This exciting interpretation of a homiletic work of art by Johannes von Staupitz, Luther's mentor, leads the reader to an insight into his mystic sprituality. Rudolf Markwald reveals Staupitz' deep concern for the integrity of the Church and his personal apprehensions at the dawn of the Reformation. Disclosing the synthesis between Staupitz' glowing vision of the Cross and his challenge for Church renewal by the new birth of its people,
A Mystic'sPassion gives a fresh perspective of the fervor of these messages and his quest for defusing tensions.
