Matthew, Iain OCD. Foreword by Jean Vanier. As a monk in 16th-century Spain, the life of John of the Cross was one of suffering and imprisonment, but also of great joy. His poetry and prose tackle questions of faith with humility and wisdom, and this text examines John's spirituality, finding an echo of Christ throughout his life. Iain Matthew is a Carmelite priest and obtained his Ph.D. at Oxford University on an aspect of the teaching of St John and his understanding of Christ. He clarifies important concepts of John of the Cross in language that is contemporary and vibrant, using lively examples to illustrate them. 174pp PBK
