Title: Teresa of Avila. Outstanding Christian Thinkers
Description: London England / New York, Continuum, 2000. Reissued, Binding: Soft Cover, Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo 0826450814 Paperback Paperback. Teresa of Avila. Sunned spine. Underlining and ticks in margin in pencil to some pages. Together with her contemporary and friend, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila stands at the highest point of Catholic spiritual writing in the troubled age of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. She is also one of the founding figures of modern Spanish literature. Her vivid descriptions of her experiences in prayer have long made her an object of intense interest to psychologists of religion. This book makes use of recent historical research on Teresa and her society and provides a full introduction to all her major works. It shows Teresa to us as more than just a chronicler of paranormal states of consicousness. She emerges as a genuine theologian in her own right, with a powerful contribution to make to contemporary understanding. Above all, Teresa is concered with developing a model of Christian life as friendship with God, a God who abandons statutus and dignity for the sake of human beings. In this book, the author also shows how all Teresa's major writings concentrate on this incarnational framework. 177 pp.
