Item description for The Interior Castle or the Mansions by Saint Teresa of Avila, Fr Benedict Zimmerman & Benedictines of Stanbrook Abbey...

This spiritual autobiography was originally intended as a series of addresses to the nuns of the Order of the Discalced Carmelites, the order which St Teresa founded. The book contains advice and direction on themes ranging from self-knowledge and humility to detachment and suffering. St Teresa compares the human soul to a castle, equipped with many mansions. The key to entering this castle is prayer. Following St Teresa's spiritual pilgrimage, the reader enters the first mansion of humility and then the succeeding manions of practising prayer, meditation, the prayer of quiet, the prayer of union with God, before entering the central mansion where God resides and where the most special spiritual blessings are to be received.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Interior Castle or the Mansions?

What an Excellent Book!  May 3, 2008
I bought this book at a local bookstore actually as a fluke (sort of). I had some in-store credit and a coupon, and I had heard this was a solid work by St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila), so I bought it.

This is one of the best books I have ever read! I now say to persons, "I'm in a 7-Step spiritual program" (i.e., St. Teresa's seven mansions). St. Teresa is this very winesome writer who is furiously working on this treatise late at night after being neck-deep in this massive and highly controversial reforming movement in 16th century CE Spain.

So she comes to this work all tired and exhausted physically, but her zealous spirit for the things of God just shines right through the pages! It is literally a window to the soul of this great woman who walked her talk. She also is very attractive in that she is, in one sense, this very ordinary woman who has believed a story that God can do great things through those who will live for Him totally. As such, you don't get the sense she's this super-intellectual giant like Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, Calvin, and so on who is also struggling with their intellect, but rather she's the "plain Jane" sold out for God.

After reading this book, I've made St. Teresa of Jesus (Avila) my honorary mother as I couldn't be more honored than to be her son in some small way. I have gone on to get her collected works in three volumes, but I must say this is one of the most profound, yet elegantly simple, books I have ever read. In one sense, how can I write a review of this book? What can I say about such a treasure? All I can say is this, if I had to lose all my books and can only have my Bible and maybe ten others - this work would be among the ten.
awesome  Jul 26, 2007
it is very spiritual and can search your soul for your place in your spiritual beliefs...
This is mystical theology. If are a researcher like I am, this is an awesome book
Knowing Christ  Jan 10, 2007
An excellent book that deals with the process of knowing and surrendering ones life to Jesus Christ. One is struck by the deep passion to have an intimate relationship with Jesus and what a person is willing to forsake for that relationship. One will not agree with all that is said but will be challenged to describe what you do believe and how does it apply to your own life. It is a book that needs to be read several times to mine the riches of the truth.
The Interior Castle  Nov 9, 2006
This book is excellent! Very helpful in drawing the reader closer to God.
