    Simply put, the Jesuit Scholar Michel de Certeau deceased 1986 , provides a complelling journey in the study of mystic quest for Christ which argues for a return to the concept of spiritual journey as integral to Christian Faith This counters the trend of the past 150 years which has leaned havily on historical criticsm, analytics, and textually obsessed rationalists to pave our spiritual pathways Certeau opens the conversation on spiritual quest and provides an historical review of the church s debunking of mysticism as over personalized wanderings and the move from calling them heretical to their seeking out places of refuge where they could continue their spiritual journeys We know these today as Dominicans, Franciscans, Augustinian friars, Jesuits, Peter Lombard and the Carmelites.What makes this a great volume is the fact that Michel de Certeau was a multi disciplinarist who carried on conversations as easily in architecture as in linguistics and found resonance within the French university faculty His work is not an easy read, certainly a great source for those interested in the thinking and politics behind the mystical movement in Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries.
