Despite his academic and clinical background, Dr. May writes clearly and in a very personal voice that I find very easy to grasp.
Dr. May's book provides an easy to understand introduction to the Dark Night of the Soul works of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila.
The only way out is through surrender, and surrender at the most important levels is not something most of us can simply will ourselves into.
