The Cloud of Unknowing
Those who turn to spiritual classics for guidance and inspiration often find their style daunting. The original texts still have much to offer but their diction and idiom, chosen for another era and audience, pose an obstacle to many contemporary readers. The Cloud of Unknowing for Everyone is the latest in a series that aims to make some of the greatest Christian teachers accessible to all. In her retelling of this classic, Obbard invites contemporary readers to join previous generations who have discovered the riches of this classic text.
