    "The Cloud of Unknowing" is one of Christianity's enduring mysteries, a meditative state where God is experienced on the deepest interior level. To move beyond thoughts and feelings and into the arms of the divine spirit, we have been given the gift of contemplative prayer.

    Story

    I don't mean to be so hard on this book, but I used my free book credit to get it and I would have learned more from another. He seems to wish he were a psychologist rather than a priest. I would have wished that he had spent more time on other, older writers on contemplative prayer. This isn't really a book. It is a lecture he gave. I felt that his point that our desire for God, Augustine to the contrary, comes from a bad pregnancy rather than the calling of a lonely God for his wandering lambs.
