Review: The Ascent to Truth

User Review  - Goodreads

Merton's book is an excellent, albeit dense, explanation of St. John of the Cross's mystical doctrine. This might not be the best introduction to St. John of the Cross, but it is an effective argument for the importance of the use of reason in the spiritual life. Read full review
