The Cloud of Unknowing for everyone
Contemplative prayer is a gift, and the author of the Cloud of Unknowing advises only those who are drawn to it by God to venture upon it. This kind of prayer, nonetheless, can be seen to be the inner heart of all prayer. Everyone can learn from it.
In this adaptation of a classic ‘how to’ book of contemplative prayer, beautifully and simply expressed and illustrated, the riches of contemplative prayer are made available to all. Those who find this way of praying natural for them and those who wish to discover hitherto unknown facets of the beauty of prayer can alike find in it real spiritual nourishment.
