Product Description

Millions of hearts have been touched by Therese of Lisieuxs's desire, not to be mighty and great, but to be a humble, little flower that would gladden God's eyes as He glances down at His feet. Canonized in 1925, she was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997 by Pope John Paul II because of her writings that have touched generations of souls. Written in obedience to her Carmelite superior, Therese's personal story was edited and published following her death in 1897 at the age of twenty-four. Combining charming descriptions of family and community life with a sense of humor and intense devotion to God, her autobiography became an instant bestseller. Earlier editions of Therese's modern spiritual classic have often excluded passages, and refined her use of the French dialect often spoken by peasants. Edmonson translates everything and retains the complete charm of the original. The result is a complete and unabridged work, longer than most other editions available today. Careful research and attention to accurate, flowing language are the hallmarks of this new translation of The Story of a Soul, written by the saint known to us as the "Little Flower."

Publisher's Description

St. Thérèse's autobiography was first published soon after her death in 1897 at the age of twenty-four. Combining charming descriptions of family and community life with a sense of humor and intense devotion to God, it was an instant bestseller. But earlier editions often excluded passages, and refined her use of the French dialect often spoken by peasants. This remarkable new translation includes every word of the original text, retaining the complete charm of the original. The result is a complete and unabridged work, longer than most other editions available today. Millions of hearts have been touched by St. Thérèse of Lisieux's desire, not to be mighty and great, but to be a humble, little flower that would gladden God's eyes as He glances down at His feet. Now, yours will be, too. Robert Edmonson also took the time to translate the poem "Divine Prisoner" which is referred to in Story of a Soul as Thérèse's favorite poem, and as the inspiration behind her name "Little Flower."
