In this volume McGinn surveys the mystical movement which flourished in 14th century Germany, starting with the famous speculative mystic Meister Eckhart. This volume focuses on the Rhineland mystical tradition (Eckhart, Suso and Tauler) in medieval Germany, and also examines the controversy over heretical mystics and mainstream mysticism, the historical and intellectual background to medieval German mysticism, and also examines the mysticism of Nicholas of Cusa.

The Presence of God. A History of Western Christian Mysticism, . Pp. xx+738. New York: Crossroad Publishing, 2005. When Heidegger writes of the sacred place during the National Socialist period in Germany, he evinces a nostalgia for an all-encompassing world of myths, a nostalgia seemingly also felt by the Hellenic Neoplatonists when they try to provide a philosophical groundwork for the Hellenic rites, even as those rites are being slowly extinguished by the Christians. But also during the National Socialist.

Bernard McGinn (born 1937) is an American Roman Catholic theologian, religious historian, and scholar of spirituality. A specialist in Medieval mysticism, McGinn is widely regarded as the preeminent scholar of mysticism in the Western Christian tradition.

Mysticism is on the rise as a topic of cultural interestand as a part of the burgeoning interest in spirituality that has defined the cultural temperament of our times. This shift has had a predictable effect on the kinds of students enrolling in mainline Protestant seminaries, as well on as the interests they bring. All this would have surprised faculty members of an earlier generation. If mysticism was touched upon at all in the seminary curriculum of, say, 1980, it was a topic left to the historians; survey courses in systematic theology generally would not have ventured into such arcane.

McGinn's work engages the reader in an well-organized, fascinating discussion of mysticism in medieval Germany, placing the works in context of larger Church history and contemporary religious movements. I thought I would read chapters relevant to my research only (Eckhart and Suso) and scan the rest of the book, but it is so interesting and well-written that I plan to read the entire work. McGinn is a master of his craft.

This is a gift, so I haven't read it. But the book is in good shape and much more reasonable price that when I tried to purchase it last year at this time. Glad it's back in print!

This book is the fourth in a general series by Bernard McGinn on the history of Christian mysticism. In this volume McGinn surveys the mystical movement which flourished in 14th century Germany, starting with the famous speculative mystic Meister Eckhart.

This work explores the historical, theological and philosophical currents which conditioned this flowering of mystical thought and writing, and also closely examines the mysticism of Meister Eckhart, Henry Suso, John Tauler, Nicholas of Cusa and other German mystics of the period.

This work is essential reading for any student of theology or mysticism and is a valuable addition to any personal theological library.

This volume is the fourth in the series of Bernard McGinn which aims to give a comprehensive history of Christian mysticism.

This volume focuses on the Rhineland mystical tradition (Eckhart, Suso and Tauler) in medieval Germany, and also examines the controversy over heretical mystics and mainstream mysticism, the historical and intellectual background to medieval German mysticism, and also examines the mysticism of Nicholas of Cusa.

The main dissapointment for this book was the omission of John Ruusbroec, the critical Flemish mystic, and the important medieval English mystics including the author of the Cloud of Unknowing. Perhaps they will be in the next volume.

Overall the very high quality and depth of McGinn's scholarship is retained in this volume and as such it is an essential purchase for any theological library.

The quality of scholarship that Dr. Bernard McGinn displayed in vols. 1, 2, and 3 of his "Presence of God" series is evident in this fourth volume. May he be blessed with enough years and good health to write the next volumes, bringing us up to the 20th century (and, if we are lucky, he'll have time to write briefly of the 21st too).
