It's a book to be read slowly, though, as John talks of a world and an experience which is utterly beyond and above most of our imaginations... yet one, he assures us, that is open and available for us all.
I can't recommend this book enough. It gave me hope, courage and inspiration - I hope it has a similar effect on you.
I have recommended it to numerous people and probably will also buy copies to hand to some contacts of mine. It has made a big difference to my prayer life. I hope it sill do the same for you.
Easy to read and get a real insight into the life of the Saint and his sufferings. Some books about St John of the Cross try too hard to intellectualize him, which makes him harder for lay persons to understand. But this book really explains his deep Love for Christ and the spiritual path that led St John to encounter Him.
I loved it so much, I bought another copy for a friend.
The book's only (to my mind) negative trait is that he defies convention and refers to the person (3rd person singular) as "she" instead of "he". It is explained in the beginning that this is due the Latin "alma" (soul) which is feminine. I accept that I may simply be over-sensitive to social engineering via politically correct language, and therefore my criticism is based on my own possible misinterpretation.
My criticism in no way detracts from the message of the book, nor the information with which I was provided. Excellent work.
