Christian mysticism for everyday

I have been reading many books by Christian mystics, and enjoy the in depth discussions of principles. Terence Grant does a terrific job of writing very directly & simply how the principles apply to everyday life. I am not a church-goer (yet..) but if a church-oriented friend expressed interest in mysticism, this is the book I would recommend to them as an introduction.

The best blend of Christianity and Zen I ever take

Highly recommended! Especially for those Christians like me who respect zen as a philosophy rather than a religion as a branch of Buddhism, and have the vague perception that zen can be practised as a style of life without compromising one's faith.

Highly recommended reading

Highly recommended reading. The author is very direct, i didn't have to try and figure out what he meant.

You can change without self-improvement.

Terence Grant describes a process of personal change through self-understanding and God's power. He describes how we struggle to attain some ideal and yet we are unable to attain the ideal through our own power. Instead we can gain freedom by learning to live in the present moment and listening to God in prayer. Mr. Grant provides a viable way of personal change without self-improvement.

Synthesis of the best of Eastern & Western mysticism

Grant, both a former Catholic priest and disciple of Zen, borrows from both traditions to create a new and exciting amalgam well-suited to the needs of spirituality-hungry moderns. Using concepts familiar to followers of Eastern schools of thought, and using the Christian "centering prayer" popularized by Thomas Keating, Grant gives the soul-searcher a variety of new insights to explore on the journey of life. Highly recommended!
