In poetry and prose, John of the Cross, a 16th century Spanish Carmelitemystic, “articulates grief” in his expressions of loneliness, hurt, and theuncertainties of life. He writes of pain and confusion. He tells of times whenhe thought that even God had turned away. Yet, in his experience we findencouragement and acknowledgement-- we can learn how to live a morepositive life with God at our center. But a true “life” only begins when ouridols die.

John speaks to adults who have become so enmeshed in daily life that theyare slaves to unimportant things. John does not present programs, methods,or doctrines for growth. He speaks simply of God’s healing presence inthe midst of our sorrows. John encourages us to center our lives, let go ofworldly idols, and free ourselves from this empty slavery. And, in the deathof idolatry, our hearts will truly “live.” We will then slowly begin to matureas our trust and patience develops. In this process, we are transformed andwe can begin to view life with a “sensitivity” that comes only from a God-centeredlife.


Reviews about When Gods Die: An Introduction to John of the Cross (3):
Rollers from Abdun
Very good in explaining John of the Cross in terms of current psychology.

This is a treatment of John of the Cross' Dark Night of the Soul and Dark Night of the Spirit along side of Carl Jung's and others' psychological treatment of the maturation of the psyche and ego in the spiritual seeking individual. This book is very accessible, for those without exposure to John of the Cross and for those well-versed in his spiritual mysticism. Recommended for those struggling with the loss of meaning in life, either in or out of religious traditions. I have sought it out several times to center myself in the midst of meaninglessness and the stripping away of limited images of who God really is, and how he manifests himself in life. Well worth the price.

John Welch is genius in putting the insights of C.G. Jung to work in order to understand John of the Cross, one of the more difficult to understand of Christian mystics.
