Review quote

"Much of the book is devoted to showing the unexpected value that flows from the thought of John of the Cross. The author shows how the works of Saint John of the Cross can be used to understand issues and questions raised in contemporary thought. This is a work of solid scholarship presented in a convincing manner. It discusses ramifications of John of the Cross' thought not to be found in other texts." -- Gerard P. Brennan, Holy Family College
