Book Description

June 1987
For centuries, mystics have groped for words in which to account for the supreme reality of this experience which not only illuminates a man's mind and fills his heart with new strength, but even radically transforms his whole life. All this is said in classic and unforgettable pages by The Cloud of Unknowing, the work of an anonymous fourteenth-century English writer.

The Cloud of Unknowing is a classical on christian mysticism. It is, with Saint John of the Cross, the Pseudo-Dyonisius, and a few others, one of the best ways to somehow understand what mysticism. I say "somehow", because the highest mysticism is a contact (through love) with the Transcendence (God). Understanding the real mysticism is not common, you have to have some experience of it or at least have a kind of "feeling" for it. Well, the author of this book, William Johnston, knows very well (again, as far it is possible) what he is talking about. His book should be rated as one excellent work on The Cloud of Unknowing. So, if you want some introduction before reading The Cloud of Unknowing itself, this book by William Johnston is certainly an excellent one.
