Read full description of the books Teresa of Avila: The Book of My Life:She was the last person anyone would have expected to become a nun, yet she became one of the most celebrated nuns of all time. She was a brilliant administrator when such vocations were virtually closed to women. And above all, she combined an astonishing proclivity for ecstatic union with God with down-to-earth practicality and good humor. Teresa of Ávila (1515–1582) is one of the most beloved of the Catholic saints. During the era of the Spanish Inquisition, Teresa wrote an account of the mystical experiences for which she had become famous. The result was this book—one of the great classics of spiritual autobiography. With this fresh, contemporary translation of The Book of My Life, Mirabai Starr brings the beloved Spanish mystic to life for a new generation. And in this audio edition, Tessa Bielecki delivers such an engaging reading of The Book of My Life that it seems as if we are listening to Teresa of Ávila herself.
This audiobook also includes Teresa of Á vila’s “bookmark” prayer, sung in English and Spanish. This moving prayer was found in Teresa’s prayer book after her death, and it is another lingering display of her deep connection to the Divine.
