Strike The CloudJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Clergy allegedly read books, but the man in the street is the one who reads clergy, and herein lies the challenge for prayer and healthy spirituality in our contemporary times. This slim title engages with and presents the teaching of the 14th century spiritual classic The Cloud of Unknowing in a contemporary form engaging with contemplative prayer, ecumenical churchmanship and where faith beyond Christendom connects.
The chapter concerning humility is moving and challenging. The invitation to fuse the historic and the faithful in our contemporary times is engaging, deep and full of life-giving grace. The breadth of references drawn upon to illustrate the ideas being discussed is surprisingly wide - including current news, inspirational voices, early church fathers, contemporary neurological theory as well the Bible. It has an easy patter making an accessible pathway to contemplative prayer and life in God. It gently nudged me to more discipline, inspiration and solitude in my busy context. 'Pray as you can, not as you can't!' is the best spirit of what this valuable title offers us today.
