This introduction to the writing and preaching of the greatest medieval European mystic contains selections from his sermons, treatises, and sayings, as well as Table Talk, the records of his informal advice to his spiritual children.
"An important introduction to Eckhart's work in that it draws the best texts from the most successful translations and, from them, produces a rich tapestry of presentation for this often quoted and little understood Rhineland mystic."— Publishers Weekly
"That Meister Eckhart is among the most important of Christian mystics is beyond dispute. . . . Read the book backward; start with Eckhart, then consider David Steindl-Rast's foreword and the editor's introductory note—both fill of excellent advice and useful information for second and subsequent readings." —Booklist
