Very Good. No jacket as issued, minor shelf wear, binding tight, inside cover has previous owner's name, else pages clean and unmarked. One of the most influential German mystical writers of the 14th century, Johannes Tauler (c. 1300-1361) spent his life as a mendicant preacher in the Order of Preachers. These selected sermons show Tauler's emphasis on the via negativa together with his insistence on the importance of cataphatic mysticism and the merits of an active life.
If anyone is interested in learning about our highest blessed states in this world, he/she should read Tauler. This book has helped me to understand visions granted to me more than any other, because Tauler deals with the four states of mystical love so lucidly as no other blessed author has. Not all the Saints and Blesseds deal with the state of our soul in God. I am deeply indebted to Tauler.
This translation is so clear and helpful as if written first in English. I will recommend this book to all Christians and especially recommend it as must read to all the religious.
