The Big Book of Christian Mysticism: The Essential Guide to Contemplative Spirituality
By his own admission, Carl McColman sets out to revisit the initial efforts of Evelyn Underhill in bringing the "Ivory Tower" distance of mysticism to the life of everyday Christians. I think Carl does a great job of "hand-holding" (and I mean that in the best sense) and in that sense is more verbose and repetitive than Evelyn's style. Those finding the somewhat aged work of Underhill a bit inaccessible will most certainly enjoy Carl's approach.
