Heaven Opens:
an introduction to Adrienne von Speyr

Adrienne von Speyr was one of the most impor­tant mys­tical the­olo­gians of the last cen­tury, her­alded by fig­ures like John Paul II and T.S. Eliot. However, her work has been eclipsed in many ways by her per­sonal con­nec­tion to Catholic the­olo­gian Hans Urs von Balthasar. Heaven Opens: The Trinitarian Mysticism of Adrienne von Speyr pro­vides one of the first com­pre­hen­sive accounts of von Speyr’s the­ology, one that truly allows us to be “strength­ened and exhil­a­rated by a new expe­ri­ence of Christian sen­si­bility.” (T.S. Eliot)
