The Eastern Tradition ."..has never made a sharp distinction between mysticism and theology; between personal experience of the divine mysteries and the dogma affirmed by the Church." The term "mystical theology" denotes that which is accessible yet inaccessible; those things understood yet surpassing all knowledge.

Review: The Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church

User Review  - Heather Tomlinson - Goodreads

I hate giving this book a low rating, because I'm sure for the right person it'd be great and interesting. It's rather academic for me, and a little vague - I read the first few chapters and didn't find that I was finding out much about the title subject. Perhaps I should have persevered.
