Islam, Christianity and the Mystic Journey

Full Product Description

There is a journey which every believer in every faith tradition must make and that journey leads to the Divine. For some, this is articulated as The Way of the Mystic. This volume seeks to survey and analyse in a comparative fashion the road map for that mystic journey in Islam and Christianity. In an exciting and dynamic comparison, Professor Netton charts the Ways of Perfection in this original study of the two mystical traditions. This is the eagerly awaited companion to his Islam, Christianity and Tradition: A Comparative Exploration (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2006). The volume has five distinctive features: it is highly interdisciplinary and pays close attention to both Eastern and Western mystical traditions; it has a particular interest in the mystical colour green; it examines the role of al-Khidr/al-Khadir/Elijah/Elias/St.George in both the Islamic and Christian mystical traditions; it considers and compares both the negative and the positive articulations of each tradition; and it assesses and compares three major Islamic mystics and three major Christian mystics. The three principal chapters are expounded in the light of these five foci.This is an original and substantial work of scholarship which makes a notable contribution to the comparative study of mystical theology.

Islam, Christianity and the Mystic Journey by Ian Richard Netton was published by Edinburgh University Press in April 2011. The ISBN for Islam, Christianity and the Mystic Journey is 9780748640829.
