    1. I came to Matthew Fox's work like many ex-Catholics, having tossed the spiritual baby out with the dogmatic bathwater and moved on to pursue Spirit through other paths. His work, particularly in Christian Mystics, has reaffirmed for me that there is worth and beauty and true inspiration even in the Christian tradition. It is found in the voices of those who speak for the people, for the earth, for the heart's direct perception of Spirit, for oneness with the Cosmos, for the strength found in dar [...]


    2. Christian Mystics contains a year’s worth of quotation from some of the best know Christian mystics. These individuals range from historical figures such as Thomas Aquinas and Francis of Assisi to more modern contributions from Dorothee Soelle and Nana Veary. For the most part, quotations are grouped according by author. However, there are also random entries spread throughout.Each individual entry includes a quote followed by a bit of discussion. This discussion is an interpretation of the qu [...]


    3. 4+ - some of the quotations were dry and some of the interpretations were just repitious. Overall, however, I found it to be refreshing - it takes spirituality out of the box people often try to put it in and expands the meaning to something that is inclusive and experiential.


    4. Used this book throughout 2014. Daily readings from the likes of Hildegard of Bingen, Julian of Norwich, Thomas Aquinas, Thomas Merton, Master Eckhart, Martin Luther King Jr. and more. Encourages COURAGE!



    5. Matthew Fox's new age doctrine is an incoherent mix of pluralism that holds relativity at the highest level and nothing as absolute. Finding the holes in his story won't be hardif Christ isnt at the center as the savior for our sins a Red Flag should go up! This is New Age philosophy at its best:The New Age movement is a Western spiritual movement that developed in the second half of the 20th century. Its central precepts have been described as "drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual and [...]


    6. "Christian Mystics" is a compendium of short essays, readings, and meditations of mystics, philosophers, and religious leaders. Following each reading is an analysis and summary by the author of how the reading may apply to your own life. In summary, many of the readings are inspirational especially those of Meister Eckhart, Thomas Merton and Julian of Norwich. There were also essays of other less known mystics and philosophers which were equally as thought provoking and inspirational that the r [...]


    7. I wanted to like this book; I like the format of the daily meditation book, have some interest in Christian mystics, and am intrigued by what I've read of Fox's work.Alas, his "commentaries" on the excerpted quotes of various mystics are little more than restatements, and the selected quotes didn't appeal to me. I gave up after a week or so of sampling the book every day.And on a logistical note, I expected 365 readings to be labelled by month and day, not by day number. Sheesh, I had to do math [...]


    8. I give this book props for helping me grok the divine energy of the Trinity. That's why I give it three stars. That's not an easy nut to crack. However, I ditched it because some of the mystics he quoted read more like theologians than proclaimers of mystical wisdom. Not to say people can't be both, just - heck, I couldn't understand Kant without help and I couldn't quite get that stuff either. Plus I found the author's political/social interpretation of the quotes intrusive.
