Missouri Mystic by Jon MundyMissouri Mystic by Jon Mundy, Ph.D. is the story of a journey, during the last half of the twentieth century, from a farm in mid Missouri to a ministry in midtown Manhattan, to an itinerant ministry to the world. It includes a guru search in India, a journey with a shaman in the jungles of Chipas, a near death experience and a final coming home to truth as found in A Course in Miracles. It is the story of an opening to a mystical dimension and an unanticipated but inevitable clash between traditional Christianity and a more open-minded Interfaith approach to living.
