Item description for Adventures in Prayer: Reflections on St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross and St Therese of Lisieux by Noel O'Donoghue...
One of the most respected and adventurous of writers on the mystical traditions of Christianity, himself a Carmelite, Noel Dermot O'Donoghue has gathered together his definitive reflections on the three great mystical doctors of the Catholic Church: St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross and St Therese of Lisieux. These inter-related essays are the fruit of a lifetime, written in O'Donoghue's richly poetic way.
Praise for O'Donoghue's book "Heaven in Ordinarie"
'Searching and moving... combines the sensibility to language and feeling of a poet with an astonishing intellectual boldness... a wonderful and visionary account of orthodox Christianity.' Rowan Williams

Reviews - What do customers think about Adventures in Prayer: Reflection on St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross And St Therese of Lisieux?
mystics Nov 5, 2008
Although a Presbyterian (Orthodox), I enjoy all mystical readings and Holy Bible translations. Most of my bibles are Catholic because I enjoy the apocrypha as well (not accepted as scripture in most Protestant churches).
The three mystical saints in this book are among the world's most famous and their teachings, invaluable.
Anything I can obtain that assists me in meditative prayer is invaluable,. This book serves me well.
