She was the last person anyone would have expected to become a nun, yet she became one of the most celebrated nuns of all time. She was a brilliant administrator when such vocations were virtually closed to women. Narrated By: Tessa Bielecki.
And above all, she combined an astonishing proclivity for ecstatic union with God with down-to-earth practicality and good humor. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582) is one of the most beloved of the Catholic saints. During the era of the Spanish Inquisition, Teresa wrote an account of the mystical experiences for which she had become famous. The result was this book-one of the great classics of spiritual autobiography. With this fresh, contemporary translation of The Book of My Life, Mirabai Starr brings the beloved Spanish mystic to life for a new generation. And in this audio edition, Tessa Bielecki delivers such an engaging reading of The Book of My Life that it seems as if we are listening to Teresa of Avila herself. Abridged. 5 CDs. 6 Hours. Read by Tessa Bielecki.
