Transformed by The Beloved

A Guide To Spiritual Formation With St John Of The Cross

by Daniel Munoz


Price: £6.99
Publisher:BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship)
Published:January 2014

Transformed by the Beloved is a brilliant way to learn and understand more about St John of The Cross and his writings. Particularly, it covers his spiritual poetry as these are used to demonstrate his theology and thoughts within this book.

At the back of the book you do get a selection of his poems, both in their orignal spanish and english translations. The book, at only £6.99 is worth it just for these alone. But when you factor in that in point of fact you have eight incredibly good, down to earth but deeply rich, insightful and fulfilling studies dealing with issues at the heart of spiritual formation then this book is a real bargain.

This book can of course be read alone at home, and even all in one sitting. But what a wonder this would be on a 7 day retreat, with the final study on 'love—the beginning and end of the journey'±actually being saved for when you return home.

Alternatively if doing a shorter retreat it would be no hardship to read two studies in one day. It would also work as a good house/small group or book club resource and I think there would be many interesting and fruitful conversations borne from it indeed.
