The Impact of God by Iain Matthew, Jean Vanier

St John of the Cross testifies to a God who longs to meet us in our deepest need. Whilst rejection and imprisonment played their part in the life of this sixteenth-century Spanish friar, John's poetry and prose reveal the beauty and power of a wondrous God. It gives us courage to believe in the possibility of change in our own lives, however unlikely or impossible this may seem.
Father Iain Matthew uses this classic inspirational Christian writing as his starting point, and offers five interpretations which make its richness relevant to the modern reader.

This book is a spiritual pilgrim's guide through the spiritual dark night that any serious seeker of God will most likely experience one or more times as she/he travels the spiritual path. St.John of the Cross is the recognized expert in explaining how God is at work in the soul of a person, but I have never been able to understand and apply John's teaching until I discovered this book (at the recommendation of my spiritual director). I borrowed a copy from a friend and found it so helpul that I bought my own copy to have on hand and to read again whenever the spirit moves me.
