Overview

The works of Spanish nun SAINT TERESA OF AVILA (1515-1582) rank among the most extraordinary mystical writings of Roman Catholicism and among the classics of all religious traditions. The Way of Perfection was written in order for the saint to instruct her nuns in proper prayer, but it is applicable for all Christians wishing to deepen their religious practice and achieve a greater connection with God.

Through devotion, austerity, poverty, and most of all humility, she invites the presence of God into her life so that she may do His work. And these qualities she hopes to encourage in all readers so that they may find true spiritual love.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The author was a Spanish Carmelite nun in the 16th century. Though designed primarily for others in her order, her guidelines for achieving a deeper sense of spirituality can be followed by anyone, although a good portion of her rules involve a more monastic lifestyle. Though few will go that far, she also provides her personal insights about using prayer to perfect one's relationship with God. The text of this edition has been slightly modernized by former LJ religion columnist Henry Carrigan. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
