Product Description

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 a treatise of utter simplicity that offers lucid instruction to all seekers of a more meaningful way of life.

Reprint of The Way of Perfection from The Complete Works of Saint Teresa of Jesus, Volume II, Sheed and Ward, New York and London, 1946.
