Riding with the Lion:
In Search of Mystical Christianity
by Kyriacos C. Markides

Riding with the Lion: In Search of Mystical Christianity by Kyriacos C. Markides
  • Description
  • Reviews

In this book, Kyriacos C. Markides helps to recover the mystical heart of Christianity, confirming that there is a direct tradition of spiritual practices that the mainstream Church has managed to ignore and even suppress. Markides' pursuit of higher knowledge leads him on a quest from Maine to New York, London and Cyprus and to ancient monasteries on the coast of Greece. His revelation of a vital, living mystical practice, based in ancient Christian thought, is a major step in linking the most esoteric traditions of the East to the largely hidden esoteric traditions of the West.

This book has wide cultural significance, revealing a Western Christian spirituality that includes space for mystical practice that is too often assumed to be the exclusive domain of Eastern religions.
