Saint John of the Cross: Luminous Darkness

Saint John of the Cross: Luminous Darkness


“Even though this holy night darkens the spirit, it does so only to light up everything.”

—St. John of the Cross, Dark Night of the Soul


In this compendium of translations and commentary on the writings of St. John of the Cross (1542–1591), interspiritual teacher, author, and translator Mirabai Starr invites readers to experience his “quintessential guidance for navigating the journey to union with Love Itself” that first drew her to the sublime poetry of this Spanish mystic. This revised and updated edition includes a new foreword by James Finley, who notes “how skillfully Mirabai has woven the poems together with tracings of valuable information and insights to help us understand how his poems, his life, and our lives are so mysteriously interconnected and sustained in God’s love.”
