Blogger Carl McColman recently posted a blog on the popular spirituality website Patheos.com 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.”

Growing into God: A Beginner’s Guide to Christian Mysticism by John R. Mabry has been reviewed and excerpted in the online magazine Spirituality & Practice.

The review, written by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, reads:

In this dramatic and engaging book, which grew out of a course he taught at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, California, Mabry begins with the idea that we all can be friends with God and that “mysticism is the pursuit of — or enjoyment of — union with God.” 

 

Mabry maps what this spiritual path looks like and profiles some of its movers and shakers. He provides added value to the book with sections on Questions & Answers, The Mystics in Their Own Words, Spiritual Practices, plus two appendixes on “The Mystic’s Journey in Liturgy and Tradition” and “The Mystic’s Journey and Spiritual Development Theory.”
