Reviews - What do customers think about St. Teresa of Avila?

Not Much Insight  Oct 24, 2007
For those who know nothing at all about this saint this book may be helpful, if you want an authorized and approved-by-the-Vatican selection. For those who want to really know what made her tick, you won't find it here.
Review from the Publisher  Mar 16, 2001
This famous author has presented here another masterpiece and what is undoubtedly the finest life of St. Teresa of Avila ever written in English - a picture of one of the greatest saints of the Church and one of the most appealing women of all time. During her lifetime (1515-1582), St. Teresa captivated just about everyone she met by her wit, sanity, courage, intelligence, simplicity, humility, charm and power; today she continues to delight people by her wonderful combination of holy madness and huge common sense. William Thomas Walsh recounts Teresa's years of resisting complete self-surrender to God before finally entering with undivided will on the way of perfection; of her terrible anguish over the Lutheran heretics falling into Hell and of the grievous penances and sacrifices she undertook for their conversion, and of her many adventures in opening up houses of cloistered contemplative nuns. A masterful biography of a remarkable woman who was a mystic and foundress, the reformer of Carmel, a doctor of the science of divine love, and now, recently proclaimed "Doctor of the Church!" Fabulous! 592pp PB. Imprimatur
