While imprisoned in a tiny prison cell for his attempts to reform the Church, sixteenth-century Spanish mystic John of the Cross composed many of his now classic poems of the soul’s longing for God. Written on a scroll smuggled to him by one of his guards, his songs are the ultimate expression of the spiritual seeker’s journey from estranged despair to blissful union with the divine. The author describes how the trials the soul must undergo - when all familiar spiritual feelings disappear and God Himself appears to abandon the seeker - are a necessary purification, leaving an individual ready to receive illumination. The book is about how to keep faith when all seems lost. Think of it as guide to making it through the dark night of the soul to the brighter, faith filled tomorrow that awaits. 169 pages
