Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

St John of the Cross testifies to a God who longs to meet us in our deepest need. Whilst rejection and imprisonment played their part in the life of this sixteenth-century Spanish friar, John's poetry and prose reveal the beauty and power of a wondrous God. It gives us courage to believe in the possibility of change in our own lives, however unlikely or impossible this may seem.
Father Iain Matthew uses this classic inspirational Christian writing as his starting point, and offers five interpretations which make its richness relevant to the modern reader.

Iain Matthew joined the Discalced Carmelites in Oxford in 1978. He has worked in parish and youth ministry, and has given retreats and courses in Europe and Australia.
