Teresa of Avila: The Book of My Life

Teresa of Avila:The Book of My Life Teresa of Avila:The Book of My Life New Seeds/Shambhala

Mirabai Starr, translator

New Seeds/Shambhala, 2007

Starr, who also translated The Interior Castle, presents a new translation of Teresa of Avila's autobiography about her spiritual struggles leading to conversion and then to her profound encounters with God. 

The clarity of the modern words makes for clarity in understanding the 16th-century mystic's spiritual experiences and brings them to life for those today who are striving for depth of prayer and oneness with God.

"A cause for celebration. Captures Teresa’s conversational enthusiasm most effectively. - Library Journal (starred review)


“Crisp, contemporary language puts Teresa's famous passion for God in stark relief." -Publishers Weekly
