NORTHWEST NAZARENE UNIVERSITY JULY 27-30 –  Leonard Sweet plenary speaker

Dr. Leonard Sweet quotes:

Mysticism, once cast to the sidelines of the Christian tradition, is now situated in postmodernist culture near the center.… In the words of one of the greatest theologians of the twentieth century, Jesuit philosopher of religion/dogmatist Karl Rahner, “The Christian of tomorrow will be a mystic, one who has experienced something, or he will be nothing.” [Mysticism] is metaphysics arrived at through mindbody experiences. Mysticism begins in experience; it ends in theology.

(From p. 160, A Time of Departing, quoting Sweet from Quantum Spirituality, p. 76)
