Classics of World Spirituality: The Cloud of Unknowingby Evelyn Underhill, Laurence Freeman (Editor), Laurence Freeman (Introduction)
Most probably written by a cloistered monk sometime during the 14th century, this Christian classic ponders the significance of contemplation and prayer. More than a discussion of the author's own spiritual experiences, it is a revelation of how all can share in them. One of the most realistic of mystical writers, he draws his illustrations of divine mercy from the homeliest incidents of friendship and parental love. Benedictine monk Laurence Freeman provides an enlightening introduction.
