Wellsprings of Faith: The Imitation of Christ, The Dark Night of the Soul, The Interior Castle (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions)by Saint Teresa of Avila
Each of the spiritual classics in The Wellsprings of FaithThomas � Kempis' The Imitation of Christ, Teresa of Avila's The Interior Castle, and St. John of the Cross' The Dark Night of the Soulremains strikingly fresh and relevant for modern readers. The books continue to inspire believers today, and yet were either products of conflict within the Church or agents of religious upheaval. Thomas � Kempis' The Imitation of Christ touches seekers with its powerfully personal spiritual advice, while Teresa of Avila's The Interior Castle and St. John of the Cross' The Dark Night of the Soul show seekers how to have a personal union with Christ, instead of a relationship solely with the Church.

I almost didn't buy this book, simply becuase of someone else's bad review. But it turns out they were just offended at the Introduction. I would NOT say the Introduction is 'anti Catholic'. Its really a great Introduction... but more IMPORTANTLY, a great book! It has all three classic devotions in one book for a low price. I was very happy to find it and I'm glad I got it. If you're looking for Christian writings on the inward life of Christ, then I'd definately recommend Wellsprings of Faith.
Is this really $500 dollars?
This would have been a great addition to any personal library. Truly these three works have stood the test of time and are indeed still read by the modern Christian. Unfortunately, rather than letting the works exist for what they are, an anonymous editor has had to inject feminism, pantheism, and an anti-Catholic attitude into the introductions. This was truly disappointing, as The Interior Castle is an excellent translation, the appearence of the volume beautiful, the binding of high quality, and the print easy to read. But, for those seeking the Truth in the works themselves, the revisionist agenda will be too much to ignore in order to keep this collection.
