The Spanish to English translation needs further translation into modern English. It includes sentences that take a paragraph to finish, as well as quotes in Latin that she fails to translate into English. This book is not readable by an average reader.

I have been seeing references to and quotes from the writings of St. John of the Cross for years, especially in writings in Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, and poetry. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I purchased this fascinating book. St. John of the Cross was an amazing character. It fascinates me to peek inside the mind of someone so different from myself. Also his statements about the development of a more spiritual mind are right on. People with his singleminded religious zeal have made huge impacts on the way we live. Think Plymouth Rock, the Crusades, the Salem witch hunts, the generosity of The Salvation Army, the fearlessness of the Jihadists, etc.
