  • By Anne on 11 July 2017

    I am growing in understanding of this text, but it could be a challenge for the general reader

  • By Jeffrey Chase on 6 October 2013

    Although written in a very old English language style, I urge you to persevere through this inspired book. I found that the language quickly became less of an issue the further I progressed (similar to when hearing/reading Shakespeare for the first time). In many ways I found that the language helped the real truth being described register intuitively rather than intellectually.JC

    I found this particular translation of the Cloud more difficult to understand. I thought the English would be more up to date than it is. I was disappointed and purchased Evlyn underhills translation instead which I find very beautiful and would highly recommend its simplicity.

    Wonderful little book, with a fascinating introduction. Spiritually uplifting and easy to understand the lovely, and sometimes very funny, 14 Century language.

    Classic book for the Christian who wants to go deeper with the Lord. Total surrender to and hunger for God are essential prerequisites to enter in to the dimension that this book touches on i.e. the face of God! sure to offend anyone trusting in their own logic/intellect but for the humble soul who is yearning for more of God this is a valuable guide.

    Great book! But not one to read quickly! Middle English is interesting - even when edited, for this is a light editing. But a facinating and enlightening read for anyone interested in the business of contemplative prayer.
