Strike the Cloud presents the teaching of the 14th century spiritual classic The Cloud of Unknowing in a contemporary form, through selecting and commenting on its main themes. It explores how The Cloud has been adapted by contemporary teachers of contemplative prayer, and outlines ways in which it is relevant to the bigger ecumenical and interfaith picture of today.
