The Way of Perfection: Dover Thrift Editions

Autor Teresa of Avila Editat de E. Allison Peers
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 2012
This classic of the interior life and Christian mysticism remains as fresh and inspiring today as it was 400 years ago. Written by a prominent sixteenth-century Spanish mystic and Carmelite nun, it forms a practical guide to prayer that embraces readers with its warmth and accessibility.
St. Teresa of Avila's detailed directions on the achievement of spiritual perfection designate three essentials fraternal love, detachment from material things, and true humility. She discusses a variety of maxims related to the practice of prayer and concludes with a thought-provoking commentary on the Lord's Prayer. A work of sublime mystical beauty, "The Way of Perfection" is above all atreatise of utter simplicity that offers lucid instruction to all seekers of a more meaningful way of life."
