Timothy Radcliffe introduces this masterly short guide to Eckhart's mystical teaching - perfectly pitched for those interested in spirituality and theology. Richard Woods writes as a passionate advocate of Eckhart's relevance to issues and challenges facing intelligent people today with emphasis on religious understanding, belief, action and human suffering. The fruit of more than ten years of reflection, Meister Eckhart: Master of Mystics explores a set of related themes bridging Eckhart's medieval world and our own turbulent times - women's role in spirituality and church life, global climate change and the sacredness of Creation, the meaning of detachment, the blind alleys of spiritual 'technology', the meaning of contemplation and the place of prayer, Eckhart's views on art and spirituality, his daring insights into the challenges of pain and suffering, and Eckhart's relevance for wider and deeper encounter among world religions. Other chapters investigate Eckhart's wide-ranging sources and his revolutionary approach to the redeeming mission of Jesus Christ.

Exploring the religious category of dying to self, this book aims to resolve contemporary issues that relate to detachment. Beginning with an examination of humility in its general notion and as a religious virtue that detachment presupposes, Kellenberger draws on a range of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary sources that address the main characteristics of detachment, including the work of Meister Eckhart, St. Teresa, and Simone Weil, as well as writers as varied as Gregory of Nyssa, Rabi'a al-Adawiyya, Søren Kierkegaard, Andrew Newberg, John Hick and Keiji Nishitani. Kellenberger explores the key issues that arise for detachment, including the place of the individual's will in detachment, the relationship of detachment to desire, to attachment to persons, and to self-love and self-respect, and issues of contemporary secular detachment such as inducement via chemicals. This book heeds the relevance of the religious virtue of detachment for those living in the twenty-first century.

Medieval masters Thomas Aquinas and Meister Eckhart considered problems inherent to speaking of God, exploring how religious language might compromise God's transcendence or God's immanence ultimately hindering believers in their journey of faith seeking understanding. Going beyond ordinary readings of Aquinas and building a foundation for further insights into the works of both theologians, this book draws out the implications of the thought of Eckhart and Aquinas for contemporary issues, including ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, liturgy and prayer, and religious inclusivity. Reading Aquinas and Eckhart in light of each other reveals the profound depth and orthodoxy of both of these scholars and provides a novel approach to many theological and practical religious issues.
