Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Welch gives the mature Christian a model for continued growth and deeper spirituality through a discussion of John of the Cross and his writings. The book is especially helpful as it deals with feelings of pain, loneliness, and loss of meaning in the spiritual life. Dark experiences become invitations to let go of cherished idols and to live a deep symbolic life in response to God's loving pursuit of humanity and to the blessedness--hidden at times--of life itself. Highly recommended for public and seminary libraries.
