Women Christian Mystics Speak to Our Times is an ambitious collection of essays by leading scholars that connects the modern world with the timeless wisdom of women such as Catherine of Siena, Hildegard of Bingen, Thérèse of Lisieux, Mary of Bizye, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila, Birgitta of Sweden, Hadewijch of Brabant, Agnes of Blarmbekin, Mechthild of Magdeburg, Marguerite de Porete, and Catherine of Genoa. While emphasizing the holy lives of these women, this book also reveals their lasting contributions to theology and spirituality. Bound by a common belief that women Christian mystics have much to teach us today, these accessible essays are geared toward classrooms and educated lay readers.
