Mystics: Presence and Aporia

Michael Kessler

2003

Jointly edited by Michael Kessler and Christian Sheppard, this book explores the lives of mystics, past and present. Their attempts to describe and explain their unique experiences illustrate the challenges that emerge when people use language to relate inherently indescribable experiences to others. Contributors discuss the lives and theology of individuals such as Thomas Aquinas, Joan of Arc, Saint Teresa of Avila, Martin Luther, and George Herbert.
