Product description


"Elaine Heath has produced a remarkably creative work, linking the church's missional priority for evangelism with the neglected resources of the church's mystics. To do this, she confronts contemporary issues in ministry by opening a treasure trove of theological insight and mystical practices including both current innovations and past centuries of Christian devotion. Within these pages are both a vigorous challenge to the church and a way for robust spiritual renewal of the faith to flourish."William B. Lawrence, dean and professor of American church history, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

Elaine Heath brings a fresh perspective to the theory and practice of evangelism by approaching it through contemplative spirituality. This thoroughly revised edition includes a new study guide.

"A refreshing and profound contribution, this revised edition offers even more perceptive insights. Heath wisely and incisively identifies critical issues facing the contemporary church in the West and responds with care and creativity, skillfully recovering the richness of Christian mysticism. This is a must-read for both those who study and those who practice Christian ministry!"
--Laceye Warner, Duke Divinity School

"The Mystic Way of Evangelism is honest, reflective, intelligent, and rooted in Scripture and tradition. It offers a hopeful vision that Heath has modeled for us through her work of helping others shape communities of faith that are vibrantly living into the future. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the current state of Christianity in the West and longs for a healthy way forward."
--Johnny Sears, director, Academy for Spiritual Formation and Emerging Ministries, The Upper Room

"Heath's ideas have sparked a renewed and timely interest in the intersection of the Christian mystics, contemplation, and practical Christianity. This book inspires through the richness of traditions while opening readers to divine possibility in the midst of decline and challenge in today's church."
--Hee-Soo Jung, resident bishop, Wisconsin Conference of the United Methodist Church

"Rich with narratives from across centuries and theological traditions, this book surprises at every turn. Heath helps us imagine what evangelism might look like in our time. Central to the book is the God of the gospel, and central to the evangelism Heath calls us to is the evangelist's--and the evangelistic community's--experience of this loving God."
--Mark D. Baker, Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary

"Since discovering the wonderful gift that this book is, I have used it in several contexts, including university courses, seminars, and churches. Here, however, is no simple how-to manual. Heath's challenge is no less than the total makeover of both the individual believer and the church. The goal of Heath's vision is a beautiful church that brings good news in word and deed to God's world."
--Chris Flanders, Abilene Christian University --This text refers to the paperback edition.
