I had long heard of Edith Stein, but had done no serious reading of her. I am so grateful and pleased that this book was my first real introduction to her. As is plain to see through the other sources cited in this book, and through the introduction by Edith Stein's niece, Susanne Batzdorff, and the forward by the Director of the International Edith Stein Institute, Michael Linssen, O.C.D, this book in particular is a great and irreplaceable addition to the literature on Edith Stein precisely because Maria Scaperlanda does an authentic and beautiful work of presenting all the complexities and tensions surrounding Edith's life and death, while at the same time giving a glimpse into Edith's unwavering clarity of her own calling and mission. This book inspired me to dive further into Edith writings, and I'm currently reading a collection of her essays on women. May you too be blessed by this book, and the transformative journey on which Edith will surely take you, should you feel so inclined.

I recently had the pleasure of indulging in Maria Scaperlanda's masterful biography of Edith Stein, whom I consider a model of Christian feminism, scholarship, and holiness. In addition to the beautiful narration of Edith Stein's tragic and beautiful story, I deeply appreciated Scaperlanda's sensitive work in exposing the challenge in Jewish-Christian relations over the canonization of St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. The book provides a profound education in the sensitivities of our Jewish brothers and sisters in the continuing aftermath of the Shoah.

I knew nothing of Edith Stein except the occasional mention in a homily or at a women's prayer group. I found her story fascinating and her journey to conversion very touching. The author has a gift of storytelling, presenting Edith's life through her devotion to her family, the Jewish people, and her beloved Carmel. I would definitely recommend this for those going through RCIA, or those who are faced with difficulty and hatred. The story was beautifully written and has left a lasting impression on me. St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross was a strong example of love in such a dark time in our history.

"Lord, is it possible that someone who is past Midlife can be reborn?" (124) These words of Edith Stein jumped off the page. I knew little about her until reading this book. Now, I feel like I have a new companion on the way. I highly recommend this book. Fr. Scott A. Boeckman
