Teresa of Avila
"Fr. Kavanaugh skillfully selects and arranges passages from Saint Teresa's writings, which tell both the story of her prayer and the content of her contemplation. These selections permit us to 'taste and see' God's self-revelation to a woman totally surrendered to God living theology, in other words.”
Kevin Culligan, O.C.D.
Institute of Carmelite Studies, Chicago, IL.
"Kieran Kavanaugh, who has given us such fine contemporary translations of Teresa, here focuses on the rich content of Teresa's contemplation, seen through a prism of many colors, from the darkness of the abyss to the bright light of the interior Sun.”
