Wisdom's Children A Christian Esoteric Tradition (Paperback)
|Author: Arthur Versluis|
From the Publisher:
The first book in English to provide an in-depth introduction to the Christian theosophic tradition that began with Jacob Bohme, Wisdom's Children brings us into a startling new world of experiential spirituality that is in fact the Christian equivalent of Sufism and Kabbalism. With biographic introductions to major theosophers and detailed discussions of theosophic authors such as John Pordage, Jane Leade, Dionysius Freher, and Johann Gichtel - as well as a survey of their major theosophic cosmological and metaphysical teachings - this book is an indispensable guide to the hidden history of Protestantism and its ramifications today.
