Leading Christian thinkers now offer a range of important new perspectives on this tradition, both historical and contemporary, to show how a dimension of negativity has characterized not only traditional mysticism but most forms of Christian thought over the years.Table of contentsNotes on contributors PrefaceIntroduction (Oliver Davies and Denys Turner) Apophaticism, idolatry and the claims of reason (Denys Turner) The quest for a place which is 'not-a-place': the hiddenness of God and the presence of God (Paul S.
