Item description for Contemplation: A Christian Path by Jager Willigis & Willigis Jager...
Overview A provocative new study of the Christian contemplative tradition and its relevance to contemporary daily life in a cogent synthesis of scholarship and creative analysis. Willigis Jager is a Benedictine monk and author of three previous books--the most recent being The Way to Contemplation: Encountering God Today.
Willigis Jager's provocative study of the Christian comtemplative tradition and its relevance to contemporary daily life traces the development of contemplation as set forth in the writings of such celebrated mystics as Meister Eckhart, St. John of the Cross, and the anonymous author of "The Cloud of Unknowing." Jager draws parallels with similar pathways in the East and notes the ways in which contemporary psychology, with its emphasis on the transpersonal journey, has shed light on various aspects of the contemplative way.
