Translated & edited by E. Allison Peers, 211 Pages, Paperback.
Dark Night of Soul follows the soul's journey from a state of abandonment and darkness to a loving union with God. In a voice at grandiose and melodious, and a style that combines the systematic theology of St. Thomas Aquinas with rapturous poetry. St. John describes the process of moving away from routine religious rituals and embracing a Being who can be known only through love. His words, Peers writes, "are a wonderful illustration of the theological truth that grace, far from destroying nature, ennobles and dignifies it, and of the agreement always found between the natural and the supernatural-between the principles of sound reason and the sublime manifestation of Divine grace." Dark Night of the Soul offers support and encouragement to all who seek oneness with God.
