Enkindling Love chronicles the journey toward a living partnership with God, as articulated by two of Christianity's great mystical teachers. Excerpts from the seven dwelling places of Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle are held together with selections from John of the Cross’s Dark Night of the Soul, Spiritual Canticle, and The Living Flame of Love, in order to show stages of growth and transformation.
The book chronicles our partnership with God as we accept the divine invitation to deepening friendship and intimacy and begin to live in the full fruition of the mystical life. Moving through the process via textual passages and commentary, readers are invited to consider how the love of God actively invites us into deeper relationship not only with God but also with self and other.
Because Teresa and John experienced God’s love as a transforming power, they teach that it is a participatory reality that shapes and remakes us, even as it invites us to collaborate with God in the remaking of our world.
