A Terrific Book, Part 2

     Last week I was lauding Carl McColman's book, 108 Mystics: The Essential Guide to Seers, Saints and Sages.  One of the things I liked best about the book is that McColman introduced each mystic in one to three pages, and then provided sources for further study.  His bibliography is packed!  What a wonderful resource!

     I found that, in reading, some of the mystics were well known to me.  But I met a few that were unknown or even overlooked by history.  It made my heart warm, knowing that some of these mystics, working quietly and often alone, described their experiences for a future that they could never imagine would appreciate them.  What a testament to faith and courage.
