The Fullness Of God is the first in a new series of titles from World Wisdom featuring the essential writings of Frithjof Schuon. Here for the first time in one volume are the most important of Schuon's chapters on the Christian tradition. The Fullness Of God has been organised in such a way as to guide the reader from matters of metaphysical principle, through various theological and hermeneutical issues, to "operative" questions of spiritual practice and method. Specific topics include the relationship between Christianity and non Christian religions; the divergence within Christianity between its main branches, Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant; the place of reason and faith in Christianity and their knowledge or gnosis; the principle and application of a mystical exegesis of Scripture; the central dogmas of the Trinity and Incarnation, as well as Eucharistic and Marian doctrine; and Christian initiation, contemplative practice, and, and "prayer of the heart." The volume concludes with a short appendix of previously unpublished material, including samples from Schuon's correspondence with various Christian seekers. Editor's notes, a glossary of foreign terms and a comprehensive index are, also, included to make this volume a very useful tool for students, as well as a rich mine for seekers after the sacred.

"This is not a book 'about' Christianity; it is the very thing itself. It is a work of mystical theology of the highest order, sparkling with passionate feeling and continuously convincing the reader with the living truth and luminosity of its insights."
