Excellent Introduction toOne of the Great Mystics

St. John of the Cross, along with his mentor, St. Teresa of Avila, is regarded by many as the greatest mystic produced by the Catholic Church. His writings are timeless, touching the same strings of the 20th century soul as they did the 16th or 19th century soul. However, unlike St. Teresa, who seems to be in the throes of a serious revival, little is known of this fascinating thinker beyond his published writings. Robert Herrera performs a worthy service for all those interested in the Spanish mystic. Herrera provides the reader with a solid look into his life and times, finishing up with an analysis of his writings. For those who have not yet gotten around to reading St. John, this is a useful introduction. For those familiar with the Saint's writings, this slim volume is a valuable companion.
