While imprisoned in a tiny prison cell for his attempts to reform the Church, sixteenth-century Spanish mystic John of the Cross composed many of his now classic poems of the soul’s longing for God. Written on a scroll smuggled to him by one of his guards, his songs are the ultimate expression of the spiritual seeker’s journey from estranged despair to blissful union with the divine

After escaping his captors, John fell into a state of profound ecstasy and wrote Dark Night of the Soul. Later, he added an important commentary to his poem to guide other searching souls along the arduous path to communion with God. Here, for the first time, a scholar unaffiliated with the Catholic Church has translated this timeless work. Mirabai Starr, who has studied Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism, lends the seeker’s sensibility to John’s powerful text and brings this classic work to the twenty-first century in a brilliant and beautiful rendering

This, the free version of Dark Night of the Soul, is just as good as the ten dollar versions you can get. In fact, it is identical to those. This is the original holy book that St. John of the Cross wrote, and I highly recommend it. Its wording and sentence structure may be a bit confusing to some, but it adds irreplaceable beauty to the text, profound inspiration to the message, and pure wonder to the souls of all its readers.
