What is mysticism? What are mystics rare and strange? Or, in Emilie Griffins's words, 'What does mysticism have to do with the likes of us?' In WONDERFUL AND DARK IS THIS ROAD, Emilie Griffin invites us to discover this fascinating, yet often misunderstood, spiritual phenomenon. Griffin explores the origins of mysticism, the different expressions and gifts of mysticism, and the recognised states on the mystical journey. In beautifully transparent prose, she illuminates the insights of famous mystics throughout the centuries, from the Apostle Paul, to the Desert Fathers and Mothers, to Thomas Merton and Evelyn Underhill. Ultimately, and perhaps most importantly, Griffin reveals mysticism as a spiritual path that is open to us all, offering the gift of an intimate knowledge of divine love to those who choose it. This is a book that has the potential to transform not only our inner lives, but our world.
