-Publisher

Redesigned to incorporate photographs from his son Micah, Marty's work begins with the Psalms and then draws on the imagery of the wintry way of God in western mysticism (e.g., John of the Cross, Pseudo-Dionysius, and The Cloud of Unknowing).
-Publisher

The reflections in Martin Marty's classic, like those of the Psalmist who inspired them, grapple with the sense of divine remoteness and distance found in the "winter of the heart", a time, ironically, when one can have a fresh experience with God.
