I haven't read the book yet but I did go over a little bit on the other ones by the same author, they were good. So I'm hoping this would be good to.

I thought when I was ordering this book that it would be very academic and boring, I was surprised to very that it is very easy to read and also very interesting.

An ordinary woman loving God extraordinarily.. Feb. 7 2012
By Claire G Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Reading any other works of Teresa of Avila without having read her autobiography robs the later works of the one thing they need: context. This is a woman of many facets with one goal--loving Jesus. Her lessons from later works make much more impact after reading this work first.

Excellent book! Dec 27 2012
By amgates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent source of spiritual wisdom and prayerful advice. She speaks from her own experience about her spiritual development. She is very candid and open when talking about her failures and successes in her prayer life and relationship with God which I think would be of help to everyone.

Great Role Model for girls and women. July 22 2013
By kathleen silvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a Catholic who has come back to the Church this past year, trying to catch up on my lack of knowledge of the Saints. Still in process of reading it and highlighting lots of text.

Excellent text, format. Easily readable. Right size to put in my purse and carry with me when I go to medical appts. at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

Reawakens the necessity of contemplation............ April 12 2013
By bird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your focus is to attain self-discipline, get on with understanding yourself motivations, St. Teresa's life can prepare you to face the distraction and overcome the put-down with which you surprise yourself. There's always room for a little contemplation in this hurry-up-to-death world.
wisdom for today June 21 2014
By K. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am surprised by how much I am enjoying this book, having thought it would be rather stuffy and too "mystical.". The introduction was boring, but St. Teresa's words are not. More than once, I found myself flipping back to the dates she lived (1515-1582). Could she really have lived almost 500 years ago? But it is true--human nature doesn't change, nor do the dynamics of society; only the details and players change.

St. Teresa's humility and bare honesty are so refreshing and encouraging, particularly in contrast to what appears today in popular writing, most especially anything on the internet. She speaks truth for today when she says, "I am sometimes astonished at the harm which can be caused by bad company; if I had not experienced it I could not believe it. This is especially so when one is young, for it is then that the evil done is greatest. I wish parents would be warned by me and consider this very carefully." She writes similarly of the dangers of too much freedom given to people who are prone to succumbing to bad influences around them (writing about herself as a young nun, that she wished she had been held closer to the convent). More good advice for parents!

St. Teresa also wrote of the harm done to her soul by being told sins she knew were serious were not serious, and sometimes told they were not sins at all. Amazing! This is exactly what happens today when we do not call sin what it is, but excuse it and thereby many souls just sink deeper into their own ways of thinking and doing, leading them further and further away from God.
