The Life and Doctrines of Jacob Boehme: The God-Taught Philosopher
This is an anthology of writings by the German Christian mystic, Jacob Boehme, edited by a writer, Franz Hartmann. Hartmann was a noted Theosophist, who also wrote With the Adepts and In the Pronaos of the Temple of Wisdom. Other than organizing the quotes from diverse books of Boehme into a set of themes ('Angels,' 'The Christ,' 'Redemption'), Hartmann mostly lets Boehme speak for himself. Boehme, typical of mystics who have experienced ecstatic visions, can go into puzzling detail about the structure of the universe, and the metaphysical reality that pervades it. This is a great reference work on the thought of this profound mystic for students of the occult.
