Brand New. Paperback. Brand new, not a used item. Please no orders from Tennessee. This classic of spiritual literature is, fittingly, by an unnamed 14th-century English monk. It focuses on man's inability to fully grasp the true nature of God, or to behold the sublime splendor of heaven while still limited to the plane of sensory existence. Thus humanity must learn to link up with the divine through the titular cloud, with its limits of space and time. The author breaks the stages of man into four categories: ordinary, special, singular, and perfect--the final stage being where one dwells in a space of eternal bliss and connection to God. The steps towards achieving this level involve deep humility, prayer, and loving God above all else, for He is seen as a "jealous lover" who demands total adoration.
