RIDING WITH THE LION: IN SEARCH OF MYSTICAL CHRISTIANITY

Author: KYRIACOS C. MARKIDES #: 10412

In this book, Kyriacos C. Markides helps to recover the mystical heart of Christianity, confirming that there is a direct tradition of spiritual practices that the mainstream Church has managed to ignore and even suppress. Markides` pursuit of higher knowledge leads him on a quest from Maine to New York, London and Cyprus and to ancient monasteries on the coast of Greece. His revelation of a vital, living mystical practice, based in ancient Christian thought, is a major step in linking the most esoteric traditions of the East to the largely hidden esoteric traditions of the West.

This book has wide cultural significance, revealing a Western Christian spirituality that includes space for mystical practice that is too often assumed to be the exclusive domain of Eastern religions.
