Reviews - What do customers think about John of the Cross: Doctor of Light and Love (The Crossroad Spiritual Legacy Series)?
Simplifies Daunting Material Jun 4, 2001
St John of the Cross was Teresa of Avila's spiritual advisor. Her mystical writings always were difficult for me to understand so I was leery of John of the Cross's work figuring that he was even less accessible. However, Kavanaugh presents his work clearly and with good references to understandable concepts. This book has been enlightening to the point that I find it hard to put down ... and that is much more than I expected. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand the work of an intellectual master who nevertheless was firmly grounded in the realities of daily life and understood the average person's struggles.
