The Cloud of Unknowing (Hodder Classic Series)

Halcyon Backhouse

$19.99

Paperback
For it is not what you are nor what you have been that God regards with his most merciful eyes, but what you would like to be

^^The Cloud of Unknowing is one of the classic medieval texts on contemplative prayer. Written anonymously towards the end of the fourteenth century for someone just starting out in the journey of faith, it dwells on the essentially unknowability of God. Since God cannot be grasped by the intellect, he must be approached with an attitude of humility and love, in listening prayer.

^^This new edition of the great classic on prayer includes a new foreword.



- Publisher "Lift up your heart to God with a humble impulse of love and have himself as your aim, not any of his goods . . . Set yourself to rest in this darkness, always crying out after him whom you love. For if you are to experience him or to see him at all, insofar as it is possible here, it must always be in this cloud and in this darkness." "The Cloud of Unknowing "is one of the classic medieval texts on contemplative prayer. Written anonymously towards the end of the 14th century for someone just starting out in the journey of faith, it dwells on the essentially unknowability of God. Since God cannot be grasped by the intellect, he must be approached with an attitude of humility and love, in listening prayer.
