9780340980132: The Dark Night of the Soul (Hodder Classics)

If a man wants to know for certain the road he is on he has to keep his eyes closed and walk in darkness.

'The dark night of the soul' has come to typify that condition of spiritual dryness, depression and seeming abandonment by God that many Christians experience at some stage in their lives.

In THE DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, St John, a sixteenth-century Spanish mystic and poet, describes the spiritual road that leads to union with God. On this road the soul must enter the Dark Night to be stripped of its imperfections, including the famous 'seven deadly sins' - a process that often takes a number of years.

This new edition of a great spiritual classic is for all who long to find God in the middle of their darkest times. It includes an introduction from the translator and a new foreword by Alan Jamieson.

Review:

Almost every believer feels forgotten by God sometimes. Even Christ cried out on the cross, "Oh God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Dark Night of the Soul, a 16th-century mystical text written by the Carmelite monk St. John of the Cross, ranks among Christianity’s most helpful answers to this enduring question. In St. John’s vision of spiritual life, the pain of separation from God is to be embraced, not avoided. "The dark night is about being fully present in the tender, wounded emptiness of our own souls," explains translator Mirabai Starr--although she grants that modern culture makes such acceptance hard to attain. "We tend to see difficult feelings as a form of illness, which we hope to conquer, cure, and expel. [St. John of the Cross] has a far greater imagination of human life: his goal is not health but union with the divine." Several fine English translations of Dark Night already exist; Starr’s, however, is distinguished by its ecumenism. Minimizing the explicit scriptural references of the original text, she makes the treasures of Dark Night more accessible to readers of all religious traditions. --Michael Joseph Gross
