“Why have we made elitist that which was meant to be common?
The outpouring at Pentecost was for all, and here we have a book
of spiritual gems, living experience, and traditional wisdom that
again offers God's great outpouring!”

In his newest and most powerful book, Deacon Eddie Ensley shows that mysticism isn’t just for monastics and contemplatives. It’s for each of us, every day of our lives, every time we open our hearts to God. Mining the rich heritage of great Christian mystics of the past, Ensley uncovers wisdom that is surprisingly timeless and practical for today’s believers.
He also offers transformative stories of modern day mystics—ordinary people who have encountered God’s life-changing presence. In addition, he offers profound insights for and about individual meditation, group prayer, and journaling, and how these can gently guide believers into the light of God’s “shimmering” love.
This is a book that will change lives and open hearts to God because it holds out a simple and profound treasure, one that leads to everyday mysticism, to seeing God face to face.Deacon Eddie Ensley is the nationally recognized author of Letters from Jesus: Experiencing the depth of his love
(Twenty-Third Publications) and many other life-changing books. A dynamic storyteller, he has led parish missions and retreats for more than twenty years.
