Very few spiritual classics from centuries past offer real guidance for entering into the darkness and light of Christian mysticism. This contemporary translation of one of the most popular texts from the late Middle Ages is different: It offers an accessible invitation to the reader to enter into an engagement with God, through this ?cloud of unknowing.' Written by an anonymous fourteenth century author, The Cloud of Unknowing was originally prepared for cloistered monks. Yet it has found centuries of readers from all walks of life. Each brief chapter offers the spiritual seeker a way to enter into the life of prayer and appeals to the reader's common sense in beginning steps on the mystical path.Bangley, Bernard is the author of 'Cloud of Unknowing ', published 2006 under ISBN 9781557254450 and ISBN 1557254451.
