Synopsis

The Impact of God Soundings from St John of the Cross by Iain Matthew

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.

Reviews

This impressive book introduces us to the beautiful, painful world of John of the Cross, who is still our surest guide into the mystery of God's love. * Abbott Christopher Jamieson *
