Blogger Carl McColman recently posted a blog on the popular spirituality website recommending Growing into God: A Beginner’s Guide to Christian Mysticism by John R. Mabry.

McColman says of the book, “Mabry organizes his book around Evelyn Underhill’s five-stage model of mystical development: awakening, purgation, illumination, the dark night, and union. A lovely selection of quotations from the mystics, brief bios to the figures he cites, and a useful section on spiritual practices rounds out this inviting text.”
