We are still too often told that Christian mysticism is no integral part of Christianity: sometimes, even, that it represents an opposition to the primitive Christian ideal.

Mysticism is usually thought of as an intense state involving personal unification with the Divine or Ultimate Reality. By its very nature, it is an ineffable experience, impossible to put into words. The work of a noted British authority on mysticism, it is divided into two parts: the first provides an introduction to the general subject of mysticism and its relation to metaphysics, psychology, theology, magic, and symbolism.

The Mystic Way reviews the development of the mystical tradition within Christianity and defines the true character and origin of the Christian mystic. The author also examines how Christian mystics differ from mystics of other spiritual traditions--and how Christian teachings enrich the mystical experience.

Underhill is an exceptional writer on mysticism. She provides a wealth of insight into Christian mysticism in this work. While her writing does challenge some traditional views, she is by no means heretical, and only those who cling to tightly too dogma need be offended.

Underhill does not recognize or understand the difference between the realism of the mystical theology of Paul and the Hellenistic mythical religions,although the difference is fundamental. The stoic idea of a natural and unmediated being in God are but folly and presumption,there is no homogenious humanity,but only various catagories of men predestinated,elected to enter into a relationship with God,in(through)Christ.Her book is a metaphoric attempt to merge Christianity to Hellenistic Myth religions.I recommend,the Mysticism of Paul the apostle,by Albert Schweitzer for he clearly explains the difference between Hellenism and Christian Mystical Theology.
