The Dark Night of the Soul is a spiritually moving book. In it, St. John of the Cross describes the soul's journey--the "dark night"--to the "divine union of the love of God." St. John uses rich and deeply symbolic language to depict the journey. However, he does not simply describe the journey; he also offers encouragement and comfort directly to readers as they too struggle with the excruciating dark night. Offering hope to the downtrodden and discouraged, the Dark Night of the Soul is one of the most difficult books a person can read. This book is highly recommended for those seeking union with God.
