Overview

The acclaimed modern translation of St. Teresa of Avila's classic book on spiritual awareness and guidance

Celebrated for almost five centuries as a master of spiritual literature, 16th-century saint Teresa of Avila is one of the most beloved religious figures in history. Overcome one day by a mystical vision of a crystal castle with seven chambers, each representing a different stage in spiritual development, Teresa immediately wrote The Interior Castle. Probably her most important and widely studied work, it guides the spiritual seeker through each stage of development until the soul's final union with the divine. Free of religious dogma, this modern translation renders St. Teresa's work a beautiful and practical set of teachings for seekers of all faiths in need of spiritual guidance. It also places this classic book on spirituality —"a gem of mystical literature made accessible and relevant to the modern spiritual seeker" –Sharon Salzberg—in a contemporary context, reasserting its literary importance even after more than 400 years.

    Interior Castle

    There is no way that anything that St. Teresa of Avila wrote won't be of the highest caliber. The book itself is beautifully done and the painting on the cover, which is one of the most beautiful of the Saint, has no acknowledgment. I would love to know who painted it. But, what a value for this book. I had always wanted to read, and own a copy of Interior Castle, and I have it for a really good price. Thanks Barnes and Noble. Kevin McCombs

    Inspirational and life-changing

    This is an important classic devotional book in which Saint Teresa of Avila, the doctor of the Church wrote about the inner journey of the soul towards the divine union. Please read this book slowly, meditate on her inspired words, and allow yourself be touched by God's Love and be changed.
