St. John of the Cross, great mystic of the Christian tradition, knew suffering firsthand: his personal "dark night" included exile, imprisonment, starvation, abuse. Yet sustained by tremendous faith and steeped in an enormous love for God and humanity, John surrendered to the Divine and was drawn through his experiences to a profound compassion for and solidarity with others.

This engaging contemporary biography is the perfect introduction-or an enjoyable re-acquaintance-to a man whose life, writings, and spirituality have illuminated the Christian world.

ICS Publications is pleased to have this this sought-after and highly acclaimed biography, out of print for a decade, among our titles.

Includes a reading guide to the works of St. John of the Cross, a selection from his works, 24 pages of color photos and reproductions of masterpiece artwork, and an extensive bibliography and notes.
