Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 
More than four centuries have passed since Teresa of Avila's birth in Spain, and she is still celebrated as one of the world's great spiritual teachers. Her endearing human qualities, mystical insights, love for God, and refreshing candor all contribute to her legacy as a cartographer of the soul and a master of contemplative prayer. Her mystical writings are well known in religious circles and have nourished the souls of the most advanced in the spiritual life. They also touch the hearts of people everywhere who may never have heard of contemplation, but who long to grow closer to God. In her texts, she creates a body of mystical literature astounding in its depth and wisdom and comforting in its humanness and common sense.

Meet the Author


The first woman Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church, Teresa de Ahumada y Cepeda was born in Avila, Spain, on March 28, 1515. A descendent of converses (Jews converted to Christianity) on her father's side, Teresa maintained an acute awareness of social injustices all her life. Teresa entered the Carmelite Monastery of the Incarnation in 1535, but it took over twenty years for her inner transformation. She went on to become a spiritual author, mystical theologian, contemplative teacher, and founder of the reformed, or discalced, Carmelites.

I am not a scholar so I must read this treasure slowly and meditate on a thought line quite awhile before I read more. It is wise to pray for help from the Holy Sirit each time the book is approached. At times(most) I feel the lesson in the words is just beyond my scope of understanding and I must stretch spiritually for it to touch me and pull me closer-deeper. I am glad for this struggle- this pulling in,tugging and coaxing the soul to open up and reach for the ability to see and understand Gods Will--I pray for the desire to seek that level.
