Mysticism : its meaning and message by Georgia Elma Harkness( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines how mysticism can be distinguished from religion in general, and how its main types can be known. The author explores the biblical roots of Christian mysticism in the Gospel of John and in the Christ-mysticism which pervades Paul's letters. The author also interprets some of the great Christian devotional and mystical writers. These include the early and medieval mystics (St. Augustine, St. Bernard, and St. Francis), the Spanish mystics (Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa, and John of the Cross), the emergence of Protestant piety (Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jacob Boehme, Lancelot Andrewes, George Fox, William Law, and the Wesleys), and twentieth century mystics (Frank Laubach, Kagawa, Teilhard de Chardin, and Dag Hammarskjöld). The author also surveys more contemporary neo-mysticism, including the pseudo mysticism of the occult, the drug culture, Vedanta and Yoga, Zen Buddhism, celebration, the Jesus movement, and speaking in tongues

The dark night of the soul by Georgia Elma Harkness( Book )

10 editions published between 1929 and 1965 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dark Night of the Soul is the title of an important but now little-read book of the sixteenth century by the Spanish mystic St. John of the Cross. It deals with an experience which is not that of a remote time or place, or special degree of saintliness, but which besets the path of the earnest Christian in every age. Its theme is the sense of spiritual desolation, loneliness, frustration, and despair which grips the soul of one who, having seen the vision of God and been lifted by it, finds the vision fade and the presence of God recede
