Item description for The Loving Struggle Between God and the Soul (Honeycomb) by Fray Juan De Los Angeles & Eladia Gomez-Posthill...

In this groundbreaking new translation of Juan de los Angeles' treatise on the spiritual life, one of the great sixteenth-century Spanish mystics becomes accessible to the English-speaking public for the first time. Written for all, this work continues in the authentic Catholic mystical tradition taught through the centuries by Dionysius, St. Anselm, St. Bernard, St. Bonaventure as well as St. John of the Cross.

Fray Juan himself promises that: 'In this book about the divine art of loving, should you read it with the aim of attaining that love and apply yourself as a student does to the study of grammar, I assure you of its profitability and that, before long, you will find yourself a changed person,' qualifying this encouragement with a warning that "if you have loved much you will understand much, and if little, little, and if you have never truly loved, you will understand nothing at all."

By stressing that the self can never be the focus of true mysticism, the author provides a Catholic answer to the excesses of many 16th century charismatics who placed too much weight on subjective experience. "[Juan de los Angeles] is very practical, experienced, and active ... the reverse of a dreamer." - E. Allison Peers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Loving Struggle Between God and the Soul (Honeycomb)?

the reverse of a dreamer  Apr 20, 2005
Peers' observation of Juan de los Angeles as 'the reverse of a dreamer' is well taken. A spiritual giant comparable to and more accessible than John of the Cross is revealed in this book. Fray Juan may be less rough than the great discalced mystic, but a spiritual language of delight serves them each in equal measure. Copious traces of St Bernard's practical sweetness run through Fray Juan's holy preaching, making the book easy to read and love. His is a sound and practical spiritual flight shorn of the extraneous.

'The Loving Struggle' is one of (so far) three books called the Honeycomb Series, beautifully published by Saint Austin Press; the other two are St John Cassian's 'Monastic Institutes' and Louis de Blois' 'Comfort For the Faint-Hearted'. Nothing fainthearted about the spiritual brief of Fray Juan de los Angeles. This book will fascinate religious, and especially students of the school of Spanish mystics, but it's strong and wise enough to provide substantial increase for almost any seeker.
