Product Description

Review

"a bold and visionary work." (Spirituality & Health, May/June, 2004)

Review

"Drawing on resources as diverse as Sufism, Benedictine Monasticism, the Gurdjieff Work, and the string theory of modern physics, Cynthia Bourgeault has crafted her own unique vision of the Wisdom way in this very accessible book, nicely balanced between concept and practice."
— Gerald May, senior fellow, Shalem Institute, and author, Addiction and Grace and Will and Spirit

"The spiritual wisdom and practical suggestions in this lively and beautiful book will be helpful to many who find themselves setting out on the interior journey."
— Bruno Barnhart, a Camaldolese monk and author, Second Simplicity: The Inner Shape of Christianity

"Cynthia Bourgeault's book is a valuable contribution to the much-needed reawakening of spiritual practice within a Christian context. Her sincerity, good sense, metaphysical depth, and broad experience make her a source to be trusted."
— Kabir Helminski, Sufi Shaikh, the Threshold Society

"This book is a precious gem, a short and brilliant synthesis of the world's great wisdom traditions. Clear, concise, inspiring and poetic."
— Joan Borysenko, author, Inner Peace for Busy People and Inner Peace for Busy Women

"With consummate skill and dazzling clarity, Cynthia Bourgeault rescues the ancient knowledge of wisdom practices found in all the great traditions and teaches us how to become true instruments of God's glory."
— Toinette Lippe, author, Nothing Left Over: A Plain and Simple Life

Format: Hardcover
If you are a student of the Gnosis and want to learn more about it, and about mysticism within the Western Wisdom traditions, this is as good a place to start as anything. Unlike some other literature of this kind of subject, it is clear, lucid and very readable. The author is an ordained Episcopal priest, but esoteric Christianity is to her I believe a piece of a bigger puzzle, and a frame of reference in particular. She quotes a bit from other enlightened authors, past and present, such as Jakob Boehme. There is also an excellent recommended reading list for further study.
The book is short but covers a great deal of ground in little time, so kudos here for the editing.
Recommended with enthusiasm.

I have read Cynthia Bourgeault's THE WISDOM WAY OF KNOWING five times now. From start to finish, I find what I always find in her writing - the rich, inner tradition of Christianity which is so universally appealing. I have probably read her chapter on Freedom and Surrender ten times, and I quote my favorite lines, "Spirituality at its no-frills simplest is learning not to do anything in a state of internal brace. It is never worth the cost."

I concur with Ray's review above that this is a well written & edited volume that I found completely captivating. Although it does lack in detail and left many questions unanswered for me, I still felt that it outlined the story of "wisdom" in western Christianity in a way that brought many pieces of my learning together. In particular Bourgeault highlights the core similarities of the world's major faiths in terms of the "path" that the great spiritual leaders followed and taught. Highly recommended!
