This title offers a clear exposition of important themes in Eckhart's spiritual teaching at a time of huge interest in mystical theology. During his life time, Eckhart was a thinker and teacher of huge influence. In the great Dominican tradition he was a man of extraordinary intellectual gifts but also a wise teacher of those interested in seriously exploring the call to personal holiness. But like many men and women of genius, he fell foul of the Church authorities who felt threatened by his originality and machinated to have him condemned. Richard Woods who is deeply in touch with the spiritual needs of people today believes that Eckhart's time has come once again and that he is more than ever a man for our times. The case he makes is entirely convincing and relates not just to intellectual interests but to the problems of human, physical and mental suffering.
