JACOB BO: Studies in his Life and Teaching

The revival of interest in mysticism and the current vogue of Berdayev and Kirkegaard among theologians makes this new edition of Martensen's studies of the life and teachings of Jacob Bohme most timely. For this humble shoemaker of Silesia is generally regarded as the greatest mystic produced by any of the churches of the Reformation. The editor of this volume, Stephen Hobhouse, is well known for his interpretation of other great mystics, and his introduction and notes add greatly to the value of this new edition of Martensen's classic book on Boehme.
