit of a distraction in an otherwise excellent book. But those pages were few. The fact that the discussion of Martha and Mary didn't include any contemporary biblical exegesis on Martha and Mary missed an important opportunity to show that scripture sees the examples of Martha and Mary as complementary, not in opposition to one another, a point the author herself consistently made.

In many ways, the book reflects my own experience on my faith journey, where both prayer/reflection and service/action have been integral parts of my own growth as a disciple of Christ.

All considered, this is an excellent book which I strongly recommend.

This book is both profound enough for the scholar, but easy enough for a wide audience. Could be taught in the high school classroom. (I've taught high school religion.) Love the chapter on Martha and Mary. Not prayer OR action, but both!
