Teresa of Ávila : the book of my life by Teresa( Book )

14 editions published between 1960 and 2010 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sixteenth-century Carmelite nun, St. Teresa of Avila was the first women to be named a doctor of the Catholic Church, and to this day -- largely as a result of her writings -- she remains an important and inspiring religious figure. Her autobiography is an inviting and timeless guide to the hows and whys of letting God into your life. In a natural and engaging narrative voice, she tells of her own complex spiritual awakening, traces her education and subsequent humilitations and exaltations, and discusses prayer's power to uplift the soul and her own experiences of God's presence. She was both a mystic and a religious reformer, and her ecstatic visions, fervent piety and spontaneous writing style make her a fascinating character and a profoundly effective spiritual guide.
