"God Speaks In The Night: The Life, Times, and Teaching Of St. John Of The Cross" description of this book below-

"Prepared by a team of Discalced Carmelite Spanish and Italian scholars. Translated by Kieran Kavanaugh, OCD.

The authors spent years of research in preparing this book, first released in 1991 in a limited edition, honoring the fourth centenary of that saint's death. Nothing can match it as a source of information about the life, times and teaching of St. John of the Cross. This beautifully presented biography is lavishly illustrated with photographs and is supplemented with articles on John's times, writings and teaching. This volume also presents an unknown side of the saint: his family background, his pastoral experience, his extensive travels and his administrative work.

Over 800 color photographs."
