Publisher's Description

A practical spiritual guidebook, The Cloud of Unknowing was thought to have been written in the latter half of the 14th century, by an anonymous English monk, possibly a Carthusian, who counsels a young student to seek God not through knowledge but through what he speaks of as a "naked intent" and a "blind love." "Our intense need to understand will always be a powerful stumbling block to our attempts to reach God in simple love ...] and must always be overcome. For if you do not overcome this need to understand, it will undermine your quest. It will replace the darkness which you have pierced to reach God with clear images of something which, however good, however beautiful, however Godlike, is not God."--Author, The Cloud of Unknowing. Lamp Post is proud to present some of the finest Christian literary works of all time-writings that have affected the Church, touched the hearts of its leaders, and helped shape Christianity for two thousand years; timeless books that have endured and are deserving to be included among the Christian Classics.
