St. John of the Cross, great mystic of the Christian tradition, knew suffering first-hand: his personal "dark night" included exile, imprisonment, starvation, abuse. Yet, sustained by tremendous faith and steeped in an enormous love for God and for humanity, he surrendered to the Divine and was drawn through his experiences to a profound compassion for and solidarity with others.
This engaging biography is the perfect introduction to--or an enjoyable re-acquaintance with--a man whose life, writings, and spirituality have illuminated the Christian world.
Includes a guide to reading the works of John of the Cross, photos and color reproductions of masterpiece artwork, and an extensive annotated bibliography.
