Publishers Description A featured selection of Spiritual Book Associates In Therese: The Saint Who Loved Us, Arthur Cavanaugh combines fascinating historical accounts with his own personal stories to show the enduring significance and influence that Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897) has today. Declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997 by Pope John Paul II, Therese's journey toward love versus self-love, hope rather than despair, forgiveness instead of vengeance is beautifully conveyed here. This biography will help readers grasp the thought and culture, through which she produced one of the consummate treatises on the love of God. Cavanaugh sets the stage for an encounter with what is acknowledged by theologians as two of the most profound and stirring passages from her book The Story of a Soul. Combining probing historical analysis with stories of tremendous personal insight, this is a work of heartfelt intimacy and an inspiring portrait of the life of an extraordinary woman who continues to touch us today.

Touching Apr 13, 2005
This book is not an attempt at a scholarly review of Therese. Nor is it strictly a biography of her. The author gives us points in his life when Therese intersected with his personal history -- sadness as a little boy, alienation as a young soldier, etc., mixing in the story of Therese and her family and her particular spirituality. The book is easy reading and very straighforward -- it should be approachable by all sorts of people. I found it very touching. And, as anyone who is also a follower of Therese knows, it is nice to hear from others of the same orientation. I highly recommend this book. I have, however, one very small quibble: there were just a couple of proofreading errors. But these are so minor (like the date of death of Joan of Arc), that it really doesn't affect the book or its impact. Thank you Mr. Cavanaugh for a thoughful afternoon and evening of reading.
