This fresh translation of poetry by the fourteenth-century Christian mystic “sets the heart ablaze and the spirit soaring.”
— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, author of The Artist’s Rule
Meister Eckhart (1260–1328) influenced a wide range of spiritual teachers and mystics both inside and outside the Christian tradition. Erich Fromm, Eckhart Tolle, Richard Rohr, D. T. Suzuki, and Rudolf Steiner have all credited Eckhart as being an important influence on their thought. In addition, his work has influenced the development of twentieth-century American Buddhism and the Theosophical tradition.
Eckhart wrote at a time—much like our own—when society appeared to be coming apart at the seams. In the midst of all that chaos and uncertainty, he captured the many forms and stages of God’s love, the mystic path, and the journey of transformation. His writings were so startling that he was even accused of heresy.
Now, seven centuries later, this fresh rendering of his work translates the essence of one of Christianity’s greatest poetic and spiritual voices, conveying the heart of his teachings about loving God and embarking on a spiritual journey characterized by mystery, paradox, and an embrace of the unknown.
