Join one of the world’s leading experts on Christian mysticism in his masterpiece audio course. These 12 inspiring audio lectures will captivate your mind and stir your spirit.

The mystics show us the deepest recesses of the human spirit. Now, this remarkable series gives you the rare opportunity to take one of the world's leading experts on mysticism as your personal guide. Boston College's Fr. Harvey Egan draws on 50 years of teaching the Christian mystics. Brilliantly taught, his lectures are filled with faithful insights.

Under his guidance, you will explore the mystical life by focusing upon 11 significant figures. You will begin with Ignatius of Loyola and his finding of God in all things before looking at the "apophatic" mysticism of the Cloud of Unknowing. Next, you will explore the classical mysticisms of Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, and Catherine of Siena, whom many consider to be the apex of the mystical tradition. You will also encounter the visionary mysticism of Julian of Norwich.

You will discover the captivating mysticism of Francis de Sales, Angela of Foligno, and Karl Rahner. Finally, after considering Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's cosmic mysticism, you will be moved by Mother Teresa of Calcutta. 

Let the great mystics of our tradition speak to you today.

"Harvey Egan’s vast knowledge of the Christian mystical tradition is impressive. Few scholars have matched the clarity of the way he introduces persons and highlights what is important in their writings. His assessments of mystics’ views are always both sympathetic to them and judiciously critical of them. A great guide!" (Louis Roy, O.P., Professor of Theology, Dominican University College, Ottawa)

"I can think of no better guide to the Christian mystical tradition than Fr. Harvey Egan, SJ. Learned, prayerful, articulate, inviting and always accessible, he is among the best of teachers." (James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage)

A good overview of Christian mystics. I was hoping for a more in depth of the mystical process and it’s utility to forge a greater understanding of the mechanism of reality and consciousness. However it introduced me to mystics that may do just that

A Master of Mysticsm

Fr. Harvey Egan is one of a handful of people in the world who truly understand the Christian Mystical tradition. This audio course is his teaching magnum opus. I found his lectures at once accessible/humble and profound. Egan is clearly influenced by his teacher, Karl Rahner, but this series spans the breadth of mystical traditions, striking balance between the perspectives of various mystics and the theologians and writers who have contemplated their works. I found his lecture style upbeat, engaging. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in succinct survey of mysticism. Frankly, I was inspired.

Excellent Intro To Christian Mysticism

Egan has provided the most exceptional basic introduction to mysticism I’ve heard thus far. This course of lectures provides a simple way for anyone to gain a comprehensive overview on the subject. The listener will benefit from a balanced teacher’s explorations and explanations of the teachings of a variety of saints throughout church history who were blessed to experience, serve, and share these gifts with the wider body of Christ.

father Harvey was a great speaker although when I

father Harvey was a great speaker although when I got the book I thought it was more about Mystics in general and not just Catholic Mystics it is worth listening to.

Excellent

The mystics presented in this audiobook collectively paint an inspiring picture of Christ his saints. The various mystics herein presented are different in many ways, demonstrating that the Christian mystic does not suffer absolute dissolution of personality while attaining to divine union. These short talks deserve a wide listening audience.
