"Mystics have groped for words in which to account for the supreme reality of this experience... All this is said in classic and unforgettable pages by The Cloud of Unknowing, the work of an anonymous fourteenth-century English writer. . .Johnston [provides] the first extended and coherent theological treatment .... a most welcome and valuable contribution." -- -Thomas Merton
