Translation and commentary by Reiner Schurmann, 264 Pages, Paperback.
This remarkable book shows the seminal Western mystic Meister Eckhart as the great teacher of the birth of God in the soul, it is at once an exposition of Eckhart's mysticism-perhaps the best in English-and also an exemplary work of contemporary philosophy.
Author shows us that Eckhart is our contemporary. Writing from experience, he describes the threefold movement of detachment, releasement, and "dehiscence" (splitting open) that leads to the experience of "living without a why" in which all things are in God and which is sheer joy. Going beyond that, he describes the transformational force approaching the Godhead, the God beyond God.
