Do you believe that God is the self-giving Love that moves the sun and other stars as well as the Love that is closer to you than your very breath?
If not, please stop reading altogether. If so, then proceed…
As Daniel London’s concise introduction explains, The Cloud of Unknowing teaches us that God is not a thought or an idea, but a loving presence to be encountered in the simplicity of silence. Whether you have treasured this classic text for years or are coming to it for the first time, you will find something here that speaks to your soul and invites you more deeply into the life of prayer.

Like meeting an old friend after an absence and immediately being on intimate terms again, I met the essence of the beloved author of “the Cloud.” This devotional brought me to tears and to belly laughs with that familiar wisdom and wink of slyness I have loved throughout my life. Daniel DeForest London has indeed distilled the author’s authentic voice.
