Scholars desire to study mystics but mystics never need to study scholarsI am not sure I am eager to agree - for I do study scholars, but whether I am a mystic I do not know nor particularly care. Mystic needs to be incarnational, so that its grounding does not fly away into evanescence. This is a book on Sufi knowledge so I will probably read a bit of it. Sufi is known for stretching to incarnational language and being criticized for it, sometimes severely.
Speaking of incarnational thinking - see Rachel's latest post, God's afterimage.
