Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824511891, Hardcover)

This illuminating book shows how the experience and wisdom of spiritual pioneers in the fourteenth century illumine our path toward wholeness in a dysfunctional world.

Addiction, dysfunction, and codependency are the common currency of the nineties, and the pain and damage done to people and institutions are daily fare. Important Christian mystics have wrestled with a society in turmoil in their own time and have much to tell us. Jeff Imbach takes the reader on a journey of exploration, examining the life and writings of four pivotal mystical writers of that period. Julian of Norwich, John Ruusbroec, Meister Eckhart, and Dante Alighieri are pathfinders who, despite war, plague, and famine, sought and found intimacy with God and comrades and plumbed the depths of the mystery of love. They can help us reimagine the Church and the world and enrich our daily lives.
