Product Description

There are few works on the spiritual life in the West that can match the insight and sheer beauty of those of the sixteenth-century Spanish Carmelite, St. John of the Cross. The harshness of his teaching that emerges in the context of his commentaries on his poetry is balanced by the poetry itself - a poetry that breathes the warmth and sweetness of the tender love of God that made John on of the greatest mystical writers of all time and earned him the title, Doctor of the Church. Here, under one cover, are selections from his major works in a revised translation by Kieran Kavanaugh.
