There comes a time in the life of all spiritual seekers when they want to get beyond an ordinary good life. John Kirvan writes for these seekers with great insight about the essence of the spiritual journey—the darkness and uncertainty that one embraces after abandoning the clear and certain path. Drawing on the classic introduction to the spiritual journey, The Cloud of Unknowing Kirvan guides the reader to the understanding that our insistent longing cannot be filled by knowledge and understanding, but only by love. Kirvan also shares an account of his own journey, including his growing awareness that the God he has known is but a shadow of God. He tells of his resistance to the call to go deeper and of his desire now to respond more fully. This highly personal book is a generous gift that will encourage mature seekers to embrace the darkness. Includes twenty-five life-enhancing meditations, each including a quote from The Cloud of Unknowing and an original prayer.


"A beautiful book."
