Riding with the Lion: In Search of Mystical Christianity


Category: Tags: ,


In Riding with the Lion, Kyriacos C. Markides helps to recover the mystical heart of Christianity, confirming that there is a direct tradition of spiritual practices that the mainstream Church has managed to ignore and even suppress. Markides’ pursuit of higher knowledge leads him on a quest from Maine to New York, London, and Cyprus, and on to ancient monasteries on the coast of Greece. His revelation of a vital, living mystical practice, based in ancient Christian thought, is a major step in linking the most esoteric traditions of the East to the largely esoteric traditions of the West. Riding with the Lion has wide cultural significance, revealing a Western Christian spirituality that includes space for mystical practice that is too often assumed to be the exclusive domain of Eastern religions.
