Teresa of Avila by Mirabai Starr

Book Description

'A cause for celebration. Captures Teresa's conversational enthusiasm most effectively' - "Library Journal" (starred review). This autobiography of Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) combines ecstatic experiences with a dose of common sense. One of the great classics of spiritual memoir, this is the first new English translation in forty years, and the first by a woman. With this fresh translation of "The Book Of My Life", Mirabai Starr brings the inimitable Spanish mystic to life for a new generation, with contemporary English that mirrors Teresa's own earthy, vernacular Spanish, and that presents us with - four centuries after Teresa's death - someone we feel we know: a woman intoxicated with God yet filled with an overflowing love for the world.
