Item description for God Has One Eye: The Mystics of the World's Religions by R. Mabry John...
Mystics are not popular amongst the orthodox of any religion. In fact, almost every one of the religious leaders who founded world religions began their careers as mystics who spoke about what they had seen, and were promptly declared heretics. Just think of the Buddha, of Jesus, or of Muhammad. All of them were heretics, all of them were mystics, and all of them changed the way we view reality. Once the mystical vision hits you, you realize that everything you thought you were is a lie, that the universe you thought you were living in is gone, and that all the rules and structures by which you ordered your life are meaningless. It is disorienting and painful. There is no lazy man's path to enlightenment, because once enlightenment hits, the lazy man no longer exists, and the luminous being which has taken his place is beyond recognition, even to himself.

A comprehensive Look Jan 12, 2007
In writing this piece, which is a sermon cycle Dr. Mabry delivered at his home congregation, a vast tapestry of faiths is brought together. Indeed, while Dr. Mabry is of the Christian path, full honors and recognition is given to the mystics of many different faith pathways, and always in a most reverent manner; and in one that allows someone of a Christian path, as well as others, to be able to connect to the transcendent experience of encountering the divine. An excellent, and fairly unbiased, representation of various mystics of faith, and of what their faith means now and has meant through history. In addition, in having the courage to explore Christ as a mystic, Dr. Mabry has put the dialogue on an even level, allowing all to approach enlightenment and joined wisdom from the knwoledge of the various global faiths, all in one place.
