Teresa of Avila: The Book of My Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582) is one of the most beloved of the Catholic saints. In 1562, during the era of the Spanish Inquisition, Teresa sat down to write an account of the mystical experiences for which she had become famous. The result was this book, one of the great classics of spiritual autobiography. With this fresh translation of The Book of My Life, Mirabai Starr brings the inimitable Spanish mystic to life for a new generation, with contemporary English that mirrors Teresa's own earthy, vernacular Spanish, and that presents us with—four centuries after Teresa's death—someone we feel we know: a woman intoxicated with God yet filled with an overflowing love for the world.

Synopsis:

Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), the Spanish Carmelite nun and mystic, is one of the most beloved figures of the Catholic faith. Her spiritual autobiography, which she called "The Book of My Life," was written at the height of her influence and at the direction of the infamous Spanish Inquisition, to spell out her teaching for them.

Synopsis:

The autobiography of Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) combines ecstatic experiences with a dose of common sense. One of the great classics of spiritual memoir, this is the first new English translation in forty years, and the first by a woman.
