Rise Of The Mystics is one of my all time favorite books from one of my favorite authors and personal mentors, Ted Dekker. Ted carries a deep understanding of the roots of Christian mysticism with his own experiential lessons from an incredible life. Ted is a natural storyteller, and his fiction is some of the best in the world. It is no surprise he has sold over 10 million books. This passage is from Rise Of The Mystics, the sequel to The 49th Mystic.
