Overview

Rekindling the Inner FireWritings that touch the pure-flaming heart of God ... from the men and women who walked with Him through the ages ... guiding into a deeper friendship with the "Father of Lights."John of the Cross (1549-1591) was one of the brightest spiritual lights of the dark and tumultuous 1500s. His teaching led thousands to inner freedom from "the dark night of the soul"—the state of spiritual blindness in which most of us live our days, unaware that God is right beside us, in love, in freeing power. Through great opposition and danger, John taught countless men and women how to find freedom in the Spirit.John's words and deep understanding of spiritual truth will also help you find a richer experience of God, leading you to:a fresh infilling of the love of the Father.renewed wonder at the beauty and holiness of Jesus, our Lord and brother.the discovery of the Holy Spirit's presence, helping you daily, with new strength and freedom from within.Treasured and classic writings that have had a profound impact on the church down through the ages.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As editor of a remarkable new series entitled ``Rekindling the Inner Fire,'' David Hazard is reintroducing classic Christian authors to today's readers. In Spirit, he offers us St. John of the Cross, one of the foremost mystics of the Christian faith. Designed perfectly for Lenten reading, the book is organized into 40 readings culled from the great works of this 16th-century Spanish mystic (some of the finest in Christian literature-Dark Night of the Soul, etc.) and paraphrased by Hazard to make the materials more accessible and applicable to a contemporary reader. Each selection is preceded by appropriate scripture passages and followed by a thoughtful prayer reflecting upon the reading. A word of warning: the spirituality espoused by John of the Cross is not the sweet, comfortable spirituality currently in vogue. For example, John would no doubt find the contemporary concern with self-esteem a matter of grasping pride. John's call instead is to self-denial and true knowledge of God-after the sin and untruth have been burned away from our souls. But, despite the seeming harshness of John's teachings, most readers will find this book a mere appetizer and will want to follow it by trying the works of St. John in their entirety.
