Book Description Teresian Press, 2014. Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. St Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) is unrivalled as a teacher of prayer. Author of a large body of spiritual works - including her classic "Life", "Way of Perfection" and "Interior Castle" - she has inspired countless readers throughout the ages. Yet most people know very little of the writings of Teresa. How much did she produce and did it come easily? What compelled her to take up her pen and what does she most want to tell us? These are some of the questions addressed in this new book, brought out to mark the Centenary Year of Teresa's birth. In a fluent and popular style, it introduces us to the vibrant person of Teresa and the times in which she lived. Most of all, it contains an informative survey of each of her writings, the story of their composition and the themes that form the kernel of her message. This helpful and inspiring book is born of the author's conviction that "nothing in the universe is more intensely alive and active than contemplative prayer." Fr. Eugene McCaffrey, OCD is himself a committed teacher of prayer through his writings and talks. His books include "Heart of Love", "Let Yourself Be Loved" and "Patterns of Prayer". 121 pages.
