I Want to See God Mar 16, 2007
It is a great summary and an easy to grasp digest of Carmelite Spirituality. It is a wonderful read either individually, in a book club format, or with a Spiritual Director. The subtitle explains the goal of the book: A Practical Synthesis of Carmelite Spirituality. This information can become practical knowledge by answering to these questions after each chapter: What does this mean to me? How can I implement this information in my life? It is a priceless book for those who search for truth and want to grow in the love of God.
Great book Jan 9, 2007
A book that follows St. Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle. It is well broken up into small parts. I recommend it.
Classic of the spiritual life Feb 11, 2006
This book is a great synthesis of the spiritual life and is good for all Christians. P. Marie-Eugene explains all the facets of Carmelite spirituality in a very down-to-earth, practical way. He takes the reader through all of the different stages of the spiritual life (purgative, illuminative, unitive) with the aid of spiritual powerhouses like Sts. Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. It is also a good primer for those seeking a foundation in spiritual theology; it also serves well as a moral theology text.
