Description

The amazing depth of St John of the Cross’s spiritual experience is made available to the widest possible audience in this beautifully illustrated book. The simplicity of the text and its visual commentary both open up a discovery: the ways of God in drawing persons to share in the intimacy of his own life. This is mysticism for everyone.

The Living Flame was written when John was forty years old and at the height of his powers. His time of harsh imprisonment was behind him. He held an honoured place in the Carmelite Reform and had just been elected superior of the house in Granada, Los Martires.
