This book literally changed my life, opening up my mind for the profound contributions that mystical and biblical theology have given the people of God. The idea of the wilderness and its pitfalls for the Christian life have yet to be written about in a meaningful way, especially to those who are spiritual directors or pastors. This is a must read book for all disciplers. I hardily recommend this Catholic theologian to all evangelicals. May our common history benefit us all. The work of Gregory of Nyssa has been invaluable in the quest for biblical perfection, the quest for maturity and transformation. It is helpful to know that the Bible has this kind of journey as the foundation narrative.
