Item description for Embracing God: Praying with Teresa of Avila by Dwight H. Judy...

A book about meditation that shows readers how to nourish their souls, this work first looks at the life and principles of the Spanish Carmelite nun, Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), one of history's great mystics. It then examines Teresa's spiritual development along with the concepts and practices she developed to communicate with God through prayer and meditation. The author includes many exercises and charts to facilitate personal spiritual growth.

Publishers Description
Teresa of Avila, the sixteenth-century Spanish mystic, teaches you how to explore the interior castle that is your spiritual home. Room by room while praying, Teresa helps you explore these questions: Who is God? How can I communicate with God? and How can I shape my life so intentionally that I might embrace God? Dwight Judy is Teresa's assistant in this spiritual adventure, for he uses a variety of charts and exercises to help you inhabit your interior castle through prayer and meditation. Embracing God goes far beyond inspirational books on prayer; it requires a level of commitment to the spiritual life that is mature and deep. Teresa's approach will appeal to seasoned, introspective Christians, especially those who lead and nurture others who seek a greater intimacy with God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Embracing God: Praying with Teresa of Avila?

What do You want of me?  Dec 6, 1999
Dwight Judy takes a systematic, sensible approach to saint who took a sensible approach to the extraordinary topic of the interior life. His book gives an overview of Teresa's life and her relevance to our time, then shows the author's insight into the psychology of spiritual development. The types of Teresian prayer are covered, with exercises for reflection and prayer. Judy's exposition of discernment in the interior life is exceptionally well done. The book ends by pointing to the purpose of a lively interior life - to know and assent to God's will for our earthly, exterior life. This book is accessible for one who is new to Teresa, while also adding new insight and order to one more familiar with her works. Her writings are extensively and appropriately quoted.
