Joining the wisdom of East and West, a modern spiritual master proposes a new Christian mysticism for the third millennium, one that will help humanity to transcend violence and heal the earth. Seamlessly blending history and philosophy, and with deep knowledge of Buddhist, Christian, and Hindu mysticism, Johnston provides an exhilirating look at what such a mysticism might be, and what it may accomplish.
William Johnston, an Irish Jesuit, has lived nearly 50 years in Japan. Professor of religious studies and director of the Institute of Oriental Religious of Sophia University, he has lectured worldwide on East-West mysticism. His many books include The Inner Eye of Love and Mystical Theology.
A beautifully woven vision of Western and Eastern spirituality . . .

"Arise My Love is at once a treasure house of spiritual insight and an informed exercise in interreligious dialogue . . . a respectful dialogue that does not obscure the distinctiveness and integrity of religious traditions but allows them together to illuminate the human religous quest."
