The author argues that mysticism is not confined to Christianity, but the relation between the soul and Christ is a distinctive mystical experience; and it is specific in this sense, that this relation works out in a certain practice of life and certain development of character. It is this concrete effect of a true Christian mysticism which forms the subject of this book.

Robert Forman Horton (18 September 1855 - 1934), British Nonconformist divine, was born in London.

In 1880, Horton accepted an invitation to become pastor of the Lyndhurst Road Congregational Church, Hampstead, and subsequently took a very prominent part in church and denominational work. This included establishing a mission hall for the Hampstead church in Kentish Town, known as Lyndhurst Hall.

Horton delivered the Lyman Beecher lectures at Yale in 1893. In 1898, he was chairman of the London Congregational Union, and in 1903 he was chair of the Congregational Union of England and Wales. In 1909, he took a prominent part in the 75th anniversary celebration of Hartford Theological Seminary.

His numerous publications spanned theological, critical, historical, biographical and devotional subjects.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
