Reviews

"This is a book about one who has experienced union with God by one who longs for it. It is an excellent introduction to Teresa's writings and the life of a Christian mystic." --Joan Nienhuis, Blog writer

"The notion of what is now called contemplative prayer is explained simply and without cluttered metaphors or boring, uninviting narrative. In early chapters, Burney shows us how Teresa was captivated by the nature of our souls; believing that they are like gardens, planted by God and ideally, tended to by us. The vessel by which we are to water our tender soils? Prayer. But not exactly the rote, practiced soliloquies we might be familiar with. No, this is something else and as you read further in the book, you'll find yourself drawn to following St. Teresa and Burney on the journey to revisiting how we pray." --Tracey M. Lewis, heARTtalk (Blog)
